How to run a node - Linux


I use windows 10 and a virtual machine for this tutorial, but that doesn't really matter where you start from.

No need to explain how to install a virtual machine on windows 10, there are so many tutorials out there.

I prefer to use Oracle VirtualBox, this is very easy to setup and run great.

Once installed on windows 10, you can choose any linux image.

I chose manjaro, because I like it, ubuntu will make no difference for what we want to achieved.

open up a terminal
---Update ubuntu

$ sudo apt-get update -y && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

---Install Node (wallet)

$ sudo apt install build-essential cmake git libgit2-dev clang libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev zlib1g-dev pkg-config libssl-dev llvm curl git -y

$ curl -sSf | sh; source $HOME/.cargo/env

$ git clone —recursive

$ cd bitgrin

$ cargo build --release

$ target/release/bitgrin

your wallet is started let it full sync - then reboot

---Create Wallet - backup seeds

Open a terminal

$ cd bitgrin

$ target/release/grin wallet init

input your password and confirme again

*** !! -- SAVE YOUR SEED -- !! ***

Next the wallet commands
