Ubuntu PPA (Personal Package Archive)¶
NOTE - At the time of writing (31st August 2016), the PPAs are broken, following significant repository reorganizations and a change of automation process. We have not hooked the PPA generation steps back together yet, though this will happen in the very near future. In the meantime, please follow the Building for Linux instructions.
We have set up PPA instances for the following Ubuntu versions:
- Ubuntu Trusty Tahr (14.04)
- Ubuntu Utopic Unicorn (14.10)
- Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (15.04)
- Ubuntu Wily Werewolf (15.10)
- Ubuntu Xenial Xerus (16.04)
We only support 64-bit builds. It may be possible to get the client working for Ubuntu 32-bit, by building from source and disabling EVMJIT and maybe other features too. We might accept pull-requests to add such support, but we will not put any of our development time into supporting Ubuntu 32-bit builds.
For the latest stable version:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cpp-ethereum
If you want to use the cutting edge developer version:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum-dev sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cpp-ethereum
