## What dependencies are needed to build the dogecoin client?

2

What are the actual dogecoin client requirements? Their list doesn't seem to match exactly with what I have available, and I had to go back and forth with apt to even install what I have so far, and I'm by no means confidence that I have the correct dependencies

thufir@dur:~/dogecoin$head doc/readme-qt.rst -n 20Dogecoin-Qt: Qt4 GUI for Dogecoin ================================= Build instructions ================== Debian ------ First, make sure that the required packages for Qt4 development of your distribution are installed, for Debian and Ubuntu these are: :: apt-get install qt4-qmake libqt4-dev build-essential libboost-dev libboost-system-dev \ libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev \ libssl-dev libdb++-dev libminiupnpc-dev then execute the following: thufir@dur:~/dogecoin$ sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake libqt4-dev build-essential libboost-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev  libssl-dev

You seem to be missing a word in your introductory sentence in "I'm by no means confidence that I <?> the dependencies" – Murch – 2013-12-20T11:43:28.057

have the correct...dependencies. You can edit it, Murch, also :) – Thufir – 2013-12-20T12:21:23.130

somehow or another, I got this to compile. it was some combination of:

install libboost1.48-all-dev libdb++-dev

then install without version number

then compile, compile fails

blocked packages

start over

install without version number

compile works

I don't remember, but it seemed random.

Much frustrating.

If I knew for a fact the correct dependencies, I would say so. but, the dependencies for the client and the digger (minerd) are, or might be different, and I was compiling both.

All I'm certain of is that the documentation wasn't correct.
