- autologin already selected
* de-select autologin, close sys prefs, re-select autologin (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1936)
* can also add Terminal to start up service for convenience 

- have apache2 start (http://rapd.wordpress.com/2007/04/23/configuring-apache2-and-php-on-mac-os-x-for-development/)
* in /usr/sbin: sudo mv apachectl apachctl1.3
* in /usr/sbin: sudo ln -s /etc/apache2/bin/apachectl apachectl

- restart slave
* setting up entry for /Libraries/LaunchAgents (to run when mozqa logs in)
** buildbot.start.talos.slave.plist - xml file that auto start the buildbot slave on log in

buildbot.start.talos.slave.plist

Add this file to /Library/LaunchAgents/ 

It will auto-run when mozqa logs in.

rebootTiger.zip

Installation instructions:

* System Preferences -> Accounts -> mozqa -> Login Items -> add Terminal
* set autologin
** System Preferences -> Accounts -> 'Click the lock to make changes' -> Login Options -> deselect 'Automatically log in as'
** System Preferences -> Accounts -> 'Click the lock to make changes' -> Login Options -> select 'Automatically log in as mozqa'
* grab rebootTiger.zip
* unzip in /Users/mozqa/
* sudo ./reboot.sh
* attempt reboot, should come up clean
** open Terminal app
** buildbot started
** apache2 started (check with sudo apachectl -V)
* remove rebootTiger.zip, reboot.sh
