10.4: How to recover from a launchctl config error
Authored by: Sijmen on Dec 20, '07 06:07:58AM

I've got no idea how to fix this problem. I'm a noob when it comes to the command line. Can someone explain how one enables launchctl after this screw up?

10.4: How to recover from a launchctl config error
Authored by: Sijmen on Dec 20, '07 06:48:59AM

Okay, here what I did:
Booted up in single mode(press S after chime)
A whole list of errors passed my screen. When I got the command line I typed:
'launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/'
Turned the machine off(by pressing the power button for 5 seconds)
Booted the system and everything was running again. And by everything I mean EVERYTHING! Every daemon in /LaunchDaemon was running. With Lingon and Blackle I turned of the ones I would never use and presto!
My PB is fine again :)
