Unable to Create new Site

When I try to add any new site with any settings, I’m presented with an error Error: spawn Unknown System error

I am using Local 6.5.1 on a Apple Silicon Mac

Here is the screenshot of the error

Hi, @chrisblackwell, and sorry that you ran into this! We appreciate the report.

The error suggests that some of the binaries that Local uses aren’t Apple Silicon -native yet, although the Local team plans to convert them all in time.

As a workaround for now, you could try installing Rosetta 2 via the terminal to see if the error goes away for new sites you create:

softwareupdate --install-rosetta

(Rosetta 2 is the translation layer that lets Intel apps run on Apple Silicon.)

This worked! Hopefully they can remove some of those old binaries soon so it can be completely native.

Thank you for the help
