BusyBox, however, is available for Mac OS - see this Github repository for example. That said, I'm not sure what problem you're trying to solve as Busybox is simply ...

OK. I'll try to answer both questions and if you need a follow on question to get progress that's fine as well. Don't su between users to test things that are broken. It's far better to let OS X allow fast user switching and get a real, honest terminal open for the new user to test All you should need to do is have the user used to set up homebrew allow ...
