I am running bitcoind from the command line (--without-gui) and my system apparently does not have the correct Berkley DB version (4.8+). Therefore, I chose to run the program without the wallet enabled (--disable-wallet) so that Berkley DB would not be required.
What I am now wondering however, is if I sync the entire blockchain (300GB+) and at some point want to --enable-wallet, will I be able to do so without any incompatibility issues?
Furthermore, how can I update to the correct version of Berkley DB (4.8+) so that I can --enable-wallet. I already ran the script
$home/bitcoin/contrib/install_db4.sh which did not alleviate the error when running
./configure to test the system for compatibility. I still get the error that the current version is incompatible.
