Error building packages on Windows 7 x64. (Old title GR.jl)


#1

Hello.

I could install and use GR (through Plots) on my Windows 10 X64 computer with Julia 1.0.2.
But I’m not able to install it on the computer at work using Windows 7 x64.

I get this error:

julia> Pkg.build(“GR”)
Building GR → C:\Users\med\.julia\packages\GR\k8wwU\deps\build.log

I’ve tried both as administrator and as a user. I’ve tried applying exclusion rules on the antivirus and firewall. But nothing changes.

I don’t have problems installing other programs.

This may be the cure:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3140245/update-to-enable-tls-1-1-and-tls-1-2-as-default-secure-protocols-in-wi

And see thread:


#3

There is some SSL problem on your machine when the GR build script tries to download the run-time using a secure connection. As a result, build.jl tries an insecure connection, which seems to fail, too. It’s hard for me to identify the real problem as I can’t reproduce this behaviour.

Can you download the run-time from the command line (wget, curl or whatever)?


#4

Unfortunatelly it doesn’t work.
I have also tried removing the folder .julia\registries


#5

Could you tell me the command line to do it, please?

I don’t know why I didn’t have any problem with Julia 0.7.


#6

I had another error after installing 1.02. I removed .julia completely and afterwards it worked.

Do you have additional info in C:\Users\med\.julia\packages\GR\k8wwU\deps\build.log?


#7

Up to now I’m also gettinh errors while installing other packages.

I’m going to uninstall everything and clean all folders and try again.


#8

Looking into c:\Users\username\.julia\packages\GR\k8wwU\deps\build.jl
it is trying to download
https://gr-framework.org/downloads/gr-0.35.0-Windows-x86_64.tar.gz
You can try this in your browser.
The julia command line used is (line 93 in build.jl)

file = "downloads/gr-0.35.0-Windows-x86_64.tar.gz"
download("https://gr-framework.org/downloads/gr-0.35.0-Windows-x86_64.tar.gz", file)

You can try this in the REPL. Remove "downloads/" from file, as the folder probably doesn’t exist in your current path.


#9

I’ll download all needed packages. How should I continue with the installation from that packages?
Anyway if I need to do it manually for every package it’s going to be very messy.


#10

It was meant to check if there is some system problem with downloading, not that you download the tar archives manually.


#11

I can download them well.

Can I force Julia to use another protocol?
It seems to be something related with access permisions even if I run it as administrator.


#12

I’ve tried everything you say but can’t solve the problem yet.


#13

In file
c:\Users\username\.julia\packages\GR\k8wwU\deps\build.jl
add line 96: @info("https://$url")
It should look like;

    try
      @info("https://$url")
      download("https://$url", file)
    catch

Run

using Pkg
Pkg.build("GR")

Show us the output of
c:\Users\username\.julia\packages\GR\k8wwU\deps\build.log

For me it shows:

[ Info: Downloading pre-compiled GR 0.35.0 Windows binary
[ Info: https://gr-framework.org/downloads/gr-0.35.0-Windows-x86_64.tar.gz

#14

The terminal shows:

and the file build.log on the same folder says:

The two first lines are Spanish (like my Windows) and mean

it’s not possible to start Windows PowerShell version 3. It’s not installed properly

I don’t know what are those Chinese symbols, Google Translate is not able to translate them.

I’m going to try to install Powershell 3 but anything I try it says it’s not compatible.


#15

In this case, the commands

file = "gr-0.35.0-Windows-x86_64.tar.gz"
download("https://gr-framework.org/downloads/gr-0.35.0-Windows-x86_64.tar.gz", file)

should also not work, I guess. You said, they are working?

You could try to install PowerShell 3:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34595

But I am only guessing here, it seems strange.


#16

OK, I’m sorry I was wrong.
What I tried before was to download the file from a web browser, and that works.
But if I run that lines from Julia I get this error:

it’s not possible to start version 3 of Windows PowerShell. It’s not installed properly.
ERROR: Downloading files requires Windows Management Framework 3.0 or later.
Stacktrace:
[1] error(::String) at .\error.jl:33
[2] download(::String, ::String) at .\download.jl:18
[3] top-level scope at none:0


#17

I’ve being trying for a while and finally got to install
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34595

The more I learn about computers the more complex everything seems, crosscompilations, dead libraries, missing packages… and even more problems on Linux.

Anyway, now it works.
Thank you.


#18

That’s soooo crazy! Looks like we should even use our own (static builtin) download mechanism in GR
Anyway, thanks for finding this out.


#19

Ref: https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/pull/25477 and https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/pull/26719.


#20

Finally I found my problem was general, not just for GR.
I’m going to change the thread title.
Isn’t it possible to install the packages precompiled?
