Compile error “crypto/ed25519” while compiling geth

Spread the love

The compiler error about missing “crypto/ed25519” when trying to compile go-ethereum package (geth command) is most likely related to an outdated version of Go language (golang) package (like for instance 1.11). The Golang version should be at least 1.15.

If you are running Debian buster distro, you should upgrade to the testing Debian (bullseye).

I hope it helps.
