Very recently, iTerm has become unresponsive for me when I open new instances of it. Whenever I open a new window or tab of iTerm, Xcode seems to be attempting to recompile a slightly older version of the operating system on boot. I believe this because if I open another terminal and cancel whatever is causing the window to hang, and run
ps, I see the following:
1117 ttys000 0:00.01 /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/as 1118 ttys000 0:00.22 /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/clang -x assembler - -o a.out -integrated-as -c 1121 ttys000 0:00.01 /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/clang -cc1as -triple x86_64-apple-macosx10.15.0 -filetype obj -main-file-name - -target-cpu penryn -fdebug-compilation-dir /Users/me -dwarf-debug-producer Apple clang version 11.0.3 (clang-1126.96.36.199) -dwarf-version=4 -mrelocation-model pic -o a.out -
This is concerning, because:
- I'm on catalina (10.15.4), so it doesn't seem like Xcode should be doing anything with 10.15.0
- I did not accept any system prompt asking me to update. I've also run Xcode to see if I should install anything that may be out of date and it seems happy enough, so there shouldn't be anything there.
- It hangs indefinitely and does not ever finish. It's preventing my shell from loading (
zsh) which is annoying.
Has anyone run into this or have ideas about what's going on?
