Errors Joining TestNet

I keep getting an error thrown after running the compiling script when trying to start mining the testnet on an AWS EC2 instance. [this is the command I’m running: ./zcutil/ -j$(nproc)]

The error reads as such:

  • PREFIX=/home/ubuntu/zcash/depends/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/
  • make -j2 -C ./depends/ V=1 NO_QT=1
    ./zcutil/ line 36: make: command not found

I’ve recently upgraded my Ubuntu AWS to a large EC2 instance, and all the steps leading up to this one were successfully run for me. Anybody have any ideas on what’s going wrong? Advice is much appreciated.

Did you run this command (from the Public Alpha Guide)?

sudo apt-get install \
    build-essential pkg-config libgtest-dev libc6-dev m4 \
    g++-multilib autoconf libtool ncurses-dev unzip git python \
    zlib1g-dev wget bsdmainutils automake

make should be included in the build-essential package.

yeah I ran that, just never added the make. Surely that’s the culprit. Thanks for the help Daira
