I’m sharing my problems getting started with Ocaml in the hope my feedback will help get things improving.
I’m very interested to learn Ocaml, but I always seem to encounter problems even to get started. This time, I’m running an a clean lxd container with ubuntu 18.04. I installed OPAM as described on its install page. But I encounter a problem at the
opam init step. This seems to be a problem that has been reported and fixable by editing an opam script.
If my experience is representative, it doesn’t make for a smooth onboarding of new users. Why is a new user confronted with errors when following the recommended installation steps?
If I’m doing something wrong, what’s the recommended way to start with Ocaml then?
