Recurrent precompilations

Hello dear all,

Since yesterday after some problems in my session, I am trying to resolve a very annoying problem. Each time I want to run a program, Atom (REPL) tells me:

prerecompiling Atom (sometimes)
precompiling DifferentialEquations


The following package names could not be resolved:
 * PGFPLotsX (not found in project, manifest or registry)

Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.

I had a look on this discussion but I don’t find the correct way to resolve my problem.

Any idea?

I must had that if I do:

julia > using Plots (or PGFPlotsX)

There is no problem

If I do:

julia > using DifferentialEquations

I get:

Julia has exited.
Press Enter to start a new session.

in such cases i tend to clean (rm) my ~/.julia completely and recompile everything.

Thank you MatFi for your replys. :slightly_smiling_face:

Earlier I applied your solution but there was still something unstable.
Finally I uninstalled/resinstalled Atom since it called an old Julia version (1.0).After a new install, Atom required to “readjust” some links (however without telling more details). Just click “yes” and … everything came back OK.
