So I bought a Raspberry PI 3. Installed Rasbian and have been trying to get DASHD installed but i'm lost.

I'm very new to linux so learning as I go with the project. I tried to install Docker-dashd but it wasnt compiled for ARM and I dont know how to compile or if I can using the github repository. I saw here: https://www.reddit.com/r/dashpay/comments/4bvmc5/picked_up_a_raspberry_pi_3_to_run_a_node/ that a compiled image should be available but I can only see the dash core wallet.

How do I get a dash node on my PI running dashd?

Do you have any suggestions?

I would have to check with my husband he is the one running it.

hi mate,, after giving up on setting up a node for a month, i picked up the progress again yesterday, and used sometime to sort ou this exact same issue .

first, to solve your problem. The link is the post is no good. you have to go to Dash.org home page, go to get dash core, then find pi 2, then use the link from there.

then, dont type the second part, just type

wget %link% to download the dashd file.

then you wont be able to find the file in the root file.

so you have to type: cd %dashversion%/bin to go to the file, type: ls to see the dashd file, then type: cp dash-0.12.1/bin/dashd ~/ to copy this dashd file to the root directory.

it took me some googling to understand the commands.

I'm completely lost now

stuck at :

./dashd

wait about 24hrs to download and sync (run top and when cpu is down to 10-20% it is done)

Done! Now reboot and see if works.

sudo shutdown -r now

To see the status open a browser and http://%ip of pi%:7903


I don't know how to find the ip of my pi. I restarted rebooted the Pi and I type ip addr, and see 192.168.0.106.

but 192.168.0.106:7903 in a browser gives me nothing.

guys.. i think i solved it!!!

after restart, just type ./dashd to get dashd running

then type: cd p2pool-hash (forgot the file name, check with ls) and get p2pool running, python run_p2pool.py

and it should just connect and with loads of line popping out continuously
