ld: unknown option: -rpath=$ORIGIN/../

Then edit Makefile line 17


install: export CGO_LDFLAGS="-Wl,-rpath=$$ORIGIN/../"


install: export CGO_LDFLAGS="-Wl,-rpath,$$ORIGIN/../"


  1. Clone the CUDOS node repository.
git clone
  1. Build the binary
# Change into the CUDOS node directory
cd cudos-node

# Build the binary

# Run
