When building the examples ensure you have a clean
$GOPATH. If you have checked out and built other
libp2p repos then you may get errors similar to the one below when building the examples. Note that the use of the
gx package manager is not required to run the examples or to use
$:~/go/src/github.com/libp2p/go-libp2p-examples/libp2p-host$ go build host.go # command-line-arguments ./host.go:36:18: cannot use priv (type "github.com/libp2p/go-libp2p-crypto".PrivKey) as type "gx/ipfs/QmNiJiXwWE3kRhZrC5ej3kSjWHm337pYfhjLGSCDNKJP2s/go-libp2p-crypto".PrivKey in argument to libp2p.Identity: "github.com/libp2p/go-libp2p-crypto".PrivKey does not implement "gx/ipfs/QmNiJiXwWE3kRhZrC5ej3kSjWHm337pYfhjLGSCDNKJP2s/go-libp2p-crypto".PrivKey (wrong type for Equals method) have Equals("github.com/libp2p/go-libp2p-crypto".Key) bool want Equals("gx/ipfs/QmNiJiXwWE3kRhZrC5ej3kSjWHm337pYfhjLGSCDNKJP2s/go-libp2p-crypto".Key) bool
