RESOLVED: Trouble with installation on Mac OS Sierra


#1

Heyo,
I’ve been trying to install Homebrew, but every time I put in the code, it requests a password on the bottom command line, but it can’t be written on, so its impossible to input my password (theres just a small icon of a key there). I have installed x-code, I’m running OS Sierra 10.12.4 & am the administrator. Anybody know how to fix this? I’ve pasted the console text below. Thanks so much

Type your password in the console and hit enter. It will not show e.g. * characters when you do so.

I have the same issue- I get the Key icon, and it does not allow me to type in a password.

Just type in the password and hit enter.
