MacOS Monterey (beta)


So yesterday, Apple introduced the next set of operating systems for iOS, MacOS, tvOS, iPadOS, and tvOS as well as a bunch of interesting upgrades for all the new hardware. I took the plunge with installing it on my M1 Macbook and here are some thoughts on items as I see them evolve.


Overall


Overall, most things work out of the box with no problems.

  • R, RStudio (minus git as described below)

  • Mail - I wish they would add "send later" but works great and has more privacy functions.

Safari


It is still REALLY FAST and new layout for the tabs.

Development Tools


The first thing I did after install it was to install the latest version of XCode 13 beta. It is a very large installation and I installed the optional development tools.


However, in `RStudio`, there was no `git` tab, so I knew there was a problem.




In the terminal, I verified there was an issue by trying to get the status of the same project folder.


rodney@Rodneys-M1 landscape-genetics-workshop % git status
xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun

To fix it, I had to install some additional tools from the command line.



rodney@Rodneys-M1 landscape-genetics-workshop % xcode-select --install
xcode-select: note: install requested for command line developer tools

Now it all works perfectly.
