Mac OS X 10.3: “/spool/cups/” Alert When Printing or Faxing

Shut down the computer by choosing Shut Down from the Apple menu.

Start up in single-user mode by pressing Command-S during startup.

At the command prompt, type: mount -uw /

Press Return.



Press Return.

Type: reboot

Press Return.

Ignore the shutdown nonsense…what we want here is CreateSystemUsers

Very handy if you do an upgrade…
