I read the 1.0.0 blog entry and think the move is a good one, but … how do I move my existing brews without uninstalling and re-installing everything? I couldn’t find any instructions for this. Hope there’s a shortcut otherwise its going to be a long night.
This should happen automatically when you
brew update, unless you have custom paths (which you don’t seem to).
To be clear, only the Homebrew/brew repository is moved to
/usr/local/Homebrew. Formulae you install continue to live in
/usr/local/Cellar and be linked into
/usr/local and that won’t change in the foreseeable future.
Hmmm. I’ve checked the version - definitely 1.0.0. I’ve run
brew update and
brew upgrade (a couple of times), yet there’s still no such directory
$ brew --version Homebrew 1.0.0 (git revision d5b6e; last commit 2016-09-21) Homebrew/homebrew-core (git revision 1cb2; last commit 2016-09-21) mike@Atlas ~ $ brew update Updated 1 tap (homebrew/core). ==> Updated Formulae gupnp $ brew upgrade $ ls /usr/local Caskroom bin include libexec sbin squid MacGPG2 etc lib opt share var $
For what its worth:
$ brew config

Your Homebrew repository is already in a non-standard location than
/usr/local, so there’s nothing to be migrated.
Ahhh. Thank you. I missed that. Must have done that ages ago.
