I’ve just successfully compiled v5.5.1, but my usual ‘sudo make install’ is failing.
Here are the steps I follow (which historically have worked):
$ git clone https://github.com/zcash/zcash.git
$ cd zcash
$ git checkout v5.5.1
$ sudo make install
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop.
I know I can manually move the zcashd and zcash-cli binaries to /usr/local/bin but is there is a replacement for the formalised make install process?
While it’s not a part of the tested build procedure, I can’t think of any recent changes that should have caused this to stop working. I’ve opened an issue for this: `sudo make install` no longer working · Issue #6680 · zcash/zcash · GitHub
I had this issue when using the latest github clone, but when downloading the official release and compiling it worked fine.
Thanks. By “the latest github clone” do you mean the master branch?
Since I used “git checkout v5.5.1” would that put me on the offical release rather than master?
ah, maybe you mean the binaries? I’m trying to compile.
