Cardano-cli 1.35.3 error on airgap while generating new node.cert

Hello all,

I ran into an error today on my airgap while trying to generate a new node.cert. I ran this step from the Coin Cashew guide on the airgap and it returned the following error: “cardano-cli: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file:”

Has anyone had this issue? Thank you in advance for any help on this.

You need to install libsecp256k1 on your air gapped machine.

Thank you!

Just be reminded that the method described in the article only works if the CPU architecture of your cold environment is the same as where you are copying libsecp256k1 from. If it’s not the same you need to build it yourself on the cold environment.

For that, see this manual: Installing the Glasgow Haskell Compiler and Cabal - CoinCashew starting from step 10
