Hi all ,
I have been trying to install kdb+ using the steps on the website https://code.kx.com/q/learn/install/ but I have been unsuccessful. To start off, the spctl and xattr commands don't work. Secondly I realized I may have the wrong q build since I am using M1. I couldn't find a version compatible with arm64 on the website and there's only one default version for Mac.
Any help would be much appreciated . Thank you !

There is a note on this page which will be of help
xattr commands above have not authorized the OS to run q, open System Preferences > Security & Privacy.
You should see a notification that q has been blocked – and a button to override the block.

I am having the same issue on M1 Pro. During step 4, when I run command q/m64/q, I get error
"q" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Bin.
Running spctl --add q/m64/q also gives an error:
q/m64/q: invalid API object reference

q may have been quarantined by the OS. Can you try to run :
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine path/to/m64/q

Confirming that xattr command has resolved the issue. Thank you
