Nix on MacOS Catalina

very weird, just delete the lock file and try again

that did more, but still:

error : linking with cc failed: exit code: 1

proc-macro2 is part of rust itself not something we wrote :thinking:

is this the only output you get? i would expect more information

this is what happens each time on new install

Well that sounds like a previous version of cargo, which version are you on?

I wouldn’t advise to delete the Cargo.lock file. It’ll get you into untested territory as the dependencies in the Cargo.toml aren’t all pinned.

@pqcdev if you go the cargo route I suggest you use the main branch on the holochain repository because we (for now manually) ensure that it builds on macOS in our Nix infrastructure that feeds HoloPortOS.

@steveeJ i suggested deleting the lock because it seemed to me like whatever was there is corrupt somehow

cargo 1.33.0-nightly (907c0febe 2019-01-20)

I followed cargo installation link that David gave me (altho I already had it from redux, perhaps its not updating properly?)

sounds like I should just get Linux… any suggestions on a good PC laptop to buy? or maybe how best I can go about this? unfortunately cant get a desktop bc I dont have a permanent home

I can use my Macbook for everyday stuff and the other comp for Happ building

many thanks to all of you!! :pray:

you can use docker to get linux on mac

cargo is rust though, it’s going to be the same tool on mac/linux

In that case a git checkout Cargo.lock should do help recover that. If that wouldn’t help the git data was probably damaged.

This is severely outdated. Have you tried rustup update?

I meant so I can use Nix

yes I’ve tried that, buutt… rustup default nightly worked

cargo --version
cargo 1.52.0-nightly (572e20153 2021-02-24)

however, still get:

cargo install --path crates/holochain

oh I see, that’s a good start :smiley: however we don’t require nightly so you could do rustup install stable && rustup default stable && rustup uninstall nightly

Stating that I’m not an expert on macOS is a strong understatement, however I believe @thedavidmeister already pointed out the solution for the missing xcrun here:

stable worked!! hooray :tada: :confetti_ball: :fireworks: :pray: :pray: :hugs:

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH

I’m glad to see something worked eventually.
Can you summarize here recommendations for this, based on your experience now, for future-readers?

Nix was unable to install due to error about unencrypted / read-only something weird. I had both Xcode and rust/cargo installed from redux but old versions that had trouble updating

Solution Summary

decided to use cargo method instead of Nix https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/getting-started/installation.html

make sure to sudo xcode-select --reset https://ma.ttias.be/mac-os-xcrun-error-invalid-active-developer-path-missing-xcrun/

also rustup update and if that does not work

then regular instructions:

git clone https://github.com/holochain/holochain

cd holochain

cargo install --path crates/holochain

should work! (might have to close and reopen terminal)

if you get:

"
Caused by:

failed to parse lock file at: /Users/username/holochain/Cargo.lock

Caused by:

invalid serialized PackageId for key package.dependencies
"
then use
