When the system server is configured, why is it as a LaunchAgent instead of a LaunchDaemon? My understanding is that LaunchAgents are loaded only during a login session, and LaunchDaemons run in the background at all times and have no GUI. To get at the login screen before anyone has logged in, I’d assume it would have to be a LaunchDaemon.
From Apple’s own page on launchd:
If your job needs to run even when no users are logged in, put it in /Library/LaunchDaemons. If it is only useful when users are logged in, put it in /Library/LaunchAgents.
Everything else of a server nature on my system runs as a LaunchDaemon; I’m curious as to why VineServer runs as a LaunchAgent instead.
