I am trying to build bitcoin core from source using Ubuntu 17.04 with this guide: http://bitzuma.com/posts/compile-bitcoin-core-from-source-on-ubuntu/

The build fails when I use sudo make.

The Error is:

I think the problem is in the configure step, but I could be wrong:

I have tried running the below command both with and without the --disable-wallet option. It seems to get further with this option, but still crashes with the same error:

$ ./configure CPPFLAGS="-I${BDB_PREFIX}/include/ -O2" LDFLAGS="-L${BDB_PREFIX}/lib/" --with-gui

Why is it failing here? Is there any work around?

Those instructions appear to be several years old, notwithstanding the date at the top of the page. They are very obsolete and not helpful for the present day.

  • It's based on Ubuntu 14.04, which dates from 2014.

  • It is telling you to build version 0.10.0 of Bitcoin Core, which was released in February 2015 and won't work well with the current network. Moreover it seems to be incompatible with modern compilers, hence the errors you are seeing.

  • They want you to build Berkeley DB from source, which is pointless. There are perfectly good packages in Ubuntu.

You can find up-to-date build instructions in the source tree at doc/build-unix.md, or read them online at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/doc/build-unix.md. However before doing anything else you'll want to git checkout v0.15.1 so that you are looking at the current version (as of this writing).

(By the way you shouldn't need to sudo make. It's safer to do that as an unprivileged user.)

The Bitcoin core build documentation is a bit convoluted. The easiest way to build is to use the provided dependency make script rather than trying to install the dependencies individually.

In your case it looks like maybe you've got the wrong version of Boost or maybe your gcc version is too old. Either way I'd recommend starting from scratch and use these steps:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake pkg-config libssl-dev libevent-dev bsdmainutils python3 curl
$ sudo git clone https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.git
$ chown -R your_username:your_username /usr/src/bitcoin
$ cd bitcoin/depends
$ make
$ cd ..
$ ./autogen.sh
$ CONFIG_SITE=$PWD/depends/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/share/config.site ./configure --prefix=/
$ make
$ sudo make install
  • Please update in 2018, so that it works for new comer. – YumYumYum Apr 1 '18 at 21:37
