I am trying to install Nix from source following these directions: Building Nix from Source
Version 2.3.15, 2.3.16, or 2.4 will suffice.
I have installed these versions of
editline from here: GitHub - troglobit/editline: A small replacement for GNU readline() for UNIX
libeditline is too old:
configure: error: Nix requires libeditline; it was not found via pkg-config, but via its header, but required functions do not work. Maybe it is too old? >= 1.14 is required.
Furthermore, the version of
editline provided by MacPorts Install libedit on macOS with MacPorts
is not found at all:
configure: error: Nix requires libeditline; it was found neither via pkg-config nor its normal header.
Which version of
libedit should I install?
