I’m trying to get my colleagues to use
nix. So far I prepared a basic
flake.nix with a package
ROOT (the derivation is mostly pulled from the official package, with minor tweak and
nixpkgs-fmt applied). The project is at here.
One of my colleagues is using macOS Big Sur, the other Catalina. I asked both to install
nix-unstable with numtide’s installer, tweaked their
/etc/nix/nix.conf to be the following:
build-users-group = nixbld experimental-features = nix-command flakes sandbox = false
They both have
nix flake command working. But in my project, Big Sur reported the following error during compilation:
error: builder for '/nix/store/sqym5b5sxva0wg9xjr4ri1fpj5ggiqrv-root-6.24.00.drv' failed with exit code 2; last 10 log lines: > [ 79%] Linking CXX shared library ../../../lib/libCling.so > [ 79%] Built target Cling > [ 79%] Built target G__Core > Scanning dependencies of target Core > [ 79%] Linking CXX shared library ../lib/libCore.so > ld: framework not found CoreSymbolication > clang-7: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation) > make: *** [core/CMakeFiles/Core.dir/build.make:502: lib/libCore.so] Error 1 > make: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:24441: core/CMakeFiles/Core.dir/all] Error 2 > make: *** [Makefile:171: all] Error 2 For full logs, run 'nix log /nix/store/sqym5b5sxva0wg9xjr4ri1fpj5ggiqrv-root-6.24.00.drv'. error: 1 dependencies of derivation '/nix/store/pplxs4j9b25zzvaccalg1bpq9cplwlq1-root-curated-env.drv' failed to build
whereas Catalina works without problem. It is also worth noting that the official
ROOT package works on both with a
nix-shell --pure -p root
Somehow on Big Sur, the linker can’t find the underlying apple library? What should I do to fix that?
