Max OS X: Tunderbolt Ethernet trouble shooting (via: Ask Different)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/20

Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet AdapterEvery once in a while my Gigabit Thunderbolt Ethernet adapter would show this in the Network Settings:

Status: Cable Unplugged Either the cable for Thunderbolt Ethernet is not plugged in or the device at the other end is not responding.

That’s not much use: it does not tell if the Thunderbolt or the Ethernet side has a problem.

Continua v1.5.0.338 got released last week (via: Version 1.5 History | Continua CI – Page2RSS)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/15

Two changes I really like in the new v1.5.0.338 build of Continua CI version log history:

  • Update: Better messages when handling errors expanding variables

That makes debugging build issues a lot easier, as many of them are related to (environment) variables.
