Error with Pkg with using statement in startup.jl


#1

I have a using statement in my startup.jl file (using OhMyREPL), and upon building packages, I get the following warnings

Obviously, OhMyREPL is properly installed and otherwise works fine.

What is the problem?


Error building packages when startup file is used (v1.0)
#2

Possibly related, I started getting a

┌ Warning: Dependency graph not a DAG, linearizing anyway
└ @ Pkg.Operations C:\cygwin\home\Administrator\buildbot\worker\package_win64\build\usr\share\julia\stdlib\v0.7\Pkg\src\Operations.jl:985

warning, but that warning stays even after removing the using statement from startup.jl.


#3

Looks like https://github.com/JuliaLang/Pkg.jl/commit/40d7f27f2ff08ec466df536f267129a9f5e950b4#diff-920ed338dcbd9d62489c6d12dc2fbb18 got lost. You should be able to work around it by starting julia with julia --startup-file=no for now.


#4

I am not sure what the problem is but I have found the following two possible workarounds.

A) Just comment out the “using OhMyREPL” in the start-up file, till this issue is sorted out:

# using OhMyREPL

B) Try the following code, which lets the OhMyREPL package to run in REPL but bypasses it when using Pkg package. (h/t @iht at https://github.com/iht for this code at https://github.com/KristofferC/OhMyREPL.jl/issues/68#issuecomment-414714989)

try
    @eval using OhMyREPL
catch err
    @warn "Could not load OhMyREPL."
end

#5

@long-short , I tried your suggestion B) with Julia v1.0 on MacBook Pro, but it still failed with the following error:

(v1.0) pkg> build MbedTLS

What is in your startup.jl?


#7

@kristoffer.carlsson, I’m sorry for the last posting. I just realized that the reason I got that error was that in my startup.jl, there’s another line using Statistics . I tried the same, i.e., suggestion B), then it worked! However, I’m very curious, I have another line using LinearAlgebra . For this package, I don’t need to do the same trick as OhMyREPL and Statistics. Why? Just in case, that part of my current startup.jl is:

try
    @eval using OhMyREPL
catch err
    @warn "Could not load OhMyREPL."
end

@eval using LinearAlgebra

try
    @eval using Statistics
catch err
    @warn "Could not load Statistics."
end

#8

Probably because the package you build happen to have LinearAlgebra as one of the dependencies.
