comment How to start/stop/restart launchd services from the command line?
@conny It might be confusing in the general case, however when you are writing a service and you suspect for example that something nasty is happening on startup, you can load it once and the use 'stop'/'start' to debug the issue.

comment How to start/stop/restart launchd services from the command line?
@conny: you need to load the service first before starting it, this is what the load subcommand do. Contrary to the what you may one expect, one cannot start a service that hasn't been loaded yet. Once a service is loaded one can use 'stop' and 'start' subcommands to stop/start the service. To make sure the service is no longer running use the 'remove' command ('unload' would do that too) -- this will unload the service and any future 'launchctl start' commands will silently fail. Hope that helps.

comment Identifying what is causing High IO (Linux, Ubuntu)
@Bartek: you can also use the -o switch, which tells iotop to only show you the processes which are doing io.

comment Cannot install git-core using macports
Very strange since our configuration is identical. If someone doesn't come up with a good answer to your issue if I were you, I would reinstall macports and give it another chance. Good luck.

comment Cannot install git-core using macports
My configuration (OS version, macports version) is identical to yours. I just did sudo port clean all; ports selfupdate; ports install git-core and the installation completed with no issues. One difference I noticed between your install attempt and mine is that your list of dependencies is much smaller. For example, I had to install perl5, while this package is missing from your list. Do you also happen to have fink installed in parallel?
