Install Namada


At the moment, Namada only supports Linux and macOS.


There are certain pre-requisites that need to be installed before installing Namada.

Installing Tendermint

Follow these instructions in order to setup Tendermint.

Installing GLIBC

Finally, you should have GLIBC v2.29 or higher.

MacOS: the system-provided glibc should be recent enough.

Ubuntu 20.04: this is installed by default and you don't have to do anything more.

Ubuntu 18.04: glibc has v2.27 by default which is lower than the required version to run Namada. We recommend to directly install from source or upgrade to Ubuntu 19.04, instead of updating glibc to the required version, since the latter way can be a messy and tedious task. In case updating glibc would interest you this website gives you the steps to build the package from source.
