comment Run a shell script on OS X without having a terminal window appear?
I’m using mplayer to play a video from within a slideshow (in Skim). There is a bug that the player stays in the background if Skim is set to fullscreen, I’m not sure though, whether this bug is only related to Skim or all fullscreen apps, so I figured I would post my solution here.

comment Run a shell script on OS X without having a terminal window appear?
I tried to run a command this way from a full-screen app, however it always opened it in the background. I had to background the command in the shell in a non-blocking fashion by appending a & and then call an AppleScript to bring the app (in my case mplayer) to the front: mplayer myvideo.avi &; osascript -e 'tell application "System Events" to set frontmost of the first process whose displayed name is "mplayer" to true'

Ah, the good old drawback of hiding complexity.

comment Using an SD card as a “LiveCD” on a MacBook Pro
@zneak, Thanks! But one more question: in the tutorial they use sudo dd if=/path/to/downloaded.img of=/dev/rdiskN to copy the image to the flash device. Will this step still work or will it override the HFS+ partition?

@zneak: How to I create this partition, with the Disk Utility app? I couldn't find an option for HFS+.
