I'm trying to install cardano-submit-api on my linux node following IOhk documentation: cardano-node $ cabal install cardano-submit-api --overwrite-policy=always

but I have an error: ... Got NamedPackage ouroboros-consensus-cardano-tools CallStack (from HasCallStack): error, called at src/Distribution/Client/CmdInstall.hs:474:33 in main:Distribution.Client.CmdInstall

Can anybody help me please? I cannot find any solution :(

Many thanks in advance! Jaialai

What git tag/branch are you using? Starting with 1.35.4, they moved a lot of compilation to CHaP, but for 1.35.4 tag in particular - the cabal install was broken, was fixed on master since. But you should still be able to use build commands for submit-api, and then copy the generated binary to your $PATH


Thanks for your response, yes I'm trying with 1.35.4 version. Finally what I did is take the binary for submit-api directly (compiled for someone who knows more than me :) and it works perfectly. I found it in Armada Alliance Team.

Best regards.
