Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Sylvain, Thanks for all of the info about package managers for macOS. I never knew that there were so many! I will only use a package manager when I really need to, like when I installed lpc21isp. Is there a default order that a Mac will use the package managers in, assuming that at least two packag...

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Thanks, cdmackay. I will leave both Brew and MacPorts installed. The only utility that I have installed using Brew is lpc21isp. I have not any installed any other utilities with Brew or MacPorts. I will keep your advice in mind and will not install the same utility with Brew and MacPorts.

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Hello Sylvain,

Thanks. Is there any harm caused by leaving both porting solutions installed on my computer? I have not noticed any conflicts, but would like to know if it would be better for me to remove one of the porting systems.

Thanks,

Bob

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

All, Thanks for your help and for your answers to my questions. I was finally successful in installing the lpc21isp port. I did another Google search and landed on the website http://macappstore.org/lpc21isp. I found the following instructions there: _________________________________________________...

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Hi Sylvain, I tried what you suggested. I obtained the error that you mentioned, so the xcode command line tools were already installed. I then exited the Terminal application. After that, I started a new Terminal session, using the following three lines (with my comments in parentheses); sudo port ...

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Thanks for your response, ctrclckws. Yes, you are correct (I just checked my DM15L). I was aware of the instructions page but had not fully explored it previously. I held down the E key, then pressed and released the [ON] key. This gave me the firmware version, the configuration, and several other v...

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Thanks for your response, Bob. This answer those two questions.

I checked the configuration of my machine as you described. It actually shipped with the M1B configuration. It has version 28 installed (I think I checked this before), which is why I am trying to upgrade to version 29.

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Thanks, cdmackay. Do you have any thoughts on my other questions, which do not concern installing lpc21isp? These are as follows. Do the DM15Ls ship with the M1B variant firmware? Is there any harm in downloading the M1B variant firmware, under the assumption that more memory is better? Thanks again...
