bitcoin-qt worked well on Ubuntu 18.04, after the upgrade to 18.10 it won't start anymore. Can't find any hints in log-files. Help appreciated! kr Heinz

  • I have the same problem, what happens when you run bitcoin-qt from the terminal? – igorgue Nov 7 '18 at 17:26
  • Nothing happens, no error or any other message turns up. – heinzm Nov 8 '18 at 16:46

This may be connected to the fact that Berkeley DB can't be built on Ubuntu 18.10:

Can’t build Berkley database on ubuntu 18.10. During call to make install getting error: definition of ‘int __atomic_compare_exchange(db_atomic_t*, atomic_value_t, atomic_value_t)’ ambiguates built-in declaration ‘bool __atomic_compare_exchange(long unsigned int, volatile void*, void*, void*, int, int)’
