I'm running macOS in a virtual machine and getting errors installing developer tools.

I was trying to install xcode-select --install

Video: xcode-select --install does not finish installing Minute 2, from second 27 until 29. Check the file applessdstatistics...

What I need to install xcode-select (not xcode enterely)?

Thank you!


Using Command_Line_Tools_macOS_10.12_for_Xcode_8.2.dmg of https://developer.apple.com/download/more/ doesn't work properly...

I found the problem...

Previosly I had reduced the Memory from 2048MB to 1536MB.

I know the minimun requirement is 2048MB.

I tried creating a new Virtual Machine using 1536MB, but it was very slowly...

Then I need to restore the memory from 1536MB to 2048MB.

  • Good catch that running macOS virtualized has lots of pains and problems that may not be apparent at first glance.
