Support Forum » mac osx 10.8.2 no longer supports gcc 4

a couple weeks ago i had an accident with my macBook air... fortunately i had backed up less than five minutes before the accident... hardware is ok now, my repair people also installed the latest version of osx and i sucessfully reloaded my backup...

when i tried to compile my latest avr project i got the following:

k712:rtACS1.x k712$ make
-bash: make: command not found

when i tried to tell the system which compiler to use i got the following:

k712:~ k712$ avr-gcc-select 4
avr-gcc-select is not supported any more.
This version of CrossPack for AVR Development comes with gcc 4 only.

i'm stuck... does anyone have a suggestion for what i should do next?

Seriously, I'm primarily a PC guy, though I do own an old mac mini that hasn't been turned on in months. Hopefully one of the other mac members can get on board and help.

I think you need to reinstall crosspack from the download. Most applications have to be reinstalled after the OS is replaced.

Rick... very funny!!!! please lets not ignite the pc vs mac thing in this forum... besides i think these microcontrollers are way-cooler then all the magic you can buy from microsoft or apple...

Noter... before i started working on my project yesterday i downloaded and installed both the latest prolific usd-serial driver and crossPack 20130212... then i got the fustrating messages... after reading your suggestion this morning i reinstalled crossPack again from the dmg file that i hadn't trashed yet and... voila... the make command works!!! now i just have to correct the usual incredibly long list of errors the compiler found in my source code...

thanks as always!!!
