error while loading shared libraries:

I did upgrade my Debian linux box to…

Distributor ID: Debian Description: Debian GNU/Linux 8.2 (jessie) Release: 8.2 Codename: jessie

When I run apt-get install libbooost_system.1.49 it will not allow it since it is deprecated.

Any thoughts?



You can compile libboost 1.49, download the source from here: Boost 1.49 uncompress and follow INSTALL file instructions, if you already have dependencies this should something as:

  • ./configure
  • make
  • sudo make install

Then you can verify if that library requirement is satisfy by using ldd /usr/bin/bitcoin-cli assuming that you have it globally installed in that location.
