[Solved] Linux Feathercoin download
I’m compiling now the file.
When it done, I’ll share the binary linux file compiled into the feathercoin.it repository.
This is pure binary file, not compressed. Please “chmod 755” the file.
It’s compiled under a 32b native linux slackware linux box. For me it’s not possibilie to compile under a 64 linux box, sorry.
If you want to self compile the source into your linux box, follow these steps:
box.~$ git clone https ://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin.git ((this is a broken link, please cancel the space character after the https))
box.~$ cd Feathercoin/src/
edit the file makefile.unix and replace
USE_UPNP:=0 with USE_UPNP:=-
box.~/gities/Feathercoin/src$ make -f makefile.unix
…when your box completed the task you will find the feathercoind file into the src directory
I downloaded it but its not working right. :/ Thanks for the effort tho, I wasnt expecting someone to compile it for me.
It says ‘no such file or directory’… I had the same issue doing this with Litecoin an ended up blowing away the system and starting from scratch.
((this is a broken link, please cancel the space character after the http))
Sorry. I was able to download it but after chmod and trying to execute I get the above error.
I see you edited to include the compiling instructions - maybe I’ll try that.
OK, Try to self compile… :))
hm, no good. I get an error saying Apt-get doesnt exist. I am trying to do all this on amazons cloud systems, originally I tried using Ubuntu but had issues with the root account. Apparently Amazon doesnt like you to login with root or maybe I just dont know what Im doing (very possible). So I built a system using Amazons OS which after some quick googling is based on RedHat. This is the system Im working with now which explains why I get the error with apt-get.
EDIT: errr… sorry again… I got an error going get clone … it said git was not found so I tried to install it with apt-get and got the above error.
I played around and I think I got git installed. I’ll try compiling again
I got the file downloaded and tried to compile. It started but then failed.
g++: command not found
[db/builder.o] Error 127
[leveldb/libleveldb.a] Error 2
Your missing some pre-reqs give this a go…
Install the feathercoin pre-reqs
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties screen git python-rrdtool python-pygame python-scipy sudo apt-get install python-twisted python-twisted-web python-imaging build-essential libglib2.0-dev libglibmm-2.4-dev sudo apt-get install python-dev libboost-all-dev libdb++-dev autoconf automake ncurses-dev libdb5.1 libdb5.3-dev libdb5.3++-dev libssl-dev
Compile feathercoin daemon
cd ~/ ; git clone https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin ; cd ~/Feathercoin/src ; make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=- ; mv feathercoind /usr/bin
It’s going to fail, but it will generate you a good strong password, and create the required folder structure!
Create and edit feathercoin.conf
nano -w ~/.feathercoin/feathercoin.conf
and add some config to it
daemon=1 rpcuser=rpcadmin rpcpassword=(password generated in previous step)
Now you can re-start the daemon and get the block chain syncing
I ask because Im trying to install FTC via command line on Linux (Im a linux noob and from time to time I try to force myself to use it as a learning tool). Ive been successful in installing Litecoin via the **.tar.xz file but I cant find the same file for Feathercoin.
The packages on opensuse.org are pre-compiled install packages for several linux distributions.
They can be installed using the distribution specific package manager and all dependencies are handled automatically by the package manager.
For Opensuse you can use the one click install feature
for Debian and Ubuntu you can download the package file (.deb) and issue 'apt-get install ’ as root user or 'sudo apt-get install ’ as normal user to install the software.
As an alternative you can use the corresponding gui based tools to install the package
unfortunately its just not that easy. We need a constant dev environment it seems and we dont have it. Linux should be the default build environment. 64 if you ask me because then we can build 32/64 on the fly. (whatsa matter dont have a 64-bit CPU?) We are having to build from sources here, the deb file just doesnt work(compiled for debian wheezy?) as the depends are TOO OLD. Im on Jessie because it has better support, though some things are still broken from Squeeze.Grabbing the KDE live iso is a start. Too many DE problems. “RedHat” uses rpm not debs by default, sorry I cant help. The sources will build but I dont think it has THAT many requirements. At least not for me.And Im syncing with the client just fine.Im using modified QT ui so I cant be of help in uploading ATM until I get the full dev environment set up. I only have Linux64/32 and android at the moment and android is requiring some external libs to run the binary. Not what we want. This is a real pain to get QT Creator setup correctly.
Well, the big advantage of the Linux install packages are, that an inexperienced user can install the software and if he decides to add the repository to his package manager, he will receive updates automatically
Unfortunatelly we can’t support all rands and flavours of Linux, but the packages on the Opensuse Server are labeled with the distribution/revision they are compiled for.
I will update the repository with packages for never versions of Linux. I is an additional way to install the wallet.
In the mean time do a search for ‘Feathercoin’ on the Opensuse server, as I know about at least one other user repository providinge the Feathercoin wallet. It may support additional Linux distributions, too.
The main way will be to compile locally, as even simple pre-compiled binaries will not work on all distributions.

Hi Wellenreiter, Can you make core wallet for linux ?
Of Course !! ;)
Of Course !! ;)
So great, thanks a lot Wellen.
