I’m having trouble building a Cardano node on my Ubuntu machine following this guide
After following all the steps from the guide i’m stuck at buildig the Cardano node with:
cabal build cardano-node cardano-cli
Here is the
Full terminal code
Below a part of the terminal code where the problem occurs:

Cardano node 1.35.4
I tried to install a lower version for Haskell HsOpenSSL (version 0.11.7.2 instead of 0.11.7.3) after reading this post from pullanswer =>
but with no luck.
Have you done a fresh cabal update before trying to build again after installing the lower HsOpenSSL.
I also read somewhere that you can/should manually update the cabal.project before you build to be HsOpenSSL == 0.11.7.2
I tried to change the HsOpenSSL version but ran into the following:
cardano1234@cardano1234-VirtualBox:~/git$ cabal install Cabal HsOpenSSL-0.11.7.2
Build profile: -w ghc-8.10.7 -O1
In order, the following will be built (use -v for more details):

The command "cabal install [TARGETS]" doesn't expose libraries.
* You might have wanted to add them as dependencies to your package. In this
case add "Cabal, Cabal, HsOpenSSL" to the build-depends field(s) of your
package's .cabal file.
* You might have wanted to add them to a GHC environment. In this case use
"cabal install --lib Cabal Cabal HsOpenSSL". The "--lib" flag is provisional:
see https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/6481 for more information.
Not sure how to force the version upon Cabal.
I’ve often found it is good to start again with builds sometimes, as you can often end up with orphaned, or incorrect build projects.
Work through the steps here
Making sure you’ve got a clean/new folder for cardano-node2 (or whatever you want to call it). The cabal update command later on will update cabal for your build.
I would make sure you check the cabal.project file before you move to the actually build command.
U can try my guide but before make a fresh installation on server
Have you thinking to run a Cardano POOL but but you don’t have advanced knowledge in linux? No problem! Today I will show you how to setup a Cardano POOL using CNTOOLS in just a few minutes/steps:
But first, few recommendations for security of the nodes (should be applied on all nodes):
create an username/password, change the default ssh connections and deactivate ssh for root user
sudo adduser example
where example is your new user ; here is recomanded to use a STRONG…
I’ve done hours of troubleshooting on this, together with someone from IOG. Change
, HSOpenSSL >= 0.11.7.2
, HsOpenSSL == 0.11.7.2
in the cabal.project file if you have this problem.
pay attention to the capital S in the original line and non-capital s in the changed line.
It will work after that.
Thanks all for the help.
The solution from
@georgem1976 solved my problem.
Nice tutorial @Alexd1985.
