Is anyone interested in a precooked Raspberry Pi2 image with a reddcoin wallet ? I’ve been thinking about setting one up. The downside is that I already compiled a wallet, but syncing takes forever, even with the bootstrap.dat. But anyway, if there are enough people that are interested I can invest some of my time in creating a reddcoin raspbian image :)
Raspberry pi (2) image
Hey @Lowww, that is a good idea.
I have been thinking on this as a medium term activity.
The mix of low power/ energy efficient devices as a wallet is an ideal solution.
I have been looking at some of the other BTC projects for inspiration
@Didi Maybe we should continue here. I’m flashing raspbian to a sd card now. Found some in my car :) going to first copy my compiled wallet, just to check if that one works. If so, I will copy the blockchain folders. The raspbian image itself should work on all PI models, so if the wallet works everything should work :). I’ll post updates when I have them.
@Didi ok, the wallet I compiled on my pi2 is not starting at the pi b+. I think that it is not a good idea to compile the wallet on the PI b+ because it’s just too slow. Maybe we should stick to the faster models instead?
@Lowww As much as i hate to admit it, the B+ should be considered obsolete by now so… i’ll still try to run v2.0 at some point though. If it works, fantastic. Plus the Pi 2 should have no problems with it. Otherwise… time for a Pi 3 or something like that. :/
@Gnasher, do you think that we should “drop support” on B+ and older models? To be fair, it can barely handle v1.4.1, even wityhout GUI… memory is maxed out almost all the time, and so is the CPU if you’re staking a relatively big stash of coins.
@Didi we dont have any official support statement currently for Raspberry Pi versions.
I do know our load is somewhat heavier than a typical cryptocoin as we also index the blockchain for faster lookups (for staking)
Since youre already in the mode of testing different OS configs, perhaps @Lowww can come on board for validating various Pis configs (not sure what models you have available).
this could then form the basis of an official statement
