I don't know anything about ocaml but these were just deprecation warnings that are treated as errors. Turns out, to disable warnings-as-errors behavior I had to modify the build command like this: dune build --profile release. Everything works now. Have a nice vacation.

thanks for the reply. I will be waiting. Have fun.

Hmm that doesn't look like anything I've seen before. I can't investigate right now since I'm on vacation without my computer, but I'll look into it when I'm back in a few days.

You're right, my bad. It builds fine after making sure I rebuild all relevant packages

Removed the comment to avoid misunderstanding

Since I have already received word (and even an out-of-date flag) from several people who seemed to believe that there must be a 0.11.1 release of sexplib0 because base also has one, I’d like to point out that as of now (2018-09-13) this is not the case. 0.11.0 is the most up-to-date release of sexplib0 that currently exists and to my knowledge that version is not incompatible with the current version of any other OCaml package or OCaml itself.

However, it is often necessary that OCaml packages with a common dependency be compiled against the same version of that dependency, even when the source code itself is not dependent on a particular version – this sort of dependency is not (yet) expressed in any of my OCaml packages as I do not currently know how exactly these dependencies manifest themselves. That said, whenever you come across such a case, recompiling affected packages will usually solve any problems.

Could you elaborate on why ocaml-base fails to build for you? For me the build works just fine using ocaml-sexplib0 0.11.0, and I re-checked just now. Have you checked whether your build environment is fully up-to-date? Sometimes it also happens that the system setup is messed up in some way, in that case building in a clean chroot can help, see
