[GE users] sge on Mac 10.5 non-server OS

In looking this over this weekend, I realized that I made an error.  The 
clients are working just fine, it is the Server that is not.  I thought 
that I had it all figured out.  It was working on Friday, Saturday, 
Sunday, but when I came in today, the entire grid was not working.  The 
act_master file had changed.  I am not really sure of what has happened. I 
need to look at it some more.

So far, I can not find any error messages in any logs.  Do you have a 
suggestion on where to look?

Hi Brett,

Launchd should work on non-server OSes (I haven't tried SGE
specifically, but I use launchd to run Ganglia).

What is the error message you are getting when using launchd? In
/var/log/system.log or elsewhere?
