I downloaded xgboost and tried to install from source

I also tried to install gcc5 by

brew install gcc@5

Which gives

Error: gcc@5 5.5.0_2 is already installed

When I type gcc -v it gives

Configured with: --prefix=/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr
–with-gxx-include-dir=/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX10.14.sdk/usr/include/c++/4.2.1
Apple LLVM version 10.0.1 (clang-1001.0.46.4) Target:
x86_64-apple-darwin18.5.0 Thread model: posix InstalledDir:

Are there any specific steps to be followed on Mac to configure it?

Any help highly appreciated.


#2

Try setting the environment variable CXX=g++-5.

Also, I suggest that you use a more recent version of XGBoost. All existing docs assume that you are using 0.72 or higher.
