i just followed the instructions from degreesof zero built, made and installed bitcoind, but bitcoind was missing from the location above. What's wrong with the procedures please? thanks

  • Your problem is probably related to xabbix's answer. If not, you could try running 'which bitcoind' and if Linux knows where it is, it will tell you.

If you've followed the first link, you will also need to sudo make install, this will take the relevant binary files and place them in the /usr/local/bin directory.


I think the latest install puts bitcoind and bitcoin-cli in /usr/bin (not in /usr/local/bin).
