Hey everything has usually been fine compiling from source until i updated to Ubuntu 17.10

I've configured using --disable-wallet and i'm using the most up to date master branch

Do make clean then rebuild.

If that doesn't work, reconfigure (./autogen.sh and ./configure) then make clean again, then make.

It is usually better to build a tagged version than from just off the top of master which may have additional changes.

More recently there were some dependancy changes[1].

In the /bitcoin directory you need to:

sudo apt install zlib1g-dev
git clean -fdx

Get on the master branch:

git checkout master

Pull down the current master including tags. Depending on how you are configured, how to do this will vary but could be as simple as git pull origin --tags

Then, you should definitely check out a tagged version. The current highest tagged version as of writing is v0.16.0 - you can check what tags exist with git tag - I usually do that this way into a branch:

git checkout v0.16.0 -b v016

Then, follow the specific build instructions in /bitcoin/doc/*.md. For example, Ubunto 17.04 is specifically supported in build-unix.md
