10.4: How to recover from a launchctl config error
Authored by: nclark42 on Jun 16, '07 12:10:29AM
this hint saved my life, i was considering doing an "archive and install," which would have been a huge PITA.

i assume we're all referring to the same thread on xcode-users:

http://lists.apple.com/archives/xcode-users/2006/May/msg00671.html

and i also assume that none of us read the rest of this thread:

http://lists.apple.com/archives/xcode-users/2006/May/msg00836.html

"Beware! Do not copy and paste this into Terminal. There should not be a space between /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ and com.apple.dnbobserver.plist. It could completely hose your system."

*sigh*

anyway, once i figured out what the problem was, it was pretty easy to fix... i didn't edit the files, i just copied them off another system onto a usb hard drive and then plopped them back in place.

anyway, thanks for the help guys :-D
