I am trying to install Homebrew on Lion but keep getting an error.
$ /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/gist/323731)"
I run the above code, which results in:
==> This script will install: /usr/local/bin/brew /usr/local/Library/Formula/... /usr/local/Library/Homebrew/... Press enter to continue ==> /usr/bin/sudo /bin/chmod o+w /usr/local ==> Downloading and Installing Homebrew... bin/brew: Can't create 'bin/brew' tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors. Failed during: /bin/bash -o pipefail -c '/usr/bin/curl -sSfL https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/tarball/master | /usr/bin/tar xz -m --strip 1' ==> /usr/bin/sudo /bin/chmod o-w /usr/local
I have seen a couple of 'answers' to this problem which basically suggest running the initial command as root. This fails with the following error:
$ sudo /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/gist/323731)" Don't run this as root!
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
