Working version of Homebrew for OS X 10.10

Working version of Homebrew for OS X 10.10

The only way to get working Homebrew on OS X 10.10 for now (10.10 beta was just released a couple of hours ago) is by using an special fork by @jacknagel available at https://github.com/jacknagel/homebrew/tree/rb2.

To install this working version of Homebrew just execute:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://gist.githubusercontent.com/jpincheira/bd3698fee46735fac252/raw/2c6a2f81927871c1a64e2dfbbc5eef451c71a9ac/homebrew.rb)"

# This script installs to /usr/local only. To install elsewhere you can just
# untar https://github.com/jacknagel/homebrew/tarball/rb2 anywhere you like or
# change the value of HOMEBREW_PREFIX.

will this work then doing a brew update ?? I tried adding the remote myself but a brew update would chance to master and I had to remerge to the rb2 branch..

Another thing then using the rb2 branch I cant get brew cask to work.. any idea?

$ brew cask
Error: Unknown command: cask

@tcarlsen, sorry, I didn't try with a brew update. I removed brew completely and then just executed this and it works fine.

@koenpunt
koenpunt commented Jun 3, 2014

It's not the only way, I extracted the 1.8 Ruby version from the Mavericks installer and that worked fine as well.

@kwent
kwent commented Jun 3, 2014

This is working fine. Thank you.

brew doctor
Error: No such file or directory - /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/clang

@danscan
danscan commented Jun 3, 2014

@zaur I'm also getting the Error: No such file or directory - /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/clang error when running brew doctor.

@ready4god2513

That branch appears to have been removed. Is there another solution?

@jozefvaclavik

It worked for me. Anyway, there is already official fix Homebrew/legacy-homebrew#29795

ahmetb commented Jun 4, 2014

The command in the gist is not working for me:

==> Downloading and installing Homebrew...
fatal: Couldn't find remote ref rb2
Unexpected end of command stream
Failed during: git fetch origin rb2:refs/remotes/origin/rb2 -n

Is rb2 branch still there?

@indrayam
indrayam commented Jun 4, 2014

Same here.

@indrayam
indrayam commented Jun 4, 2014

Never mind. It seems the core install works on 10.10. Although brew doctor command keeps failing. Does not seem to be a show stopper so far

@koenpunt
koenpunt commented Jun 5, 2014

Homebrew has been updated to use the Current Ruby version, so a simple git pull will probably suffice:

cd /usr/local && git pull origin master
@iesta
iesta commented Jun 5, 2014

I get :
error: Untracked working tree file '.gitignore' would be overwritten by merge.

@joshualambert

I'm getting this error when doing the pull.. Any ideas?
➜ local git:(master) git pull origin master /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/libexec/git-core/git-pull: line 11: git-sh-setup: No such file or directory ➜ local git:(master)

@joshualambert

@iesta Maybe try doing git checkout -- .gitignore first?

@ryangurn
ryangurn commented Jun 6, 2014

I get the same error

fatal: Couldn't find remote ref rb2
Unexpected end of command stream
Failed during: git fetch origin rb2:refs/remotes/origin/rb2 -n

How should I go about fixing this?

@felipemobile

Same error here

Thanks for posting an update @Spharian 👍

@aprescott

I worked around this issue by updating brew with git instead of my broken brew command:

cd /usr/local/Library/
git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/master master
# on branch master
git pull

@koenpunt
Thanks, that worked:

cd /usr/local && git pull origin master
