I installed a lot of OSS packages when I got my new MacBook. After many updates and 2 OS upgrades XCode command line tools has REALLY gored itself. IT thinks it is installed. But everything I try to do says CLT is NOT installed. I have attempted with GREAT prejudice to delete XCode and reinstall. Mostly all I have done is lose the source code for my website. But CLT is still not usable.
I am now to the point of ready to reinstall 10.14. I do have a time machine backup but have never tried to use it to recover an entire machine before.
Will this really work? I am pretty stuck right now as Ruby but if I’m going to have to start from scratch in setting up I’ll just do without.
Opinions on bare metal reinstall?
