Install Cardano node in CentOS 7

Hi everyone!

I’m having problems compiling the cardano node in CentOS 7, by following the instruction on

When I reach to the point of compiling with “cabal build all”, at the moment that the ghc is executed I’m getting this errors:

/usr/local/lib/ghc-8.6.5/bin/ghc: /lib64/ no version information available (required by /usr/local/lib/ghc-8.6.5/bin/…/haskeline-
/usr/local/lib/ghc-8.6.5/bin/ghc: /lib64/ no version information available (required by /usr/local/lib/ghc-8.6.5/bin/…/ghc-8.6.5/
/usr/local/lib/ghc-8.6.5/bin/ghc: /lib64/ no version information available (required by /usr/local/lib/ghc-8.6.5/bin/…/terminfo-

But I’ve ncurses installed in /lib64
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Aug 12 19:42 /lib64/ ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 May 29 2018 /lib64/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 174576 Sep 6 2017 /lib64/

Any suggestons of what I missed?


I’ve been trying to install (the ITN) in Centos too, but it didn’t work either. I haven’t try the mainnet version, but, it much easier to install in Ubuntu, and you can have a lot of support too, because a lot of people install in Ubuntu.

I didn’t try it on Centos 7 but my stakepool is running on Centos 8.

Really? Wow that is awesome…

Less updates and for servers more reliable.

I know I’m using both Centos 7 and 8 for my job.

That’s why I want CentOS, but I’m a third world citizen, and my cheap cloud provider don’t have CenOS 8 as an option.

Can’t you install from an iso file?

No, but I’ll consider migrating to another provider if my stake pool becames profitable or at least I can get even in some way. I really liked the project and I want to support it #thirdWorldStyle ejeje
