- **prey daemon constantly respawing
Could you please describe the problem?
I noticed the following, reinstalled prey, but the messages continue every 10 seconds:
May 12 08:39:07 powerhouse com.apple.xpc.launchd (com.prey.owl): Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.
May 12 08:39:38 — last message repeated 2 times —

Prey is running and the location is correct now; however, having the system log filled with prey messages kind of defeats the stealth purpose. If there is more data I can collect let me know. I checked the .plist file for com.owl.prey and it seems ok and some services are running as prey user:
$ ps auwwwx | grep prey
