Thanks, I had a rough understanding of this. However, my service simply types the clipboard as keystrokes. So nothing seems context-specific about this, and nothing needs to be selected. Why would that stop working?

With the correct gcc, the script fails much later, but with ./install-sh -c -d /usr/local/bin /usr/bin/install -c -m 755 rsync /usr/local/bin install: /usr/local/bin/rsync: No such file or directory make: *** [install] Error 71 logout

I simply deleted Xcode, I think. Yes, maybe gcc came with homebrew. So that's a problem? And it makes no sense to try clang instead?

@bmike Also, I like that you're interested in the specifics of the problem, but I was interested in a specific solution. Why can't ask for that too? I don't see why clang would be irrelevant here.

comment Course of action to clean up RAM on sluggish mac
@Mark I get that, thanks. I would still expect to be harder to run out of RAM if the OS were releasing its cache. I suspect it does not really.

comment Course of action to clean up RAM on sluggish mac
@Dempa The OS (plus launchdaemons) uses 5 GB after a reboot. It does not leak and take more than that. However, I don't see the OS caching etc. being smart, as apps seem to use only the remaining 3 GB, I don't see the OS flexibly releasing more as the apps run into, say, the last 1 GB of free RAM. With smart caching I would expect it to be harder to run down to 30MB of free RAM. But no, this is easily possible with a few apps open, as the apps seem to share only the 3 GB not free after a reboot, and never get back more than that.

comment Course of action to clean up RAM on sluggish mac
@Dempa I use Chrome Canary with quite a few flags turned on, maybe it does eat a few GBs. But even in that case, I would expect Yosemite release some RAM if it was hoarding it only "just in case" while it could. When I am down to 300MB or less, I cannot accept the OS still taking up 5GB and not releasing it. That's not smart caching, that's a memory leak. What else is there to do to investigate?

comment Course of action to clean up RAM on sluggish mac
Well, Chrome is a memory hog for sure. Easily losing 2 extra GBs from the 3 left free even if only 3 tabs are open. Many other operations are sluggish, esp. the Finder (shall I suspect Dropbox?). I was suspecting disk intensive operations to be slow (esp. on a spinning HDD), but running down to 30-200 MB free RAM makes me suspicious that Yosemite is not that efficient managing caches and RAM. Or what could I check for you, and how?
