i was confused before, im about 50X more confused now. I cannot find a terminal launchable file anywhere within creepminer files.
This is my first linux experience and im really struggling here.
@viking assuming you got the source from the mirror of the github repo, you want the binary release.
get the 1.5.2 release tarball off
should be compiled and have a shell script to run
thanks for that, i have a .sh file now.
when i run it in console, i get:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.22' not found (required by ./creepMiner)
any idea what GLIBCXX is?
@viking hrrmmm what version ubuntu you running?
i am running xubuntu 16.04.2
@viking sorry about delay, doing some googling about this cause don't have a ubuntu install laying around right now.
basically the binary is linked to a version of glibc++ which is not on your system. there should be a way to get it installed using apt-get on 16.04.
looking for a good link to address this
it is that or compile from the miner from source so it is linked to a version that is on the system
I tried to sudo apt-get install glibc++
It downloaded for a solid 5 mins.
I did the following for good measure:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
I still get the same messages.
I don't know how to compile so the second option is a problem. I feel like my brain is melting.
hrmmm don't know how much i am helping at this point ( you might ask @Creepsky ) but i believe you need gcc6
you could try https://www.howtoinstall.co/en/ubuntu/xenial/gcc-6-base
personally i would compile though it involves getting compilers to do so
sudo apt-get install build-essential
in the repo directory:
and binaries should be in the bin directory and run.sh should work there
Okay thanks a lot for your help, I am closer to getting this sorted than before at least.
last thing, creepsky seems to reply on github promptly so you might trying opening an issue there if you don't get it sorted out
