I’m trying to understand why a friend cannot install unison, and it boiled down to a broken ocaml install. Here is what he did (on a Debian stable)
git clone https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml.git cd ocaml/ git branch git checkout remotes/origin/4.08 ./configure make world.opt -j sudo make install
but then when he launches ocaml he gets
OCaml version 4.08.2+dev0 File "command line", line 1: Error: Unbound module Stdlib
I’ve advised him to use opam, but I’m curious where such behavior could come from. Any idea?
