I ran into a problem when I downloaded El Capitan from the App Store. It started downloading and I switched tasks to do other things in the meantime. When I checked back with the App Store, it said “An error has occurred” next to “Downloaded”.
I didn’t know what to do at this point so I Googled around a bit and found a
solution. I need to look in my
Applications folder for the install file.
Double click it to run it and everything went fine from there.
After the installation, the
/usr/local directory was owned by
changed the ownership to me but this didn’t fix the problem because later
/usr/local/share reverted back to being owned by root. I
followed the instructions based on this El Capitan and Homebrew and it works now.
- Reboot machine in recovery mode (press ⌘R on reboot)
- Open up a terminal (Click on Utilities menu and choose Terminal)
- Reboot machine and log in as usual
- In the terminal type
- Reboot back to recovery mode
csrutil enablein terminal
- Reboot back to to OS X
If you want to look at the flags on a directory you can do
ls -lO dirname.
