    Missing BSD Subsystem, can it be downloaded
    Hey everyone,

    I bought an iMac, it had Mac OS X already installed, but I don't really know if BSD Subsystem was installed. I don't have the Windows Sharing option, my BSD.pkg file in Macintosh HD -> Library -> Receipts says its "Zero KB", but the "apropos" file is there.
    So, I don't really know.

    I inserted the Mac OS X installation CD, went to the "Optional Installs" folder and the BSD Subsystem isn't there, neither is in CD 2.

    I tried executing the Mac OS X installation and I can't install it from there without first "erase and install" or something.

    Is there any workaround? I find it pretty weird that BSD wasn't installed and more over, that it is not even in my Mac OS X CD.

    Thanks in advance!

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
