I recently got a new laptop with Apple's M1 Max processor and now the IGraphM installer



enter image description here

FYI, I ran this in Mathematica version 13.0.1 on macos 12.3.1.

So what I'd like to ask:

  1. Is it possible to install IGraphM on the M1 architecture? (Given the fact that it runs on ARM-based machines like RaspberryPi, the answer is probably "yes".)

  2. How to install it and make it run?

    $\begingroup$ I don't currently have the time to check this, but hopefully a useful suggestion. There's Rosetta. "Rosetta 2 enables a Mac with Apple silicon to use apps built for a Mac with an Intel processor." $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It looks like IGraphM specifically lists which systems it is compatible with here, this is why the paclet issues a message and won't load. As an experiment, could you open the paclet info file (found in the directory PacletObject["IGraphM"]["Location"]) and manually add your $SystemID to that list? I would expect it to just work via rosetta but I am far from an expert $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm very sorry about this, I simply didn't have time to fix everything I needed and create a new binary (which is also a bit troublesome since I need ask for access to a suitable computer...) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @TugrulTemel I am already using the ARM64 version of Mathematica. The problem is that some parts of the (external) IGraphM package have to be recompiled, too. $\endgroup$ Apr 6, 2022 at 18:49

Release 0.6 with Apple Silicon support is out now.

(Version 0.5.x does not support Apple Silicon, but you can run the Intel version of Mathematica even on ARM Macs.)

    $\begingroup$ Thank for this. I will try it with my new Mac Studio M1 Max and let you know the result. $\endgroup$ Jun 4, 2022 at 23:20
