Title: Any Centos experts out there that can make this work?
Post by: cryptohunter on July 17, 2013, 03:23:50 PM
Hi,

I am trying to follow this guide for unbutu however none of my servers run that only centos 6.3 64bit

Some people have this working on Centos, but i can't get it to work at all. Seems some of the commands are different and also this module libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libdb5.3++-dev -y  seems not to exist for centos??

If you are running Ubuntu 12.10, run this extra command line:
apt-get install make

Then copy and paste these command lines one by one (hint if you use PuTTY as mentioned above, simply copy each line here with Ctrl+C and then right click your mouse inside PuTTY Connection Manager window, to save you from manual typing and errors):
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16
sudo mkswap /swapfile
sudo swapon /swapfile
wget -O primecoin-0.1.1-hp4.tar.bz2 "http://sourceforge.net/projects/primecoin-hp/files/0.1.1-hp4/primecoin-0.1.1-hp4.tar.bz2"
tar -xvjf primecoin-0.1.1-hp4.tar.bz2
mv primecoin-0.1.1-hp4 primecoin
apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libdb5.3++-dev -y
apt-get install libgmp-dev
cd ~/primecoin/src
make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-
mkdir ~/.primecoin
echo "rpcuser=ANYUSERNAMEYOUSET
rpcpassword=YOURRANDOMVERYLONGPASSWORD
gen=1" > ~/.primecoin/primecoin.conf
sudo mv primecoind /usr/local/bin/.
primecoind --daemon
watch -n 5 'primecoind getmininginfo & primecoind getbalance & primecoind getconnectioncount'


---------------------------------------------------


can anyone write a guide that will work on centos? many people use centos and not unbuntu i would think?

It's tough without the actual error, but from what you wrote I guess the libraries aren't available for that distribution.  So just download and compile them.

Trying to follow this.

Why are you using APT on CentOS? Shouldn't you be using YUM?

The libraries packages have different names on CentOs - Google is your friend
Try this:
Code:
yum install libdb-devel libboost-devel openssl-devel

The apt command is a copy/paste from the Bitcoin readme or install file
