I tried installing babashka on Asahi Linux, it seemed to have went well, but I'm getting this error when trying to run bb. I'm pretty new to Arch, how do I handle this?

Fatal error: Failed to create the main Isolate. (code 8)

I had to change the sha256sum when installing v 0.8.0 on aarch64. From: 0d722412b57b281e905cfca6e4d231585715718a8531f2ca0e51b431803b805a To: 4ed5c9c4ef6a2b93537a42375c8fd36bf94a0680d40db27814ece9c21e5de43b

No worries! I'm very happy that you managed to figure it out and get it working for you :-) Thank you also for your kind comments about the maintainership. I hope you're finding babashka useful like I am! :-)

@dharrigan thanks for getting back to me. This was my own oversight - I've been distribution touring for the last month or so (some downtime) and had built my own bb and installed it in ~/.local/bin while I was messing with Silverblue like 3 linuxes ago. I didn't even check the path of the bb, let alone ask the linker, which is also shameful.

All this to say I'm sorry for the noise, and any related cognitive load I may have caused. It's not you, it's me!

Thanks for maintaining this package, and cheers.

Thank you for your comment. This is most strange, as yes, if it was a serious issue more people would be reporting it. I've installed a fresh version of the current arch distro (amd64) and installed babashka-bin. I was able to run the program without any issues.

[root@arch ~]# bb
Babashka v0.6.2 REPL.
Use :repl/quit or :repl/exit to quit the REPL.
Clojure rocks, Bash reaches.


Do you have base-devel installed? Also, what is the output of ldd?

[root@arch ~]# ldd /usr/sbin/bb (0x00007fff4d3e6000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fee5b3c8000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fee5b3ae000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fee5b38d000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fee5b386000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fee5b1ba000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fee5b076000)

On a freshly installed Arch system, updated, I am seeing this:

bb: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.34' not found (required by bb)

Seems like I shouldn't be the only one here seeing this, it's pretty serious :)

Thank you for your contribution :-) Pushed.

Sure, send me a patch file directly :-) My email should be deducible from the PKGBUILD :-)

crodjer commented on 2021-08-26 09:09 (UTC)

Could you add support for the aarch64? This will allow me to use it on my RPi Manjaro:
