Just to cover the obvious, you've enabled USB debugging, right?
Yes, it is enabled. I've tried every combination of USB settings and running the command with SU privs. I've installed Heimdall twice, to make sure it wasn't a bad install, and I've repaired permissions, and multiple reboots of both devices.
It was my Mac. I'd been having issues ever since installing Lion, especially with WiFi and beach balls. So, I did a complete erase and install, and the first thing I did was install Heimdall and ran it, worked perfectly!
Is there any way around this? I would like to avoid reinstalling my OS. I believe that I have the same exact set-up (with Lion). This is my very first time Rooting, coming from the HTC Touch Pro 2. Forgive my noobness...
For what it is worth, heimdall and heimdall-frontend from 64bit Linux, using the official packages off the website yields this:
