Help building julia


#1

So despite using julia for a while I’ve never built it from scatch, only used the binaries. I figure it’s about time.

I tried running following the windows instructions a few weeks ago, but I realized that I ran it make with -j 4 when I only have two cores. The make process failed.

Right now if I try to run make on a julia clone I get this:

C:\Users\hp\julia2\julia>make -j 2
Makefile:2: /Make.inc: No such file or directory

What do


#2

PS I’m on windows


#3

Oh wait nevermind I forgot I had to do this in cygwin. Also had to replace all /r/n with /n. Ok well I’ve started the process we’ll see how this goes.


#4

I’d recommend you follow the windows instructions precisely, to the letter, without deviation or re-ordering. Only way I’ve ever gotten it to build on Windows.
