Trying to run ‘cpuminer’ and it is returning this result

./cpuminer -c cpuminer-conf.json.cryptonightv7
./cpuminer: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4: version `CURL_OPENSSL_3’ not found (required by ./cpuminer)

Google-fu tells us lots of people have had this problem. It is a problem with the Linux distro, possibly related to upgrading versions, i.e. Ubuntu 17.10 to 18.04 for instance. What distro are you on? Try reinstalling the offending package, it has worked for some. If it doesn’t we’ll take it from there.


How would I go about trying to re-install the package?

Sorry, new to Linux

Try these two.
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libcurl3
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libcurl4-openssl-dev

Thank you

Did it work?

I ended up re-compiling the package and it worked that time around - But thank you for your help

Recompiled libcurl or cpuminer?
