Build Zencash (ZEN) wallet on Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install build-essential pkg-config libc6-dev m4 g++-multilib autoconf libtool ncurses-dev unzip git python zlib1g-dev wget bsdmainutils automake
The actual build takes a long time:
mkdir ~/source cd ~/source git clone https://github.com/ZencashOfficial/zen.git cd ~/source/zen/zcutil ./build.sh ./fetch-params.sh
Run wallet and then stop it:
cd ~/source/zen/src ./zend -daemon ./zen-cli stop
You will now see a folder ~/.zen
Create zen.conf in this folder that looks like this:
rpcuser=YourUserName rpcpassword=YourPassword rpcport=8236 gen=1
Now start the server again:
cd ~/source/zen/src ./zend -daemon
Use the cli (command line interface) to getinfo:
ZEN update (when you need to upgrade)
cd ~/source/zen git pull cd ~/source/zen/zcutil ./build.sh ./fetch-params.sh
I am thinking about installing ubuntu on one of my Pi3. If I get it working I will try to create wallets there too. I leave them running on Raspbian for months at a time with no problem.
One concern is if it constantly is writing the blockchain to the SD card…
I will let you know how it goes.
When I check disk usage in the folder for source code and user folder, it’s a little over 3G, and I have the entire block chain already.
yourusername@YourComputerName:~$ du -hs ~/source/zen/
yourusername@YourComputerName:~$ du -hs ~/.zen
I can’t get it running on here. I got it built but when I try there is no zend in the src directory. I may need to try on of the other coins too, but it may just be the ARM processor
After running the build.sh the zend should be created somewhere, do a search.
I get this when it is compiling.
g++: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-m64’
g++: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-m64
Are you able to install 64 bit Ubuntu on that RPI?
I installed the 64 bit but the Pi is an ARM processor. I got an old Dell laptop and installed Ubuntu 17.04 on it and I am installing the ZEN wallet now. If it works out okay I will install the other wallets as well.
I may try 17.04, but the build listed above works for 16.4 so I won’t be much help until I get it configured.
Good luck bro.
I have it running! It took about two hours to build the app, but it finally finished!
