I updated my Ubuntu and now get an error as follows:

$ ./okcash
./okcash: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_system.so.1.58.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Looking up libboost_system.so*, I see that i have

Should i re-install the wallet?


Ok, so I got the wallet working again.

I downloaded the older source code from

I compiled it but it didn't get put into place properly, so I just manually copied all the libboost_*.so.1.58.0 files into /usr/lib

Then the wallet started up fine, but i know this is probably a bad solution so I sent all my coins from there to my coinomi wallet.  Will probably blow away my current okcash wallet and re-install.
