Error in building Julia for Alpine Linux (ARM v7 32bits)

Hello folks

I try to built Julia for a custom Alpine linux armv7 on Docker. The container I use is this one (

After some time of compilation I get the following error

    In file included from /home/rgerzagu/work/julia/src/processor.cpp:844:

    make[1]: *** [Makefile:165: processor.o] Error 1
    make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

I understand that it is link to the fact that the Linux uses musl and not libc but not sure how I can handle that (it is possible though ?)

Thanks in advance

I don’t know much about this but there has been a recent post with successful build for ARM:

Maybe you find some help there.

I believe it’s fixed recently.


Thank you very much for the feedback.
I switch to the master branch, and the error disappears… which is great and I get a new one :point_up: !

Again, any clue on this would be greatly appreciated !
