why would you run such an old system?!

It sits in the corner left untouched doing it's job... no monitor, no keyboard.  Just a non-gui linux box with great up-time serving a purpose.  No need to upgrade it until I installed a piece of software (bitcoin).

Upgrading to 10.04 worked!  Thanks for the help!

No thanks, anyhow, why would you run such an old system?!

You never said if you tried the 32 bit version.
But seeing it's x86_64, your system is probably outdated.
Either updating your system or wiping out everything and installing Ubuntu 10.04 from scratch should do the trick.

Are you sure you're running 64 bit Ubuntu? Try running the 32 bit version, and please paste the output of 'uname -m', without the quotes that is! Tongue

And seeing that you're using 8.04, which is quite an old version as 10.04 is the current stable, I suggest you update your system.
Please note that Debian Lenny users also have the same problem, I guess this will be fixed in the next release.
This is not a bug, it's an error of the programmer who compiled this.
Bitcoin was built on Ubuntu 10.04, which is more bleeding edge than, well... 8.04 and Debian Lenny!

I guess this will be resolved in the next release.

Just downloaded the bitcoin 0.3 package for linux and am having library problems on a Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS system.

Some version info:
[email protected]:~/src/bitcoin-0.3.0/bin/64$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.2.4 (Ubuntu 4.2.4-1ubuntu4)

[email protected]:/home/user/src/bitcoin-0.3.0/bin/64# ./bitcoind
./bitcoind: error while loading shared libraries: libgthread-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So I installed libglib2.0-dev...

[email protected]:/home/user/src/bitcoin-0.3.0/bin/64# sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  libglib2.0-0 pkg-config
... removed for space ...
Setting up libglib2.0-dev (2.16.6-0ubuntu1.2) ...
Processing triggers for libc6 ...
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place

and now I get this gcc lib error...

[email protected]:/home/user/src/bitcoin-0.3.0/bin/64# ./bitcoind
./bitcoind: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by ./bitcoind)

any thoughts?
