Kext Helper 0.7 Root Password Mac OS X - 07-13-2010, 03:44 PM
I have OS X installed on my Dell Mini 1010 but I need the Root Password, I do not have anything installed on here by OS X(No Windows) and I didnt put any password for anything.
I even did this Enabling and using the "root" user in Mac OS X and added a "root" password and used that root password in the Kext helper, still didnt work, WHY? what is the root? how do i make it work

Often what is referred to as root password is actually administrator rights. To gain administrator rights you may be asked for a password. It's not actually the root password being requested, its your password. Most Mac tools used the "sudo" paradigm where they ask for your password to enable admin rights.
