multichain build with libdb4.8 dependencies

+2 votes

I have tried to build multichain from sources using ubuntu 14.04 , but  libdb4.8-dev is no more avaiable.

I downloaded it from and compiled it, but launching multichaind I got an Error initializing wallet database environment that suggests I did something wrong. 

Moreover the multichain-util build launched in another ubuntu system, where the downloaded binaries work, fails as follows:

multichain-util: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Could you update your Linux Build Notes to build binaries working on most distro ?

For now I'm afraid we have Ubuntu 14.04 x64 build notes only, but we've tested them repeatedly on vanilla versions of the operation system, with success. Please try following the instructions exactly as provided – it sounds like you downloaded libdb from elsewhere. Please also note that this requires 64-bit Linux, not 32-bit.

What about shared objects?
