I am trying to use bitcoin core in airgapped cold storage with tails installed on a usb.

first i downloaded the 0.15.1 release bin files into tails storage. i could run the bitcoin-qt just fine.


now i cloned the bitcoin core from github , added a commit from github. again i copied the 4 files - bitcoin-cli,bitcoin-qt,bitcoind,bitcoin-tx from bin folder into tails.

But now when i try to start bitcoin-qt from tails, I get the below error :

"error while loading shared libraries: libboost_system.so.1.63.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

shouldnt the bitcoin-qt file from bin folder work like an executable and run independently ?

please guide how to get the bitcoin-qt within the bin folder from latest github source to work on tails usb.

  • i had tried to build with make . even after building - i got this error. Commented Jan 24, 2018 at 11:35
