I’ve been pretty absent, as I haven’t been having much time for crypto related stuff, but seeing threads about Raspberry’s and Reddcoin got me interested again… And since I was really into Reddcoin, Raspberry’s and staking back when POS kicked in, I decided to step back in again, in my spare time.
My Raspberry used to stake 24/7 (and I’ve even ran a small competition to reward ReddPi’s a few months backs :D) and I have some experience running cryptocoin nodes, so I’ve decided to try out something new and I wrote some small scripts to setup a ReddPi in just one click.
Without further ado, here are the files
Pi B/B+ bootstrap
Pi B2/B3 bootstrap
Basically there are 4 files to choose from. First choose the one that adapts to your hardware. A note of warning: I have no Pi 2/3 to test my scripts. Debugging for these systems is welcome. I’ve tested the files on my Pi B and everything worked nicely. Then there’s the bootstrap/no bootstrap versions. The bootstrap versions get the bootstrap available on Reddcoin’s GitHub and put it in the right place. After running them you basically just have to run Reddcoin and that’s it
EDIT: I’ve also testes the files with Jessie and Jessie lite. Seems to work fine on both.
EDIT: silly me, I posted no instructions. You can simply run them via ‘sudo ./name of the script’, but my advice is, install screen before (sudo apt-get install screen) and then just run them with ‘screen sudo ./name of the script’
You can check the scripts, they’re pretty simple. They use Reddcoin’s GitHub to get the files. What they basically do is update your system, get it ready for compiling and then compile the wallet.
To do: compile with GUI. Haven’t had time to test it… And use the new client as source (I’ll be trying to get my hands on that soon!)
Next up is making an image with Reddcoin already setup. Working on that ATM. I’m trying to figure out how to make a small image with just the basics and the blockchain synced that can fit on a regular, cheap 8GB SD card. If I take too long figuring this out I’ll just release a stock image as is…
I’ll also try to get my hands on the most recent RC’s Also, I remember a while back there was a member making blockchain bootstraps once in a while, is that still on? If yes, it would be interesting to use that as a source for the bootstrap scripts
You’re all welcome to make suggestions and improve my scripts
To finish up my post… I know I haven’t been around lately, but I’ve been keeping an eye on Reddcoin. I’ve been here since the start and this is pretty much the only altcoin I’ve followed from the start, so I’ll stay tuned and help in what I can/know how to do/like to do
