What are the actual dogecoin client requirements? Their list doesn't seem to match exactly with what I have available, and I had to go back and forth with apt to even install what I have so far, and I'm by no means confidence that I have the correct dependencies

=================================

Build instructions
==================

Debian
------

First, make sure that the required packages for Qt4 development of your
distribution are installed, for Debian and Ubuntu these are:

::

    apt-get install qt4-qmake libqt4-dev build-essential libboost-dev libboost-system-dev \
        libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev \
        libssl-dev libdb++-dev libminiupnpc-dev

then execute the following:

thufir@dur:~/dogecoin$ sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake libqt4-dev build-essential libboost-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev  libssl-dev

  • have the correct...dependencies. You can edit it, Murch, also :) – Thufir Dec 20 '13 at 12:21

somehow or another, I got this to compile. it was some combination of:

install libboost1.48-all-dev libdb++-dev

then install without version number

then compile, compile fails

blocked packages

start over

install without version number

compile works

I don't remember, but it seemed random.

Much frustrating.

If I knew for a fact the correct dependencies, I would say so. but, the dependencies for the client and the digger (minerd) are, or might be different, and I was compiling both.

All I'm certain of is that the documentation wasn't correct.

Ubuntu 12.04LTS (probably didn't help, old version)
