This is an interesting and unusual problem.

I wonder if there is a text encoding problem, so that the thing that looks like a j is not a j?

Try copy/pasting this and tell me if it works.  I know it looks the same to you and I but it might look different to the computer.


./ -j4 mode=release bin


Also try just (with no arguments) and let me know if it starts doing anything. (You can kill it after 2 minutes or so; no need to wait for it to finish.)

Thank you for helping me!

When i copy your code ,it is still doesn't work and show:

-j: command not found

when i input python,it doing nothing.

If I have installed SCons in a wrong way? i just download scon-3.0.0.tar.gz from website and uncompressed it,input :

sudo python install

did it wrong?

Did you originally type the '>' as part of the command? If so, that would explain the initial issue, as that would cause your shell to view the as an output file and use the -j as the command.

Unfortunately, that now means your ./ script is no longer functional, as it would have been overwritten by the (non-working) output from your first run. This would be the reason why the `python` does not work. (As is now empty.) There really isn't a way to recover from this, short of re-extracting your Rosetta installation. (Though if you have some other Rosetta installation elsewhere , you can just grab the `Rosetta/main/source/external/scons-local/` script from that installation and copy it to the same location in your 3.9 copy, as that particular script hasn't changed for Rosetta since at least 2011. )
