Stuck getting compiling rebar3 errors

phoenix
#1

Hey,

I’m trying to compile my project on a Ubuntu 16.04. Digital Ocean server, but I keep getting the error:

** (Mix) Could not compile dependency :certifi, "/root/.mix/rebar3 bare compile --paths 
"/root/curvita/_build/dev/lib/*/ebin"" command failed. You can recompile this dependency with "mix deps.compile 
certifi", update it with "mix deps.update certifi" or clean it with "mix deps.clean certifi"

Everything works fine on my local OSX machine.

Versions on both Ubuntu server and OSX are:
Elixir 1.4.5
Erlang 20

The full debug log is:

Erlang dependency doesn't compile with mix

What happens, when you run

make -v

on the Ubuntu server command line?

PS: I’m not familiar with Ubuntu - but I would think it peculiar if a *nix distribution didn’t have make - but weirder things have happened.

Seems

sudo apt-get install build-essential

is a common suggestion - but I would find out what exactly it installs first.

Package: build-essential (11.6ubuntu6)
Package: make (3.81-8.2ubuntu3)

**[quote=“peerreynders, post:2, topic:6857”]
sudo apt-get install build-essential
[/quote]

it worked!
Not sure how I missed it, but spent a couple hours trying to find a solution…

Thank you! :smiley:

Hello @dyyce, i’m currently experiencing similar problem using edeliver and distillery. The solution here seems not to work for me because make and build-essential is already installed.

Please i want to know how you were to access the log generated. I will also like to do that so i can have a pointer to issues affecting the deployment.

Ubuntu 16.10 on DigitalOcean
build-essential (12.1ubuntu2)
make (4.1)

Thank you

Have you tried any of these - what happens?

  • mix deps.compile certifi
  • mix deps.update certifi
  • mix deps.clean certifi

I can’t be certain but certifi is an erlang implementation of certifi and it requires rebar3 - which may not be installed. None of the Ubuntu packages seem to have it.

If rebar3 isn’t installed have a look at:

Thanks @peerreynders, the suggested mix commands without any luck.

I will install rebar3 on the server and see what happens next.

Thanks so much.

Thanks immensely @peerreynders and @NobbZ. I have installed using mix local.rebar.

The installation was successful and rebar3 now works on the server.

I tried rebar but said The program 'rebar' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt install rebar.

Do i need to install that separately or it doesn’t matter?

Thank you once again.

It is my understanding that rebar3 is entirely separate from rebar - so the question is whether your original compile works.

Thanks @peerreynders.

I have tried to recompile using MIX_ENV=prod mix edeliver build upgrade production --verbose --with=0.0.1 but got similar error

make: Entering directory '/home/deploy/ceecare/builds/deps/certifi/certs_spec'
escript ../certs_spec/gen_certifi_mod.escript

Compilation works without any errors locally.

I have also ran
MIX_ENV=prod mix deps.update certifi
MIX_ENV=prod mix deps.compile certifi
MIX_ENV=prod mix deps.clean certifi and mix deps.get certifi

Please what i’m mine doing wrong?

I’d try to see if there is any additional information by running

/home/deploy/.mix/rebar3 bare compile --paths "/home/deploy/ceecare/builds/_build/prod/lib/*/ebin"

directly from the command line. Looking at gen_certifi_mod.escript it simply reads

/home/deploy/ceecare/builds/deps/certifi/certs_spec/cacerts.pem

(PEM - Privacy Enhanced Mail) and writes out a processed version to

 /home/deploy/ceecare/builds/deps/certifi/src/certifi_cacerts.erl
  • does cacerts.pem exist and is it valid?
  • are there read permissions for cacerts.pem?
  • are there write permissions to /home/deploy/ceecare/builds/deps/certifi/src for certifi_cacerts.erl?

Thanks so much @peerreynders. Something strange is happening.

/home/deploy/.mix/rebar3 bare compile --paths "/home/deploy/ceecare/builds/_build/prod/lib/*/ebin"
```

but i got ``-bash: /home/deploy/bin/rebar3: No such file or directory``

But when i ran ``mix local.rebar``, **rebar3** was available as a bash command

Please what could be going on?

That call uses the system rebar3. Please use a fully qualified path.

Thanks NobbZ. Please i didn’t fully get what you mean by qualified path.

Can you share any hint regarding that?
