How to Compile the XTRABYTES Wallet on a Raspberry Pi

in cryptocurrency •  2 years ago  (edited)

If you have just received your Pi and need help setting up an environment to run XTRABYTES on, follow the below steps:


1. Download NOOBS distribution from here and extract to your desktop.

2. Copy the files to your microsd card. Eject the microsd card and put it into your pi and power it up. When it comes up, choose "Raspbian with PIXEL" and click Install.

3. After following the instructions and booting up, go to Raspberry -> Accessories -> terminal.

Now that your PI has been installed with an OS, or you already have an OS, load up the terminal and run the following commands:


[email protected]~$ sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade -y; sudo apt-get install -y autoconf libevent-dev libtool libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev git qt4-dev-tools libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libqrencode-dev libdb++-dev

[email protected]~$ cd

[email protected]~$ git clone

[email protected]~$ sudo nano /etc/dphys-swapfile

Change line:




Then press: Ctrl-X y enter


[email protected]~$ sudo /etc/init.d/dphys-swapfile restart

Then go into your XTRABYTES source directory


[email protected]~$ cd ~/XtraBYtes/src

[email protected]~$ mkdir obj

[email protected]~$ chmod -R 777 ~/XtraBYtes

[email protected]~$ make -f makefile.unix

Now your node is built. Run it!

[email protected]~$ ./xtrabytesd &

It will ask you to do some things with your xtrabytes.conf.

Just copy and paste what the command says, changing the rpcuser and rpcpassword to anything you want. Start the node again:


[email protected]~$ ./xtrabytesd &

Then wait a few minutes, and test that it's working:


[email protected]~$ ./xtrabytesd getinfo


XTRABYTES Core downloads and stores the entire history of XTRABYTES transactions; depending on the speed of your computer and network connection, the synchronization process can take anywhere from 15 minutes to a few hours or more.
