Need RaspberryPi - ARM Julia package testers


#21

Viral,

Thank you for all your work on this. Getting Julia running on an RPi really opens up the possibility for wider deployment of the language.


#22

Also, do see the JuliaBerry organization:

#23

Julia in Raspbian now. You can see Julia in here:

And also do see Ben Nuttall’s tweet:

And the screenshots he posted:

How RPi specific this package is? Would it be worth to try it on e.g. OrangePi?


#25

It’ll probably work but will have worse performance than the generic Linux binary.


#26

I installed Julia via apt on two Raspberry Pi 3’s running fully update Jessie distros. On one it ran without problem and on the other I get a segmentation fault.

What can I do to find the problem?


#27

Please open an issue, including the output that you get.

It would also be useful if you can run it with a debugger: see these instructions (I believe julia-debug should be included in the package)


#28

I finally got around to trying it but couldn’t find julia-debug on the Raspberry Pi.


#29

I might have removed it to keep the binary small. It is there in the stock
binaries.

For 0.6 we could bring back julia-debug if deemed important.
