Sorry for asking the same question twice, but I didn’t manage to find a solution.
I want to check out a copy of AbstractAlgebra.jl to cut it down to a minimal example for a bug report for julia-1.2.0rc2.
Here are the steps I am undertaking:
- cd ~/.julia/environments/v1.2/dev
- rm -rf AbstractAlgebra
- cd ~/julia-1.2.0rc2/bin
- ] add AbstractAlgebra
- ] develop --local AbstractAlgebra
- Confirm that it has created the directory ~/.julia/environments/v1.2/dev/AbstractAlgebra
- using Pkg
Here is the output of step 5:
(v1.2) pkg> add AbstractAlgebra Updating registry at `~/.julia/registries/General` Updating git-repo `https://github.com/JuliaRegistries/General.git` Resolving package versions... Updating `~/.julia/environments/v1.2/Project.toml` [c3fe647b] ↓ AbstractAlgebra v0.5.2+ [`dev/AbstractAlgebra`] ⇒ v0.5.2 Updating `~/.julia/environments/v1.2/Manifest.toml` [c3fe647b] ↓ AbstractAlgebra v0.5.2+ [`dev/AbstractAlgebra`] ⇒ v0.5.2
Here is the output of step 6:
(v1.2) pkg> develop --local AbstractAlgebra Updating git-repo `https://github.com/Nemocas/AbstractAlgebra.jl.git` Resolving package versions... Updating `~/.julia/environments/v1.2/Project.toml` [c3fe647b] ↑ AbstractAlgebra v0.5.2 ⇒ v0.5.2+ [`dev/AbstractAlgebra`] Updating `~/.julia/environments/v1.2/Manifest.toml` [c3fe647b] ↑ AbstractAlgebra v0.5.2 ⇒ v0.5.2+ [`dev/AbstractAlgebra`]
Here is the output of step 9:
julia> Pkg.test("AbstractAlgebra") Testing AbstractAlgebra Resolving package versions... Status `/tmp/jl_kl9fyn/Manifest.toml` [c3fe647b] AbstractAlgebra v0.5.2+ [`~/.julia/environments/v1.2/dev/AbstractAlgebra`] [2a0f44e3] Base64 [`@stdlib/Base64`] [8ba89e20] Distributed [`@stdlib/Distributed`] [b77e0a4c] InteractiveUtils [`@stdlib/InteractiveUtils`] [8f399da3] Libdl [`@stdlib/Libdl`] [37e2e46d] LinearAlgebra [`@stdlib/LinearAlgebra`] [56ddb016] Logging [`@stdlib/Logging`] [d6f4376e] Markdown [`@stdlib/Markdown`] [9a3f8284] Random [`@stdlib/Random`] [9e88b42a] Serialization [`@stdlib/Serialization`] [6462fe0b] Sockets [`@stdlib/Sockets`] [2f01184e] SparseArrays [`@stdlib/SparseArrays`] [8dfed614] Test [`@stdlib/Test`] Welcome to AbstractAlgebra version 0.1.2-dev AbstractAlgebra comes with absolutely no warranty whatsoever
Note that this is the wrong version of AbstractAlgebra. We are up to 0.5.2, we don’t print banners any more, and I can confirm 100% that the tests are not the tests for 0.5.2. For example all the Module tests are missing.
What am I doing wrong?
How can I debug this?
To my knowledge I do not have AbstractAlgebra 0.1.2 installed anywhere.
I cannot just nuke my .julia directory. I am developing many packages and I cannot risk my only remaining working development environment being wrecked as I need it to do my job, not to mention that I am in the middle of working on many projects.
I have read the package documentation many times, but when I execute the commands there, I do not get the results that is suggests I should get, and I am totally confused about how the whole package system should work. (My fault entirely, I am sure it works for everyone else just fine and that I’m missing some prerequisite knowledge. But I have never used a similar system, so I am a total noob. I’m just explaining that this is a problem that neither I nor my colleagues have been able to solve and I really require some help after trying to sort it out ourselves.)
