I was scanning my Mac OS X with sophos antivirus and opened the console. I see this over and over again.

How do I tell whatever it is to stop trying to launch tuncfg? I recently reinstalled my operating system because I accidentally messed up some key library for using the terminal when trying to install macruby.

I would look for /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.hamachix.*.plist and /Library/LaunchAgents/com.hamachix.*.plist; any matching files should be disabled in launchd and then removed.

$ sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.hamachix.tuncfgd.plist
$ sudo rm /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.hamachix.tuncfgd.plist

(The above example is a guess based on the logged launchd job name and pid; the actual file name(s) and location(s) may be different.)

thanks, those commands worked. I don't see those messages in console anymore. – Andy Mar 14 '11 at 4:26
