Error building node from source on Pi

After getting the new tag 1.26.1, when attempting to run ‘cabal build all’ I get the error:

cabal: Error parsing project file ~/cardano-node/cabal.project:96:"" (line 2, column 1):
unexpected ‘b’ expecting space or end of input.

I have tried doing the same with tag 1.25.1, but get the same error(on line 103, instead of 96).

Are you following a tutorial, and if so, which?

I have setup a few Pi4’s on 1.26.2 after scouring the online tutorials and the SPO course. I have never had an issue such as the one you report, but will try to assist! I also must admit that I installed 1.26.2.


P.S. It may be a good idea to post more of the cabal error log.


Compiled on Pi 32 bit OS, or 64?

Ubuntu 20.04.2 server 64-bit on a Pi4 8GB. I would not recommend a 32-bit system.
On Samsung EVO nvme drive via SSK enclosure and USB3.

I did not realize until now that your original post was about 1 month ago! Sorry about that!
