Sorry, no idea - I suspect that eclipse is quite capable of rewriting your $PATH.
I think you need to launch eclipse from terminal as admin maybe -
open -a "/Applications/xxxxxxx.app"
Thanks everyone for all the help so far. I have the build in eclipse working. Now I need to flash to the photon. After a do a build from the main directory what will the name of the output binary be? The binary I would flash to the module? Even better where would it output to? ideas?
Please have a look here: https://github.com/spark/firmware/blob/latest/docs/build.md
I am able to build and flash the firmware from Eclipse now. Ill try to put together a tutorial on this today.
I want to say thank you to @kennethlimcp @AndyW @mdma and @jakeypoo your assistance on this matter is greatly appreciated. As promised here is a link to the guide I put together for setting up Eclipse on Mac for compiling and flashing firmware to the photon:
Please feel free to ask questions on it or point out any typos/incorrect information.
Thanks again everyone.
It would be great if you can post the information under… firmware or tutorial so more people have access to it
Will do. I was thinking that, just never got around to it.
