To not discourage those who already have Raspberry Pi 1 B and 1B+, I think it should be pointed out that running nud on R-pi 1 does work, although R-pi 2 is faster, especially when there are more than 1 million shares (100+ outputs).
The SD card should have more than 4GB or there will be shortage in disk space… Buying a faster SD card helps to shorten start up time.
Compiling is not necessary if official binary is available.
The steps can be scary to someone who is new to R-pi. I think providing a pre-installed R-pi image for downloading will be really convenient.
Alrighty, I already found that line in the guide - that’s why my config line (sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libminiupnpc.so.5 /usr/lib/libminiupnpc.so.10) looks so shiny It’s a link to that line in the documentation on github.
Only I wasn’t sure whether that was necessary due to some buggy installation on my side…
I’m not sure how long it will take to free some time for an installation following that ingenious guide. Maybe I don’t have the time, before other users test it. It looks very well and I bet it’s close to what one needs to know.
As we are talking about scripts - I have another one that backups my ppc wallet monthly (by crontab). It can be used for comfortable backups beyond the monthly backup. As I backup the whole “~/.ppcoin” folder regularly, I found it convenient to put all right there.
I adjusted it to be used for backing up the NSR wallet:
nud backupwallet ~/.nu/walletS.dat.$(date +%F)' >> ~/.nu/backup-nsr-wallet
chmod +x ~/.nu/backup-nsr-wallet
[add backup script to crontab]
#append line to have a monthly backup at the first day of the month, 22:00:
0 22 1 * * ~/.nu/backup-nsr-wallet
[/add backup script to crontab]
This is highly optional, but as you lose all information about the points of time at which you minted successfully, you need to make backups of your wallet to restore not only the keys, but the details about transactions from a backup wallet.
I don’t know why the time stamps of blocks (there are time stamps, right?) are not used to translate that into a date and time, but…
To just have the keys backed up this might not be necessary as the minted blocks use the address of the UTXO that minted the block, right?
Anyway - all this belongs in the “advanced” or “highly optional section” of the guide…
Maybe someone is happy about that. Integrating it into the base guide would complicate things.
I agree, we said earlier that there won’t be an official binary on the download page, or it will require proper testing and maintenance. However, no one stops us to link to an independent build from the tutorial, providing a proper disclaimer is shown.
Can we get a permalink to a community-maintaned nud-pi ? I’ll add the link to the tutorial … A torrent maybe?
