Taking advice from your post: Use gen_tool for debugging

I am on Catalina 10.5.1. I'm in the new zsh on Catalina of Terminal.

when I run:

% sudo ~/Downloads/install_tool.sh

and answer y to the question about generating a report, I get:

"./install_tools.sh: line 54: gen_debug: command not found"

Do I have to switch the shell (how?)? Or is this a permissions problem on Catalina 10.15.1 ?

There is no /usr/bin/gen_debug created by the install_tool.sh.

>> Added:

Just tried the install_tool.sh in the Bourne shell , sh. Gave the same result.

>>> And more

I see that the install_tool.sh starts itself in the bash shell...

run these 3 commands in terminal first:
Code:
sudo spctl --master-disable
sudo mount -uw /
sudo killall Finder
then copy gen_debug to /usr/bin

post 1 explains how to download and install
Thanks. This worked on Mojave but not on Catalina for me. I get "ACPI files were dumped more than 1 day ago" even though I have pressed F2 and F4 at boot screen, tried many times, no joy....
