Hi! I've followed the install instructions selected the main HD for Mac and often wondered about this also. It's strange, that after receiving an installed sucessfully message, the files are still missing. Could these have installed to a different location?
Sorry for not getting back sooner but thank you for the info on the driver install! Found out about a week later, that wasn't the issue at all, I just needed to make sure the R.I.C.E cable was connected before connecting to my Ascend saber, then the configuator would read the USB.
Thanks again for your time, it's much appreciated!
I'm having issues using the SiLabs driver with Adafruit Feather ESP8266. (using OSX 10.12.6, Arduino 1.8.3)
One of the fixes is to uninstall the latest driver and fall back to the Legacy one.
However when checking after install (either), there is no /System/Library/Extensions/Si* anything.
There is however a /Library/Extensions/SiLabsUSBDriver.kext
And Arduino wont connect, saying
esptool v0.4.9 - (c) 2014 Ch. Klippel <firstname.lastname@example.org>
An error occurred while uploading the sketch
setting board to nodemcu
setting baudrate from 115200 to 115200
setting port from /dev/tty.usbserial to /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART
setting address from 0x00000000 to 0x00000000
opening port /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART at 115200
error: cannot access /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART
error: espcomm_open failed
error: espcomm_upload_mem failed
I've confirmed that on macOS 10.12, the driver is located at /Library/Extensions/SiLabsUSBDriver.kext. I'll update the article.
I'm not familiar with esptool, but it appears it is unable to open the COM port. Can you start a thread in the Interface forum to troubleshoot?: http://community.silabs.com/t5/Interface/bd-p/5
is it worth starting one on the legacy version. I will check if there is appropriate thread on the current version's failure to upload to Feather.
The EspTool is at https://github.com/espressif/esptool
And the overall error is discussed in https://hpclab.blogspot.com/2015/06/esp8266-arduino-ide-on-mac-os-x.html
Thanks for help.
A new version of the driver has been uploaded to our website, perhaps that will help with your issue? The release notes are:
Adds support for GPIO control.
Updated for compatibility with MacOS 10.11 Kernel driver APIs.
This is a significant update to this driver."
Edit: Sorry, I see from your thread that you're using 5.0 already. I'll look into this.
