Julia `make` Problem

question

#1

I compiled Julia many times without difficulties, but my latest attempt on a new HPC node failed: I believe this happens at the very end of the make process:

    LINK usr/lib/libjulia.so.0.6.4
    CC ui/repl.o
    LINK usr/bin/julia
    JULIA usr/lib/julia/inference.ji
A method error occurred before the base MethodError type was defined. Aborting...

I’m afraid I have no clue to even start fixing this and would appreciate any help!

A few more comments:

  • this is Julia v0.6.4 (I haven’t yet had time to update a fairly large code base)
  • The Linux version is (note this is not the GCC I’m using for compiling Julia)
Linux version 3.10.0-957.5.1.el7.x86_64 (mockbuild@kbuilder.bsys.centos.org) (gcc version 4.8.\

  • GCC version:
bash-4.2$ gcc --version
