- Why programmers & coders love Mac OS X: OS X has better cross-platform compatibility If you get a Mac, you can quickly run all the main operating systems, which is a big plus for those learning.
- Why Mac users still use OS X Snow Leopard Apple's decision to end support for OS X Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) is reasonable - but it's the kiss of death for a large segment of the Mac resale.

If it’s OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion that you need you can buy it for £19.99 here US or here UK As with Lion, Apple will send you a download code to use on the Mac App Store, so you will need to be. It lets you do things like brew install postgresql and it takes care of dependencies and configuration, etc. The alternative is to use (in the example of postgres) the OS X package that postgres provides or compile from source, and deal with debugging the weirdnesses that come up.

Just in case LSOF and grep doesn't work the first time for you like it didn't for me, LSOF is case sensitive!
lsof grep mail
got me nothing
lsof grep Mail
now THAT works!
It's actually grep that is case sensitive. Use 'grep -i' to ignore case.
run lsof as root to see all user's open files
Will this work for those stubborn CDs and mounted .dmg files that say they can't be ejected because they're '..in use'?
I'm guessing yes, and hoping I'm right!
If you know which file in Trash is in use (which apparently you do since you're grepping for its name), open Terminal, enter 'lsof ' (mind the space) then drag the file's icon from Trash's Finder window into the Terminal window. That'll put the full path of the file on the command line so just hit Return and lsof will spit back the program information.
The grep method is useful for the other person who can't unmount volumes because a file on them is in use.
I don't seem to be able to get this to work (either that, or I'm just failing to notice something obvious). To test this I mounted an image file in Finder, then deleted the .dmg file (without ejecting the mounted image). When I try to empty the trash I get the 'File in use' message, but when I enter the command.. Auto tune evo vst travis scott settings youtube.
..I don't get any output. I've also tried..
..but that didn't return anything either. This seems like it could be a very useful command (especially if it can be used via OnMyCommand), if only I could get it to work.

Could it be that a mounted .dmg file isn't registered as the kind of file that lsof looks for?
Doesn't work for me either - Nick
Help. We are getting the same error message about the file is in use but it is when we try to delete a file from a server or when we try to replace a file on the server. We just started using OSX within the past few weeks, I know better late than never, and we are working with a Netware 6 server.
If the culprit turns out to be the Finder you can release the file by doing a 'Force Quit' on the Finder and choosing relaunch.
there's always good old rm -f. that never complains. 'rm -f <pathtofile>' will take care of anything the trash bin can't.
sudo lsof grep ..

Then by accident I stumbled on 'What's Keeping Me?', a nice GUI to find those troublesome files/processes that are open.
