Like many of you I’ve just installed the brand new OS X version, Mountain Lion, but to my surprise it borked my Homebrew installation, and with it my ImageMagick and even my git.
After hours fighting I’ve found the solution to all my problems in a gist
Here it goes:
Also remember to run this for upgrading all your soft.
brew update brew upgrade
Then I had problems installing git, Homebrew didn’t let me.
~ brew update /usr/local/.git: Permission denied
I’ve found the solution in this other gist. As it’s just code, only by executing curl to its raw file the problem was solved.
Then I tried to run my rails server, but RMagick was throwing some errors. I took a deep look and noticed ImageMagick was broken as well. So, time to Homebrew again.
brew install imagemagick
Got some problems also with linking because I came from some already-installed-but-not-properly-for-Mountain-Lion setup. But linking all the problematic stuff with -f flag did the trick. For example:
brew link -f libtiff
Then insisting and insisting with its installation, everything was properly installed again. Phew.
Regards to all the authors of the gists I used. You guys are awesome.
