Been having this issue on my main account on multiple computers. However, the issue does not come up when creating a new user account. Have done a HEAD install of watchman but to no avail.
Here is a gist - https://gist.github.com/kellyjandrews/394097ae8786e2a352a1
Totally workin - I had to restart my React packager.
FWIW - I had a ton of clean up work to brew that I needed to do. Running
Not sure which step I did that ended up resolving it, but the out of date-ness may have played a factor.
Thanks for the guidance - now I can go play :)

I'm getting the same error on OSX 10.9.5.
I've tried installing the HEAD version as described above but I'm getting the following when just running
@MarcL what does
Did you uninstall watchman between some of these attempts?
Had the same issue, was able to resolve it by:
removing any pre-existing install of watchman in brew
became non executable and I kept getting permissions issue the next time I ran
so I tried
and my issue became fixed.
@wez - This is an FYI in case you need it but it looks like watchman is now working.
This is after getting the permissions error and not re-installing watchman:
I've tried reinstalling watchman again (as per your recent commit above) and also removing the plist files as described by @emekanw but I still get the same "invalid command" issue when just running
I'm looking forward to playing with React Native and contributing some components back to the community.
