  • Failed to Load KX Insights Core Library error when using pykx in q

    Posted by user931206 on April 23, 2024 at 8:56 am

    I have installed pykx

    it seems to work, but I get this error when I load the pykx.q library

    After I run

    \l pykx.q

    I get this warning message :

    WARN: Failed to load KX Insights Core library 'kurl.q'.

    WARN: Failed to load KX Insights Core library 'objstor.q'.

    WARN: Failed to load KX Insights Core library 'qlog.q'.

    WARN: Failed to load KX Insights Core library 's.k'.

    Where can I find the KX Insights Core Library?

    Hey,

    The Insights Core Libraries are shipped with PyKX directly but should only be executable within a Linux x86 environment. If you set

    export PYKX_DEBUG_INSIGHTS_LIBRARIES=true

    that will provide information on exactly why the library wasn’t loaded. If possible providing the output (redacted if needed) of

    python -c "import pykx;print(pykx.util.debug_environment())"

    will provide us with information which should help us debug further.

    It’s a dev container.

      Thanks. With the environment variable set (I see you have set it in the process) could you try run the \l pykx.q and return what the output in the q session is now?

          Apologies, I don’t see the information I’m expecting. Being more explicit could you start your q session running the following and provide the full output.

          PYKX_DEBUG_INSIGHTS_LIBRARIES=true q pykx.q

    Did you download q from this link?

    https://kx.com/kdb-personal-edition-download/

    It does not include the cloud libraries.

    Instead the insights edition is needed to have those libraries:

      we have an enterprise licence and I am … fairly sure we should have the insights core installed

        Run ‘ls’ on ‘/q’ in the container to see what files are there. The load error output suggests the cloud libraries are not there.
