Was working on a client's laptop, a Black MacBook running OS X Tiger (10.4.11). I had to install a program for him but he couldn't remember his system password, so I booted the computer off the OS X DVD and reset his password.
The problem then was that the system PW was no longer in sync with the keychain, so anytime a program needed access to the keychain, it would prompt me for the old system PW, which I obviously don't know!
So I went into the Library folder and dragged the Keychain folder into the Trash so that the keychain could be rebuilt.
But now his laptop is no longer automatically connecting to his primary Wifi access point and it has to be manually selected. And I'm still getting prompted for the old keychain PW when I try to connect to the Wifi network. I can click on the Details tab and select the user's main folder from the list and it seems like it's pulling the keychain from there. But then after I reboot the system I have to jump through these hoops all over again.
How can I solve this problem? Thanks in advance.
