Building xolominer



Build requirements:

 sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libgmp-dev

Berkeley db4.8 packages are available here:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev

Ubuntu precise has packages for libdb5.1-dev and libdb5.1++-dev, but using these will break binary wallet compatibility, and is not recommended.

Prior Boost <1.48 install libboost-all-dev

 sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

If you have trouble with Boost >= 1.48 dependencies, make sure these are installed as the libboost-all package does not include all needed dependencies:

 sudo apt-get install libboost-chrono1.48-dev libboost-filesystem1.48-dev libboost-system1.48-dev libboost-program-options1.48-dev libboost-thread1.48-dev

If you are using Boost 1.37, append -mt to the boost libraries in the makefile, use apt-cache search libboost to find out which version is available for your system.


 sudo apt-get install libminiupnpc-dev


 cd src/
 make -f makefile.unix
