`swift run` Server Error

Running swift run in the 00-book-server directory produces the following error on my machine:

My machine is running Big Sur and I’m using Xcode 13.0.

Looks like an issue in SwiftNIO, I’ll check later today what I get - I also have BigSur on my machine :+1:t3:

@icanzilb find anything for this issue?

I get a different error, they must’ve updated Vapor since we published the book. In the worst case we’ll fix Vapor to some older version.

Meanwhile, could you please try this:

  1. cd into the server folder
  2. rm -Rf .build to clean all old checkouts
  3. rm Package.resolved to make sure versions aren’t pinned
  4. swift run

I found a solution on the swift forums - while the Apple team is working on properly backporting the Swift Concurrency module you need to run the server as:

swift run --configuration debug -Xlinker -rpath -Xlinker "$(xcode-select -p)/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/lib/swift-5.5/macosx"

So it can find the Concurrency module inside the default macOS SDK

@icanzilb Is there an update on this issue?
I am seeing the same errors posted above and I am running Monterey and Xcode 13.0. I also tried the solutions in the comments and that did not work as well. Thanks!

Can you describe what do you do and what error do you get?

I run swift run or the command from your comment:

in the 00-book-server directory and get

Could you please make sure you followed the steps I listed above - including cleaning the build directory and deleting the package lock file?

If you still get the same error, please let me know what’s the output of swift --version so I can try to reproduce

Yep, I tried the cleaning steps as well, and here are the errors after the steps listed above:

[1043/1044] Compiling NIOCore ByteBuffer-lengthPrefix.swift
error: fatalError

The output of swift --version:

swift-driver version: 1.26.9 Apple Swift version 5.5 (swiftlang-1300.0.31.1 clang-1300.0.29.1)
Target: x86_64-apple-macosx12.0

I’m a little confused myself to be honest, since you have macOS 12 SwiftNIO should be compiling just fine…

What I notice is that the backwards compatibility of the Concurrency module was introduced in Swift 5.5.2 and you have 5.5 so that might be hitting some edge case in the conditional compilations in SwiftNIO.

Have you tried installing the latest Xcode?

So yes I installed the latest Xcode but my command-line tools were pointing to Xcode 13.0, not Xcode 13.2.1, and changing that fixed it for me. Changed it under Xcode → Preferences → Locations. Thanks for your help!

you’re welcome, this really ought to be an issue on NIO’s side where an if isn’t checking for 5.5.2 but 5.5 :man_shrugging:t4:

I am getting this error when trying to run swift run:

Merging module COperatingSystemerror: error reading dependency file ‘/Users/NN/Desktop/Async:Await/ray async:await/00-book-server/.build/x86_64-apple-macosx/debug/COperatingSystem.build/Exports.d’: unexpected character in prerequisites

I have Xcode 13.1 and running macOS Monterey 12.2.1

I’m gonna go on a limb here and guess that the error message saying “unexpected character in prerequisites” is about those colons in the folder names. Can you check out the repo is a folder with a simpler name like “swiftconcurrrency” and try again?

I had a “fatal error: could not build module ‘Darwin’ book server” error.

This set of commands resolved my error.

Cheers!

This error means there is a problem on the server side. A server error can be caused by any number of things from uploading the incorrect file to as bug in a piece of code. This error response is a generic “catch-all” response.
