Local Hail Install issues

Hi there, I was in Boulder last week and am excited to use Hail more. I’m having issues installing it locally, namely:

VIPBGB1L01130AB:hail jalexander4$ ./gradlew shadowJar
:compileJava UP-TO-DATE
:nativeLib
(cd libsimdpp-2.0-rc2 && cmake .)
/bin/sh: cmake: command not found
make: *** [libsimdpp] Error 127
:nativeLib FAILED

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong:
    Execution failed for task ‘:nativeLib’.

Process ‘command ‘make’’ finished with non-zero exit value 2

  • Try:
    Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.

BUILD FAILED

Total time: 9.439 secs

I have Java 8 (build 1.8.0_121-b13) and here is c++ -v

I’m new to this, so it may be something very simple.

Hi Jeff, glad you liked the workshop! The error says you’re missing a C compiler, e.g. cmake. Have you installed this as described in Getting Started?

Thanks for getting back to me. I have installed both XCode and CMake (just downloaded and installed, not using Homebrew).

Do you need to add it to your path? What do you get from cmake --version?

Yup, just needed to add cmake to the path. Thanks!

Glad things are working!

We’ll be putting the practicals from Boulder onto the website in the next week or two, once we can pull out the IBG-specific jargon/references. We’re also going to start posting precompiled Hail binaries very soon – lots of people have had issues compiling, for lots of reasons!

I’m having the same issue as above, cmake is installed and in the path

Hi James,
Sorry to leave this hanging for a few days!

I’m happy to report that we’re now compiling prebuilt distributions of Hail. These are publicly available in our Google bucket (gs://hail-common/distributions).

There are now links to the latest versions of Hail 0.1 for Spark 2.0.2 and 2.1.0 in our getting started page. Downloading one of these (corresponding to the version of Spark that you have) will let you run Hail without needing to worry about the compile dependencies yourself. Please let us know if there are parts of the updated page that aren’t clear!

I second tim’s approach of using a pre-compiled binary. However, if you really must compile from source, it seems that whichever user is executing ./gradlew shadowJar does not own the quoted directory. I would check that

whoami

returns the same user as

ls -l /home/jpriest/priest_apps/hail/src/main/c/libsimdpp-2.0-rc2/ | awk '{print $3}'

before executing gradle.

Hi tpoterba
Are the precompiled binaries for Spark 2.1.0.2 on the website?

We provide distributions for Spark 2.0.2 and Spark 2.1.0.

The latest links are embedded here:
