Shut down the terminal window, then re-open it.  If you installed brew - which it looks like you did - you should be able to use the "brew" command to install stuff.  Let's see if you've actually got it...
Code:
ls /usr/local/bin | grep brew

That should return something to you... it's just a directory listing of the /usr/local/bin directory (where brew would get installed).  For example, on mine:
Code:
ls /usr/local/bin | grep brew
brew
If nothing gets returned, then you don't have brew installed.  I'm assuming this is your Mac, and you actually have administrator rights (you can put in your password to install software)... right?

I've got no clue what's going on, then.  All of the steps I laid out previously, I did on a brand new VM with OS X freshly installed.  It was a completely clean install.  Running the brew install script asked me for my password to ensure I was OK with what it was trying to do.  Now, if I attempt to re-run that install script I get this:
Code:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
It appears Homebrew is already installed. If your intent is to reinstall you
should do the following before running this installer again:
    rm -rf /usr/local/Cellar /usr/local/.git && brew cleanup
LOL... tell you what... if you're not looking for some crazy long vanity address, I'll just generate it for you... probably could have had it done by now Tongue

Well.. I want 1Nyau case-sensitive but I don't think it's safe, because you will have my private key.. :/

I'm not going to wreck my reputation here by trying to scam you, or anyone else.  I'll happily destroy the private key when I send the pair to you.  Generating addresses that start with that combination take seconds to do.  If you want me to generate a few for you, I'll PM you the public/private keys and then delete my PMs.

Completely up to you if you want.

Check your PM.  I generated 5 addresses for you starting with 1Nyau.  Once you let me know you've got them, I'll delete the PM.

Mac OSX vs any other operating system has nothing to do with it. Here's a site for you -> http://bitcoinvanitygen.com/

Good luck.

DO NOT USE THAT SITE!!!   Have you used that before recommending it Possum?   They are a known scam.   They stole 3 BTC from me and have been stealing from folks for a long time.

Please don't do this. Forum backups your PMs and sharing private key with others is not at all a good thing. I believe you know this, jonnybravo0311. Please use split-key generation when creating vanity addresses for others.
