Some interesting reads for anyone wondering about the upcoming OS X 10.6.
This is a good place on Snow Leopard developments
This past weekend I was washing my truck and really wanted to clean my white lettering on my tires. Well, after some searching around the garage I noticed I was out of my normal tire cleaner. So I pondered for a minute and then decided to try my hand cleaner.
IT WORKED! The stuff actually worked and worked really well. What was it? Orange Goop hand cleaner. Stuff works on anything.
So today I had a professor bring their Leopard 10.5.4 laptop back to me because it was stuck booting up. Well, come to find out in single user mode the System log file had a whole bunch of lines like this:
com.apple.launchd (com.apple.mDNSResponder): posix_spawnp(“/usr/sbin/mDNSResponder”, …): No such file or directory
…com.apple.launchd (com.apple.mDNSResponder): Exited with exit code: 1
…com.apple.launchd (com.apple.mDNSResponder): Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds
So, after some searching I found that it probably could be permission problems. Sure enough, I changed the permissions on the root volume to 775 and bingo the laptop now boots. What the heck!
chmod 775 /
So, this is my first post from my iPhone. Very cool application. But it is scary to think that I can post from anywhere I have signal. Very cool!
