Fail Testing Mosek 8 -> ERROR: LoadError: ReadOnlyMemoryError()



Testing Mosek on Windows with Julia v0.6.2 - 32 bits.

I am trying to run this code:

using JuMP
using Mosek
#using SCS

model = Model(solver=MosekSolver())
#model = Model(solver=SCSSolver())

@variable(model, Q[1:2, 1:2], SDP)
@constraint(model, Q[1,1] - 1 == Q[2,2])
@variable(model, objective)
T = [1 Q[1,1]; Q[1,1] objective]
@SDconstraint(model, T >= 0)
@objective(model, :Min, objective)

#println("Objective value: ", getobjectivevalue(model))
#println("Q: ", getvalue(Q))

@show getvalue(Q)
@show getobjectivevalue(model)
@show getvalue(objective)
@assert getobjectivevalue(model) == getvalue(objective)

However, I could get that:

I ran my code with SCS solver and I could get the solution but the Mosek does not working.
Please, I need some help.



  1. format your code with backticks,
  2. provide a self-contained minimal working example.


Thank you!
I am giving more information.


Just to let people know. This question is crossposted at the repo, where the MOSEK guys are trying to sort it out:


I too encountered a mysterious ReadOnlyMemoryError() in 0.6.2 under linux. Here is the discourse link:

The issue is not yet resolved.


I’ve had that error once or twice when using readcsv / readdlm on kaggle’s kernels platform, passing though an IOBuffer with default settings (readable=true / writeable = true / etc) seemed to help. /readonly? fix for readdlm
Reading a file probably shouldn’t need write access though.

-Added: had a little dig and there’s a fill(**readonly?** stringbuff, 1,0 ) hiding in DLMStore() -base/dataFmt.jl line 211 that might err if it passes a reference?
