- In general, if issues occur installing certain dependencies of Storm make sure to also consult the documentation of the corresponding dependency.
- When manually installing CArL make sure you are using the
master14branch of CArL as the current master branch uses a newer C++ standard that Storm does not require and therefore does not enable.
OS specific issues
We list common issues for specific operating systems.
- Make sure to have Xcode and its command line utilities installed:
$ xcode-select --install
Start Xcode at least once such that required components might be installed automatically.
- For macOS 10.14 “Mojave” a common error is the following:
configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
This error might be due to missing header files which can be installed by the following tool:
$ open /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/Packages/macOS_SDK_headers_for_macOS_10.14.pkg
For more infos see this GitHub issue.
