Mac OS X Edison --user_mode install fails on flash tool install

Jump to solution

Trying to get edison toolchain installed on MacOSX ElCaptian

The GUI mode rejects any password provided as incorrect (root, user ... passwords tried).

The install only works in batch mode (install.sh --user_mode).

However, after connecting to the board and installing the Arduino files correctly, it wait for a password prompt. However again, , it fails independent of which password (root, user ...) is provided.

Anyone found a solution?

Thanks!
