Testing OS X installer


#1

Hello

I recently heard that OSMC’s installer isn’t working in the upcoming macOS release, Sierra:

I’d like to get to the bottom of this before this new version is released as stable, and I’d appreciate your help. After speaking with @srmo, we suspect that the enumeration of SD cards is broken in this new version. It would be great if we could get some feedback of the current installer (on osmc.tv/download) on Sierra. I think the following would be particularly helpful:

  • Output of the command LANG=C diskutil list when an SD card is inserted
  • A log from the OSMC installer, which should be in /Users/YourUserName/osmc_installer_log.txt
  • Lastly, confirmation of whether or not our installer works

Thanks in advance,

Sam

On a Sierra VM (under VMWare Fusion) diskutil reports the following after inserting an SD card:

ldg-sierra:~ ram$ LANG=C diskutil list
/dev/disk0 (external, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER

ldg-sierra:~ ram$

When I run the installer all works until it comes time to select an SD card when there are non listed. The log file is at the following location:

Howdy. @andy990525 from twitter.
exactly the same here
The installer does get stuck at device selection page, even when starting with sudo.

Hi folks. I’m looking into it.
Could you please also provide the info from diskutil info <disk_path>, where disk_path is the path of the SD drive? Like diskutil info /dev/disk1


#5

PS: info from the installer’s logfile is much appreciated too, as we have log entries on what the installer thinks about the different drives found.
Background: even if the installer’s list of devices is empty, the installer may have found several drives but decided that they are not suitable for installing and therefor does not display any of them.

Don’t we use rdisk for speed? Or is the output from diskutil the same and we only use rdisk for the actual IO operation?

Logs would be very appreciated guys, and should be in:

The output is the same for me if I use /dev/rdisk1:

Okay. Can you upload the OS X installer log (as suggested above) as well?


#10

I did, it’s in my first post.


#11

Thanks. Not sure how I missed that


#12

Hi

I think I see the issue. It seems that the check to evaluate whether the disk is read-only or not is failing.

Sam


#13

rdisk shouldn’t affect info-output (should be verified). Using rdisk for speed is only relevant for the actual write operation


#14

Yes, I think I found the problem. Will discuss on Slack.

Great, if you need more tests let me know!


#17

@srmo and I had a chat. We think we know where the problem lies and where to insert some debugging and extra logging. I don’t have long-term access to a Mac, and the one I do have access to doesn’t have an SD card slot, which can make my testing a little limited.

I think we’ll produce some new DMGs soon with some debugging. Then from the output we should be able to work out what the problem is.

Cheers

Sam


#18

Which diskutil info should I give?


#19

What do you mean? I was referring to the output of diskutil info <disk_path> where disk_path denotes the path to the volume you expect to appear in the installer. Example: diskutil info /dev/disk3

@All
Hi, I’m going to build an experimental debug build for Sierra users. Please bear with me as I have to tweak my local setup for this. Resulting DMG will be published here
