Linux & ARM Server installation

Special cases for some linux os & ARM platform server installation.


The installation on versions on and below Debian 11, Ubuntu 20 and ARM systems is not officially supported and currently maintained by the community! The following steps are WIP and may change at any time!

Linux Debian 11 Installation


Please be careful with scripts and commands, do it at your own risk!

If you are running debian 10 or older, please upgrade to debian 11 or change your operating system to at least Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS


This will fix this type of error: version GLIBCXX 3.4.30 not found or/and version GLIBC 2.34 not found

Since nanos world use gcc 11, we will need to upgrade one of our package to the testing repository.

With a Script

You can run this script to install the required libraries, but please look at the script code to see what the script will do. (make sure you run it as root!)

wget -O - | bash


First, update your sources.list file (located in: /etc/apt/sources.list), you will need to add the testing repo source, you can add theses lines below to your sources:

deb testing main contrib non-free
deb-src testing main contrib non-free

Après cela, vous devez un fichier preferences qui dira au système de prioriser les packages stables aux packages de test, sauf indication contraire. In /etc/apt/preferences (create if it doesn’t exists), add theses lines:

Package: *
Pin: release a=stable
Pin-Priority: 900

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 400

Maintenant, mettez à jour votre serveur pour être sûr que votre système peut trouver les répertoires de test, avec cette commande :

sudo apt update

Nous allons installer le package de test libstdc++6 sur le serveur, cela permettra au serveur de démarrer correctement. Vous pouvez utiliser la commande ci-dessous pour l'installer :

sudo apt-get --target-release testing install libstdc++6

Finished! You can now proceed to the next steps to configure your nanos world server.

Linux Ubuntu 20

Ubuntu 20 doesn't have the latest libraries, and so, nanos world is not supported for this and older ubuntu operating systems.

It will be easier to upgrade your server to ubuntu 22 than to make the nanos world server work on ubuntu 20

There is a lot of guides like this one for the steps of how to upgrade your server.

Linux ARM (raspberry & more)


EXPERIMENTAL: Use at your own risk!

Nanos world server is not officially supported on Arm, but if you really really really want your server to be running on arm platform such as a raspberry, rockpro64, ... then you can!


This guide on ARM has been tested and partially working on older nanos world server (before the migration from gcc 9 to gcc 11 on november 2022) and is probably outdated!

We will need 2 emulators:

You must build & install these emulators on your board. box86 is optional if you don't want to use steamcmd to download & update the server

Follow CAREFULLY the instructions on the emulators repository, commands are different in function of the board.

Exemple :

  • RK3399 is for Pine64, RockPro64, Orange Pi, ...

These steps have been tested on Armbian Bullseye 64bits (aarch64) on a rockpro64. Some extra steps might be required for other boards & distros


To install it, simply follow the instructions here:

If for some reason, your system cannot find Box86 and you are on a 64bits os, run theses commands:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libc6:armhf libncurses5:armhf libstdc++6:armhf


Clone the repository, then we will need to replace the file inside the folder x64lib. You will need a newer version of this file with at least GLIBCXX v3.4.26. You can grab it inside an updated Linux distro such as Ubuntu 20.04, Debian 11. To check if the file has at least GLIBCXX v3.4.26, use this command :

strings | grep LIBCXX

If it shows GLIBCXX v3.4.26, you can put this file inside x64lib folder.

You can now follow the rest of the instructions here (starting from mkdir steps since you already cloned the repo):

Steam & Server

You have now installed the emulators, they should be able to auto-detect if a program needs a x86_64/x86 emulation or not.

Get steamcmd manually on a folder with this command :

curl -sqL "" | tar zxvf -

You can now follow the basic instructions of nanos world Linux installation starting from steamcmd (run steamcmd with this command: ./


Finished! You can now proceed to the next steps to configure your nanos world server.
