Problem sovled This issue was caused because I had imported a time machine back which was made using snow lepoard. Doing this had overwrote the mountain lion libraries. I just had to reinstall mountain lion over the existing install and then xcode and homebrew and it worked fine.

pgrep is a fairly new addition to OS X. It may not be available in 10.7 I would use pkgutil and check for a package id and install time or the command is not available in your version OS X. pkgutil --file-info /usr/bin/pgrep

No, it's not shipped until 10.8 so you'll need to get it elsewhere for 10.7 and earlier. Starting with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, the pgrep command should be in /usr/bin/. In a Terminal type the following and press enter. whereis pgrep Looking at the contents of the InstallESD.dmg from "Install Mac OS X Lion.app", pgrep is not present.

Douglas Teoh has made an app called SlowQuitApps, that does exactly this. An OS X app that adds a global delay of 1 second to the Cmd-Q shortcut. In other words, you have to hold down Cmd-Q for 1 second before an application will quit. When the delay is active, an overlay is drawn at the center of the screen.

Open Refine When interacting with large and messy text csv and other structured text files, I now typically go to Google Refine (now called Open Refine). I've used it for TSV/CSV, JSON, and XML documents. In my experience it crashes rarely, and is pretty good for mangling data (you can apply transformations with scripting languages). Its approach is more ...

I'm posting the non-answer of "I reinstalled OSX and upgraded to Maverick from Lion, and it now works" because, well, it now works. Unfortunately I don't know what were the actual reasons it broken and then un-broken. I am sorry to anyone whom this question didn't help at all. If anyone else comes up with a reasonable explanation I'll mark them as the ...

I had the same issue. My workaround is to open a new viewer window in full screen, which allows me access to my other messages in the preview pane, and ability to copy attachments, text back and forth to the full screen window through swiping with my fingers. Works pretty well.

I had to add add to your command for it to work on OS X. First, connect your vpn and find the interface name: ifconfig. Mine was also ppp0. Then run: sudo route -v add -net 10.41.0.0 -netmask 255.255.0.0 -interface ppp0. -net is a modifier on the add command. Works like a charm.

"Network Accounts unavailable" is an indication that the device is unable to communicate with Directory Services (Open Directory). You need to make sure that you are on the same subnet as the server (the subnet that was used when the Open Directory was created as this seems to be a MacBook and mobile). You also need to make sure DNS is setup correctly ...

This seems to work for XCode 5, remove --dry-run to actually perform copy. sudo rsync -ai --exclude subversion\* --exclude SVN\* /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr / sudo ln -sf /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/xcodebuild /usr/bin/ Or go to https://developer.apple.com/downloads/ and search for "xcode" - there are downloadable ...

I was just going to comment on the accepted answer (but don't have the reputation for that yet.) As a user of Caskroom.io, I would also recommend adding: sudo chown -R admin /opt/homebrew-cask sudo chmod -R g+w /opt/homebrew-cask since cask, an extremely useful extension to homebrew, puts all its files in /opt/homebrew-cask

The easiest way I found was to create a new folder, copy all the sub-folders of the greyed out folder into the new folder, and voila, the new folder is not greyed out. You can even do this in the finder.

Something really, really bad happened to your internal 1 TB drive: The GUID partition table was somehow replaced by a dual (and therefore additionally false) MBR partition table. You may recover the previous GUID and your missing volume with a disk recovery tool like Disk Warrior to some extent. But since you have a backup just restore it: In case you ...

I was getting the same message. First I tried the Keychain First Aid which found nothing wrong. I then went to the Disk Utility and selected the Macintosh HD and ran Repair Disk Permissions, then went back to the Keychain First Aid and ran it again, still did not show anything wrong BUT, now my Keychain is working as it should.

sshd doesn't "re-read" it's configuration file, it restarts itself (refer to man sshd(8)), however, it shouldn't kill the child/connections if you sent the SIGHUP to the PARENT of them all. That is when you are talking about sshd that binds to port 22, as in the "usual" with Linux/FreeBSD/etc. [there are exceptions and sysadmin reasons why to follow the ...

I'm battling the same problem with my Mid 2007 (7.1) iMac running Snow Leopard.

Using MapKeyboard, you can alter any key on your keyboard to function as a different one or altogether disable it as well. This is an essential tool for ...

So I took a Thunderbolt/USB 3 drive, formatted it GUID and installed Yosemite to it from my wife's laptop (which is running Yosemite). Then simply plugged the external ...

By default, "logging" is not enabled. But you may get some useful information by running the mail command. TL;DR on the mail command: press enter to read messages, and then q and enter to quit.

I think the idea is that the website author creates an "app" in the Chrome Web Store, and then you can install that app within Chrome, and then when you open it, it opens in it's own window, with it's own icon in the dock etc.

ppcleaner is the best route but needs administrator protection - I can't comprehend why Apple would consider chess an essential program - no one in business wants to pay staff to play chess and will be a consideration when buying my next batch of computers - pretty but useless is my conclusion.

Perhaps that new RAM is faulty. Even though the RAM passes the power-on self test (POST) It could still be the root cause of the Kernel Panics. Have you tried taking it out?
