Frequently failure with adding packages

question
package

#1

For example, when I want to add the IJulia package on my Mac OS julia 0.5 version, it says:

julia> using IJulia
INFO: Precompiling module IJulia.
ERROR: LoadError: ZMQ not properly installed. Please run Pkg.build("ZMQ")
 in error(::String) at ./error.jl:21
...

when I type Pkg.build("ZMQ"), it says:

julia> Pkg.build("ZMQ")

================================[ BUILD ERRORS ]================================

WARNING: ZMQ had build errors.

 - packages with build errors remain installed in /Users/apple/.julia/v0.5
 - build the package(s) and all dependencies with `Pkg.build("ZMQ")`
 - build a single package by running its `deps/build.jl` script

Building Cairo and other packages are quite similar. This is really a bad experience, and I don’t know what to do besides post it somewhere. Is there anyone who can tell me that why this happens? I don’t think it is the problem of my Mac OS computer, for things are similar on another windows.

It looks like you’re encountering https://github.com/JuliaPackaging/Homebrew.jl/issues/169

Do any of the suggestions from there help?


#3

It did help. Thanks for that.
However, other packages which I added before didn’t seem to work. I am trying to build them one by one.
