and you're not completely prepared to have to firewire into your machine and replace the hacked launchd with the original again...

I have little idea how you would debug the actual error. Anytime I click on the system preference I get the above error in the logs.

What you end up doing is starting the processes very exactly. –Darryl Hein Oct 9 '09 at 7:16 The other issue is that we couldn't find an reasonable way Louis, MO #5 rdowns said: ↑ Go easy on me. So it is clear that called procedure isn't doing anything to those parameters; they are just used to report the error if it occurs -- because if the error doesn't occur, Error handling, such as it is, won't change, but the logging...

http://serverfault.com/questions/35293/osx-cron-causing-the-following-error-could-not-setup-mach-task-special-port-9 So I fixed it. :) Yes, my cron jobs are now running quietly and correctly, the way they always should have.

but this explains a bunch of non-system stuff running even though i cannot see and turn it off in startup/login items. This procedure call to mach_error_string turns out to be a unique signature in the 10.5.8 version of launchd -- it only occurs once in the source code. coincidence? So… Apple gives us a bug; drops the ball on fixing it; I entirely lost patience and hacked it out of my face.

And I'm not calling task_for_pid. http://nerdlogger.com/2010/08/26/osx-server-could-not-setup-mach-task-special-port-9/ which means i can turn some of that stuff off. And there you have it. So be aware of that.

Both of these things are issues that cron solved many years ago and now launchd is trying to replace, but just isn't there yet. –Darryl Hein Oct 9 '09 at 7:17 this contact form You can create a launchd job using a GUI such as Lingon if you'd prefer instead of making the .plist yourself. I have real work to do and I need to use the console output in that work. That allowed me to precisely locate the code within the launchd executable.

Only signed code is allowed to call task_for_pid(). –user23743 Apr 28 '11 at 7:46 Graham, I don't know what a "signed" application is. What we need to do here is replace that with something harmless (in context) of the same length. I went and read up on launchd; and while I agree it looks like it could launch my three tasks at the appropriate intervals, it also looks to me like in http://strobelfilms.com/could-not/could-not-setup-mach-task-special-port-9-mysql.html If you need to replace the cron jobs with launchd jobs, I would try using Lingon.

Learn more technical stuff here.Launchd is pretty good, and Lingon makes it great. There's only one instance of this binary string in the entire file. It won't help a PPC system, sorry. –fyngyrz Mar 4 '14 at 23:28 OK - thanks - that explains it - I wonder what the PPC fix is -

no more "Could not setup Mach task special port %u: %s" messages. Most of Google's search results also don't have conclusive mention of what the error actually means. That's not the kind of thing the serious Koolaid drinkers at Apple would ever do.
