I’m trying Julia 0.7 and things have been running smoothly so far, but I can’t get
SQLite.jl to install.
- I run
add SQLite (after hitting
] in the REPL) and I get no errors.
- Then I run
using SQLite and the precompilation fails with “Module Missings not found in current path.”
- I run
add Missings, again with no errors.
using Missings also returns no errors.
using SQLite fails with the same error.
I haven’t filed an issue on
SQLite.jl's GitHub, because I’m not sure
SQLite.jl is the problem and not me.
Thanks for any pointers.
The problem may be with the new package manager (Pkg3), or with
SQLite.jl (the Julia binding to SQLite),
but would not be with
Whoops, I meant to ask if there was an issue in
SQLite.jl, or if I was doing something wrong. I edited my question to make that distinction more clear, thanks. Now that you mention it, the issue might be in
Pkg3 but my gut feeling is that the error is in
SQLite.jl uses the
Missings packages, but doesn’t have it in the
REQUIRE file. In 0.6 this doesn’t cause a problem if you have
Missings installed, but in 0.7 the package system is stricter about enforcing it.
If they add
Missings to the
REQUIRE file and release a new version, it will get synced to the 0.7 registry and should work.
Thanks, I’ll file a pull request
Ok, I appended
Missings to the
REQUIRE file and previous error seems to be resolved. But now
Pkg3 is making the same complaint about
Compat. I appended
REQUIRE the same way I appended
Missings, but the error persists.
It is difficult to find documentation on this, so I’m just assuming that
REQUIRE was used before 0.7 and
Project.toml is the specification that will replace it. Maybe
Pkg3 is looking for
REQUIRE if it doesn’t see a
Project.toml before we move on to 1.0?
In any case: all the packages specified in either
Project.toml should be pulled in before the build phase begins, correct? If that assumption is correct, then there should be no reason why Julia should complain of a missing
- git clone my fork of
Missings and append
- open up a
Pkg3 REPL in the
result: the build.log file says “Module Compat not found in current path”

Do not follow anything that tells you how to set up Julia v0.4. That’s long retired.
