Notes on Elixir: Upgrading to/Installing v1.2 on Ubuntu
EDIT: Erlang solutions has
their Elixir package so you should be able to install/upgrade to v1.2 with
apt-get now. Thankyou Erlang Solutions.
Elixir recently got bumped up to version 1.2. Installing Elixir on
Ubuntu requires a package from Erlang Solutions which hasn’t yet been
updated. Therefore upgrading to v1.2 doesn’t yet work with
you have to compile from source, which I just learnt how to do with some help
from the elixir-lang IRC channel. Here’s how.
Open up your terminal,
git clone the Elixir repo, checkout v1.2, test & make:
git clone https://github.com/elixir-lang/elixir.git cd elixir/ git checkout v1.2 make clean test sudo make install
check the version:
elixir -v Erlang/OTP 18 [erts-7.2] [source] [64-bit] [smp:2:2] [async-threads:10] [kernel-poll:false] Elixir 1.2.0
And there you go. This is on 14.04.1 btw.
As I mentioned this was from the kind folk that help people like me on IRC, specifically Nicd- & Gazler, so, thankyou.
