Subject Re: [iOS] Call for testing
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2013 21:38:43 GMT
Interesting.  I ran this once and it worked (I had to use sudo).  Then, I
realized that I might have my xcode-selects variable set wrong since I
recently downloaded Xcode 4.6 via the iOS downloads page rather than via
the AppStore.   I put Xcode 4.6 into a subdirectory:
 /Applications/Xcode46/ rather than right in the Applications
folder.  I realized that I should have also updated my xcode-select
variable.   I did that:
      sudo /usr/bin/xcode-select -switch
Then when I run sudo npm install -g cordova again,  iOS fails:
   WARNING: Your system does not meet requirements to create iosprojects.
See error output below.
Xcode is not installed. Cannot add iOS platform.
SKIPPING ios bootstrap.

So, I would guess it has to do with the xcode-selects value.

Also, FWIW running the suggested sudo chown -R <yourusername>
/usr/local/lib/node_modules/cordova  command and it didn't work for me.  I
haven't investigate that yet.
