Issue Installing Cardano Node

Hey Guys!

I’m trying to install a Cardano node and running into an issue. I’ve been unable to find anything about this online. I’ve made sure I have all of the dependencies installed and am running the appropriate versions of cabal/GHC so a bit stumped. If you have any thoughts, that would be much appreciated. Error below:

src/Ledger/Update.hs:1:1: error:
Exception when trying to run compile-time code:
/home/will/src/cardano-node/dist-newstyle/tmp/src-84326/cs-ledger- openBinaryFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)
Code: mkGoblinGens
[“UPREGFailure_DoesNotVerify”, “UPREGFailure_NotGenesisDelegate”,
“UPREGFailure_UPVFailure_PVChangedInSVUpdate”, …]

cabal: Failed to build cs-ledger- (which is required by exe:chairman
from cardano-node-1.9.3, exe:cardano-node from cardano-node-1.9.3 and others).
See the build log above for details.



what is your os and hw?

I’m on a Surface Pro 6. I have the most recent surface kernel installed.

Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
Kernel: Linux 5.11.11-surface
Architecture: x86-64


What is your Ram and swap sizes. I had some similar strange errors on a 4 GB ram 0 swap machine.

I have 8GB ram and 2GB swap.

You could try to run the Docker image like this

$ docker run --detach \
    --name=relay \
    -p 3001:3001 \
    -v node-data:/opt/cardano/data \
    nessusio/cardano-node run    

Thanks Tom. I couldn’t get docker to run work right off the bat, but I see some good resources and will try this route when I have some time.

I am also having some issues…
Daedalus was a go but for some reason when using Kleopatra, I cannot get the “Lookup on Server” to load. Nothing loads. I checked my firewall but it doesn’t seem to be connecting to the server. It eventually times out during the search… any advice?
