Ubuntu 16.04 binaries of Zcash v1.0.2 available

The deb file of my binary release of Zcash v1.0.2 built on Ubuntu 16.04 (should run fine on 16.10 and Mint Cinnamon, too) is out, download is:
https://zcash.dl.mercerweiss.com/zcash-1.0.2-amd64.deb
To install, run sudo dpkg -i zcash-1.0.2-amd64.deb

If you have not previously installed zcash, you may need to run sudo apt-get install libgomp1 (the deb spec file from ZcashCo does not pull it in correctly as a dependency; if they haven't fixed that by the time the next release comes out I'll probably tweak the deb file build script to do so).

As always, I'm not a ZcashCo employee, and my donation info to support my ports and non-debian binary releases is in my profile and on my website at https://zcash.mercerweiss.com

Thank you for your support,

clicked on your link and got

ERROR
The request could not be satisfied.

Doh! I forgot to type the 's' in https, fixed, please try again!

yup works, ill give it a go :slight_smile: thanks

thanks, let me know if there are any installation issues (aside from the above noted libgomp1 dependency issue)!

Any difference / advantage using yours over the Deb/Jessie package at apt.z.cash ?

I didn't have to install libgomp using the Jessie version and I'm on 16.04 and it works since two updates (on 1.0.2 as well)

For 16.04 either should be fine....it's other Ubuntu version users who have
been having issues with the Debian Jessie built deb's, and those using
various Ubuntu derived distros, like Mint Cinnamon, that need my build.

Just out of curiousity, what are you doing differently to make up for the issues people have been having with Zcash on OSes derived from Ubuntu?

Some of them were just having issues getting the apt repository added, and the zcashco page doesn't have a clearly findable "click here to download the deb" link and "type this to install", which I do, so that may be more of the issue than anything else!

@voluntary I went and looked at the libraries that the gitian builds (deterministic build system, used by bitcoin and others, too) zcashco puts out are linked against, and they are the same as mine. The zcash website's instructions to add the apt repo are debian jessie specific, and that combined with no handy link to the deb (which is buried in the apt repo) are almost certainly the root of it.

For 16.04 either should be fine....it's other Ubuntu version users who have
been having issues with the Debian Jessie built deb's, and those using
various Ubuntu derived distros, like Mint Cinnamon, that need my build.

Good to know. Thanks for the info and for your help.

I'm getting the libgomp error. But I'm on ubuntu 14.04. ( libgomp1 is installed and apparently at version 4.8.)

Do you have a suggestion for stitching together a working 14.04 install?

Thanks much.

I'd try a source build of zcash 1.0.3 on ubuntu 14.04 and see what happens

Building 1.0.3 on Ubuntu 14.04 worked!

Thanks!
