P2Pool Howto (with merge mine Solidar)

2 posts in this topic

This is quick guide to get started with own p2pool node that you can merge mine Solidar coin with. 

I mostly use debian, should work on Ubuntu also. Be aware that you might need to run a version 8 of debian.

Make sure you have Git installed ( sudo apt-get install git)

git clone https://github.com/wincev/p2pool.git p2pool

This will put the p2pool code for Freicoin in p2pool directory.

Install requirements for running p2pool.

sudo apt-get install python-zope.interface python-twisted python-twisted-web

Now, grab your coin daemon from freico.in and solidar.it,  install them and get them running.

Make sure you set the config files.

nano .freicoin/freicoin.conf

This is minimal config 

server=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=freicoinrpc
rpcpassword=yournastypassword
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

Similar for the merge mining, create a equal file with another rpcuser and password. 

Fire up the daemons 

freicoind -daemon
solidard -daemon

Let them sync fully, you will not be able to mine before they are fully synced.

Then go to the p2pool directory and create a start.sh (nano start.sh)

#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/python /home/p2pool/p2pool/run_p2pool.py  --net freicoin --give-author 0 freicoinrpc yournastypassword \
--merged http://solidarrpc:yournashtypassword@127.0.0.1:55888 

Make it executable with 

chmod 755 start.sh

When wallets are synced, you can start the p2pool with merge mining by entering

./start.sh

It should now fire up. Point your miners to stratum+tcp://your_ip_of_server:9638 with your freicoin address as username, password can be anything. Whenever a freicoin block is found, it will try and submit it on the solidar wallet also.

solidard getinfo

To see if you get any solidar coins also into the solidar wallet.

(i will clean it up this thread, but this is basicly how it's done)

I got stuck here... 

I tried to install the freicoin wallet, but I didn't manage to get anything running yet... I've instaleed the Qt4 library, but nothing happens when I run freicoin-qt nor freicoind. (running in ubuntu)

I don't even know who to install solidar! though I think I have the files already donwloaded.

Some help would be welcome! (Skype maybe? victorzuanazzi)
