I am trying to troubleshoot/fix my IMAC with Snow Leopard for over a month. I have never been able to start it in safe mode for some reason.

So I found an instruction how to start it from terminal and I tried that but it said no such command.

Here's what I did:

I was at -bash-3.2#

As Instructed, I typed the following

sudo nvram boot-args="-x"

It said sudo command not found so I tried this: sudo nvram boot-args="-x -v"

and got the same command not found response

How do I do this start from terminal

Nothing works to restart in safe mode which apparently is supposed to be very simple but eludes me?
