Error in default Apache2 installation (OSX Snow Leopard)

Default Apache2 installation in Snow Leopard shows this error when you try to start:

/usr/sbin/apachectl: line 82: ulimit: open files: cannot modify limit: Invalid argument

This error is caused by:

ULIMIT_MAX_FILES="ulimit -S -n `ulimit -H -n`"

In /usr/sbin/apachectl file.

You can fix it changing the line to this one:

ULIMIT_MAX_FILES="ulimit -S -n" 


Still not ready for HTML5?

Here is a new round of HTML5 support test. All browsers (and OS) updated except for Safari:

  1. Chromium [110.696]: 278 + 13 / 400
  2. Opera [11.10]: 258 + 7 / 400
  3. Safari [5.0.2]: 228 +7 / 400
  4. Firefox [4.0.1]: 240 +9 / 400

Total points has been raised to 400 instead of 300.
Tests with Ubuntu 11.04 and Snow Leopard.
I know Safari has a better support of HTML5 in newer versions, Can anyone send a test? Thanks in advance.

How to change GDM theme without extra tools

 An easy way to change GDM's theme is putting gnome-appearance-properties.desktop as an autostart app:

sudo cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/

After this move to System > Close session > Change user.

Select a new theme. Log in again and remove gnome-appearance-properties from autostart apps:

sudo rm /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop

Good luck.
