Just a follow-up on this.

Turns out that the build script does not​ clean up after itself so if you do builds/bootstrap for multiple versions, chances are you will have problems with conflicting/multiple versions of some gems. The trick is to clean out the debris from the build folder before running a different version build/bootstrap. Basically, wipe out anything that isn't in the code tree. Then you can run in dev mode on bare metal. I've also been able to build releases for 3.3.1 and 3.4.0 in case you prefer running non-dev mode.

And... as a bonus, for M* users, if you are running 3.4.0, you will probably need to patch the net-http-persistent gem with the patch given here: https://github.com/rubygems/rubygems/pull/4138/files

This appears to work, but I haven't done a huge amount of testing.

Hey all

Just thought I'd pass this on for developers (or anyone) who may need to run AS versions prior to 3.3 on an M* mac.

V3.3+ appears to run fine bare metal with the mods outlined by Mark Triggs (https://teaspoon-consulting.com/articles/archivesspace-on-the-m1.html) but I could not​ get 3.1.1 or 3.2.0 to run. I tend to develop on bare metal since containers add enough overhead that its annoying (to me anyway).

However, 3.1.1 and 3.2.0 do run in a container and will connect to host versions of mariadb/mysql and solr - those can be run bare metal if you choose.
