Installation problems (homebrew.devcmdrun)


(Daneyh) #1

I’m having problems using brew on mac osx sierra. Upon following the instructions and installing command line tools for mac my installation of brew never completes.

I’m using the following command:

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Which gets me to:

==> This script will install:
/usr/local/bin/brew
/usr/local/share/doc/homebrew
/usr/local/share/man/man1/brew.1
/usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions/_brew
/usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/brew
/usr/local/Homebrew

Press RETURN to continue or any other key to abort

HEAD is now at 5b04152 Merge pull request #3133 from MikeMcQuaid/travis-umask

The thing freezes up at this point. I’ve tried chowning local folder like some others suggested and there doesn’t seem to be a problem with command line tools installation (as ‘make’ seems to be working). The problems seems lie on a command the installer is running which fails at the below line:

git config --file=/usr/local/Homebrew/.git/config --get homebrew.devcmdrun

But i’ve been able to use git fine for other uses on this machine. Any ideas where I can go from here?

Resolved by upgrading git from 2.11 (Apple) to 2.14.1 (The official git release).

Not sure what the problem was.
