MacOS crash using tinyprog



I have a tinyfpga BX. I have followed the instructions in the quickstart guide, but I receive this error upon trying to update the bootloader:

tinyprog --update-bootloader

TinyProg CLI
Using device id 1d50:6130
Only one board with active bootloader, using it.
All connected and active boards are up to date!

python(42937,0x7fffac5bf340) malloc: *** error for object 0x7fec8e015420: pointer being freed was notallocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
Aborted (core dumped)

Has anyone seen this before?


Are you using the Python built into MacOS or a version installed from Homebrew? I suggest installing Python 3.6 from Homebrew and try that.

What version of MacOS are you using?


I’m using High Sierra (10.13), and the python version is 3.6.5, installed via anaconda.
