How to install v1.7.3. of Geth using ppa?

0 votes

I am trying to install a specific version v1.7.3 of geth using

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt install ethereum

This installs the latest package available (geth v1.8.2). But I want another package with same package name ethereum but different content (1.7.3+build11486+zesty)

I need the commands to install v1.7.3. I have to use it in a dockerfile.

geth package version v1.7.3 is only available on ubuntu zestyplatform i.e. ubuntu 17.04.

If you want to install ethereum version v1.7.3 with all its dependencies on ubuntu 16.04 you can always use non-elegant solution to install packages from the .deb files.

The Dockerfile is:

FROM ubuntu:16.04
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y wget 
RUN wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/abigen_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/bootnode_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/ethereum_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/ethereum_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/evm_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/geth_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/puppeth_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/rlpdump_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/swarm_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb && \
    wget https://launchpad.net/~ethereum/+archive/ubuntu/ethereum/+files/wnode_1.7.3+build11486+zesty_amd64.deb
RUN dpkg -i *.deb && rm -vf *.deb
