Vibe-D Installation on Ubuntu x86 20.04
November 18
Hello Everyone,

I am having trouble deploying vibe-d on my Ubuntu instance on AWS. I tried following additional Linux instructions in [1] with no luck.

My hello world project which I create with "dub init <name> -t vibe.d" gets stuck in the command line with the following message: eventcore 0.9.10: building configuration "epoll"...

Then it just gets stuck.

Has anyone recently experienced this? I was planning to ask on rejected software forums but they still seem to be down.

Best,
S

Are you building locally, or on Amazon (say EC2 instance)? Also, are you mentioned "x86" in the title, but you are on a 64-bit OS, right?
Have you checked the memory usage during this build step? It's likely the machine you're building on doesn't have sufficient RAM and maybe swapping (which could cause compiling to be orders of magnitude slower.

I am building on EC2! I'll check the RAM usage etc ... tomorrow. That might be it. Thanks.

Ramping up the memory limit of the instance to 8 gig solved it for me. Thanks so much for this tip.

I have a follow up on this and I didn't want to create another topic for it. The simple hello world app I build with vibe-d does not seem to work on the second compile+execution. It throws a failed to listen on port/address error on console. I think it is the same error as in [1]. Although the commit in [2] hasn't seemed to fixed it for me. I appreciate any pointers.

I was also thinking about writing a tutorial about deployment on EC2 Ubuntu 20.04. Does anyone think that would be helpful?

Best,
Selim

This is a known issue,  you have to set VibeHighEventPriority version for eg if you are using dub with json format add:

"versions": ["VibeHighEventPriority"]
