I have built the Bitcoin source code, created my own genesis block and everything was working great! Now that I have changed the word bitcoin to GELF in some places of the program to suit my own software's name, I am running into plenty of issues with undefined references. I cannot seem to work out why I am having this undefined particular undefined reference when I run make. Here is my error output:

make[1]: Entering directory '/home/q/Desktop/GELF-master/src'
make[2]: Entering directory '/home/q/Desktop/GELF-master'
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/q/Desktop/GELF-master'
qt/qt_GELF_qt-bitcoin.o: In function `main':
/home/q/Desktop/GELF-master/src/qt/bitcoin.cpp:548: undefined reference to `qInitResources_bitcoin()'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:3701: recipe for target 'qt/GELF-qt' failed

make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/q/Desktop/GELF-master/src'
Makefile:9475: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I can't find anywhere in the code where this function is defined! Here is the line that is breaking:


What does this function do? It isn't anywhere to be seen in the developer reference. How can I resolve this error?

  • I can't remember how I fixed this but it might have been that I forgot the QT dependencies – Barney Chambers Jan 3 '18 at 15:27
