I’m trying to nix my new M1 Mac with home-manager and I’m thinking I might wanna skip xcode devtools altogether.
I’ve installed nix and home-manager and built a generation with git, but:
viktor@Viktors-MacBook-Air result % which git /usr/bin/git
So this is the fake Mac binary that prompts to install devtools.
However, my real git from nix is before on PATH:
viktor@Viktors-MacBook-Air result % echo $PATH /Users/viktor/.nix-profile/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
Only thing I can think of is that MacOS somehow continues traversing PATH until it finds a arm64 executable?
viktor@Viktors-MacBook-Air result % file /Users/viktor/.nix-profile/bin/git /Users/viktor/.nix-profile/bin/git: Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64 viktor@Viktors-MacBook-Air result % file /usr/bin/git /usr/bin/git: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: (x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64) (arm64e:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64e) /usr/bin/git (for architecture x86_64): Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64 /usr/bin/git (for architecture arm64e): Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64e
I have rosetta installed and the real git works fine from full path.
Am I misunderstanding the executable resolution? There’s no alias at play at least, but is there something else going on?
