I’m not new to Julia, but I’m certainly new to running it in a Linux cluster. I’m a neuroscientist and recently needed to run some computation heavy simulations written in Julia in my school’s Linux cluster. The cluster didn’t have Julia available as a module, so I had to download the 64-bit Linux binary to my personal environment in the cluster.
From Julia’s command line interface in the cluster, I attempted to run
To my surprise, there was no print output from Julia as there usually is; I left Julia running for about an hour, and when I returned, there was still no print output and I was prevented from executing any further commands, indicating that Pkg.add was still running.
I thought perhaps this was a fluke, so I logged out of the cluster and logged back in and attempted to run
and got the same result as before. I have made several more attempts, each with the same result: Julia appears to just hang, not actually carrying out the procedure (or at least not carrying it out in an appropriate time span).
Is there something I’m missing? Are there special requirements for downloading packages in clusters or to binary distributions of Julia? A search on Google, this forum, and on GitHub haven’t revealed any possible troubleshooting tips. Any help is much appreciated.
