  1. Awesome! So with the change to IPB will Tapatalk still work?
  2. I'm just curious, mainly bc I just bought the Tapatalk app from the AppStore purely to access this board. I'm a complete noob and I don't post a lot. Also I haven't been a member for too long. I do, however, read it almost daily. A lot it seems is over my head, so I'm also trying to play catch up.
  3. I'm sorry for opening up what is looking like a can of worms. I want to do whatever I can to help. Though I'm new to this all so I don't know what all I can do. I do have a 32bit Mac so if you need me to run some code or try this or that please let me know. I don't know if it really matters here but I was reading about snow leopard and found that it is a 64bit os that can run in 32bit. In fact the kernel defaults to 32bit even on 64bit machines, one would have to hold "6" and "4" in startup to run the kernel in 64bit mode. Would this mean anything? Like the OS is forcibly downloading the files
  4. Ok so I deleted the two lines in the build-mspgcc file and then built it again. I had the same errors, no change. I am also not sure how to upload the build.log.xxx file to the post. I tried as an attachment and then also as code input into the post. Neither one worked for me. Let me know if there is a way to do that. I'm thinking it must be something to do with the third to the last line: configure: error: libgmp not found or uses a different ABI. Again I am a complete noob, probably way off. Thanks again for all your help Robert!
  5. No such luck, I am getting the same error. error=86, bad CPU type in executable. When I ran the script it closed off with two errors, don't know if it means anything or not. make[1]: *** [configure-mpc] Error 1 make: *** [all] Error 2
  6. thanks for the welcome abecedarian and cde! to cde: Energia got up and running but when it came to compile it told me bad CPU type. I figured with it being a 16bit processor I'd be able to program it, it's just how exactly. I am a noob both to programming and microcontrollers, so It's going to be quite a learning experience. I do look forward to it, and with my 430 in my hand now, well, I want to learn even more. I do have my macbook set up with dual boot, but it is Ubuntu occupying the rest of my hard drive. thanks again for the replies.
  7. Absolutely! Thank you so much for the quick reply. I do already have Xcode, the most recent one I am able to get which is 3.2.6 I believe. Like I said though I am pretty fresh to programming, would this involve me knowing how to port the code for the older processor? I also want to say that I did use the macports install originally and when I entered mspdebug I got a bad cpu comment and it did nothing, I then used fink and installed the packages and now mspdebug seems to work. When I plugged the Launchpad in I had to type mspdebug rf2500 to recognize it. I'm sorry to be so longwinded I jus
  8. I have an older MacBook Pro with Intel Core Duo 32-bit, I am stuck with Snow Leopard and that is fine for now. I am very new to programming and just received my MSP-EXP430G2 today. I have not had an easy time finding support for those Macs that are not 64-bit. I came across your program and loved the interface and the potential. I try to run the blink example and get this: Cannot run program "/Applications/Energia.app/Contents/Resources/Java/hardware/tools/msp430/bin/msp430-g++": error=86, Bad CPU type in executable I'm sorry for this being a stupid question. It's just holding me up an
  9. Originally I'm from Alaska, just relocated here. My MSP430 Launchpad should be here tomorrow and I am very excited. Never played with microcontrollers before, or electronics, not to mention my programming skills are minimal. I decided I want to change all that and learn from doing, also the price was right. I will be using my older MacBook Pro that is only 32-bit so I'm stuck with snow leopard. I'm just concerned with what I'm going to be able to do. Most the Mac peeps I see on the forum are using 64-bit macs.
