hi!

where are the settings for the items in the SystemPreferences are stored?
as i wrote before, my sysprefs crash when opening the Sharing panel.
now i want to delete the sharing settings. probably there's some shit in there that makes it crash :)

thanks for any advice.

Some of the settings for Sharing seem to be in /etc/hostconfig

This file doesn't have the setting for FTP access or Remote AppleEvents, so there is obviously another file somewhere, but I can't locate it. This may be enough to make things work for you though.

Here is an example of a setup that works:

##
# /etc/hostconfig
##
# This file is maintained by the system control panels
##

# Network configuration
HOSTNAME=-AUTOMATIC-
ROUTER=-AUTOMATIC-

# Services
AFPSERVER=-YES-
APPLETALK=en0
AUTHSERVER=-NO-
AUTOCONFIG=-YES-
AUTODISKMOUNT=-REMOVABLE-
AUTOMOUNT=-YES-
CONFIGSERVER=-NO-
IPFORWARDING=-NO-
MAILSERVER=-NO-
MANAGEMENTSERVER=-NO-
NETBOOTSERVER=-NO-
NISDOMAIN=-NO-
TIMESYNC=-YES-
QTSSERVER=-NO-
SSHSERVER=-YES-
WEBSERVER=-NO-
APPLETALK_HOSTNAME="My Computer"

it isn't on a network yet. just inet via cable modem on the ethernet card. works fine under OS 9 and OS X. the filesharing panel worked with 10.0.4
when i log in as root it doesnt work either.

everything else works fine. hm. but i'll try the ram thing :)
an the mac is everything of the shelf except the added ram.

the System Preferences app just quits when i click on the SHARING symbol. i cant get into the sharing preferences.
i tried replacing it with the one from another 10.1 machine where it works flawless, but it still crashes sysprefs.
the system itselfs works fine. its just the system preferences app that crashes
