Ahh, you must be using Jaguar.


This was reported in a prior post & a resolution was also posted.'


For some reason, Jaguar wants /opt to be invisible.


Here's how to make it visible (from the previous post).


Upgrading to Jaguar causes the /opt folder to be invisible to the Finder -- It is still intact, you just can't see it from the desktop.


To make it visible again, do the following:


Open a Terminal window.


Assume the root ID by entering:


su root


Enter your (Mac OS X) Administrative password when asked


Change to the root file level:


cd /


Edit the .hidden file with pico by entering (note the dot before the file name):


pico .hidden


with the arrows, navigate down and delete the line containing:


opt


save the updated file by entering:


Control-o


followed by:


Return


Exit pico by entering:


Control-x


Reassume the cfmx user ID by entering:


su cfmx


From the Apple menu select Force Quit... (or press Command+Option+Escape).


Select the Finder and click Relaunch


When the finder is relaunched, you should see the opt folder on Macintosh HD, just as it was before installing Jaguar.
