Please join us on
Visual Studio Developer Community and in the
Mono organizations on
GitHub to continue tracking issues. Bugzilla will remain
available for reference in read-only mode. We will continue to work
on open Bugzilla bugs, copy them to the new locations
as needed for follow-up, and add the new items under Related
Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed on this bug
tracker over the years. Thanks also for your understanding as we
make these adjustments and improvements for the future.
Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
# Steps to reproduce
Clone repo then run make world
# Expected behavior
After installing dependencies, should be a working build
# Actual behavior
Says I do not have Xcode83.app installed. I do have it installed from the app store.
# Supplemental info (logs, images, videos)
I had to do a sudo ln -s /Applications/Xcode.app /Applications/Xcode83.app
and change my xcode-select to build the project.
# Test environment (full version information)
From the description, this appears to describe issues you ran into while building Xamarin.Mac from source.
As noted in the readme:
To ease development with different versions of the SDK that require different versions of Xcode, we require Xcode to be in a non-standard location (based on the Xcode version).
For example Xcode 7.0 must be installed in /Applications/Xcode7.app.
The recommended procedure is to download the corresponding Xcode dmg from Apple's Developer Center, extract Xcode.app to your system, and rename it before launching it the first time. Renaming Xcode.app after having launched it once may confuse Xcode, and strange errors start occuring.
In any case, bugzilla is the not the appropriate location for issues related to building xamarin.mac. We have a development channel on gitter
for such items.
