Vapor Installation Issues (First time using Vapor)

(Jake Tiritilli) #1


I am new to using Swift and am interested in learning Vapor. I recently installed Vapor with Homebrew, but when I use any Vapor command from the terminal, I receive this error:

dyld: Library not loaded: /Users/tanner0101/dev/vapor/toolbox/.build/x86_64-apple-macosx10.10/release/libSwiftPM.dylib
  Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/vapor
  Reason: image not found
Abort trap: 6

I am using the latest stable versions of Xcode and Swift, and tried reinstalling with brew install -force vapor/tap/vapor, but I still keep getting the same error. Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks for the help!


Toolbox was updated earlier today and it looks like something may have gone wrong with the home brew upload.

Just updated the package and it's now working correctly, thanks.

Vapor Installatio Issue

I am trying to install Vapor on my MacBook Pro running macOS Mojave 10.14.1 through homebrew. I keep on getting this error. Can anyone tell me what's wrong and how to fix it ?


Have you already tried brew update?

(Jainam Shah ) #6

Yes I did brew update as well. Still getting the same error


Give this a try.

This is an issue with homebrew and not Vapor btw.

Hey thanks for the reply. The installation worked but now I get an error saying

RuntimeError: /usr/local/opt/pkg-config not present or broken
Please reinstall pkg-config. Sorry : (

When I try to link the pkg-config using 'brew link pig-config'

I get an error Error: Could not symlink . /usr/local/opt is not writable.
