It looks like the HDF5 package is having trouble on Trusty Tahr on Travis CI, but it works with Precise Pangolin.
I just started a package that depends on the HDF5.jl. I pushed my branch, enabled Travis CI, and it failed at the build step:
INFO: Building HDF5
/usr/bin/sudo: 1: /usr/bin/sudo: [[: not found
================================[ ERROR: HDF5 ]=================================
LoadError: failed process: Process(`sudo apt-get install hdf5-tools`, ProcessExited(1)) 
while loading /home/travis/.julia/v0.6/HDF5/deps/build.jl, in expression starting on line 44
I took a look at some other packages that used the HDF5 package, and all of the ones that had clean builds were last built on Precise, so I added:
.travis.yml file, and this worked fine.
I notice that Travis CI only just started rolling out Trusty as a default yesterday.
Does anyone know why this is failing? Any further info?
Do you have a setting for
required ? What that looks like to me is that
/usr/bin/sudo in the VM your job got routed to was probably replaced by Travis with a bash script, but it’s trying to be executed by
/bin/sh which is dash on Ubuntu so doesn’t recognize the bashism
[[ which must be somewhere in an if statement in the (hypothetical) bash script. Sounds like a bug that should be reported on Travis CI’s issue tracker.
As a workaround in order to avoid having BinDeps need to call
sudo apt-get install hdf5-tools, you can try using the apt packages plugin
Thanks @tkelman! When I use
sudo: required in my
.travis.yml file, it works, without having to specify the distribution (and it defaults to
Per your advice, I wrote this up in Travis issue here:
I think I might not be the only Julia user facing this issue though, so perhaps this will be a useful thread for other users’ searches.
Yes, I have had the same problems with HDF5 on Travis. Thanks for writing this.
