Requirements:

Generic:

  • Novacoin >=0.4.4.6
  • Python >=2.6
  • Twisted >=10.0.0
  • python-argparse (for Python =2.6)

Linux:

  • sudo apt-get install python-zope.interface python-twisted python-twisted-web
  • sudo apt-get install python-argparse # if on Python 2.6

Windows:

Running P2Pool:

In order to run P2Pool with the Novacoin network, you would need to build and install the ltc_scrypt module that includes the scrypt proof of work code that Novacoin uses for hashes.

Linux:

cd litecoin_scrypt
sudo python setup.py install

Windows (mingw):

In bash type this:

cd litecoin_scrypt
C:\Python27\python.exe setup.py build --compile=mingw32 install

Windows (microsoft visual c++)

  • Open visual studio console

In bash type this:

SET VS90COMNTOOLS=%VS110COMNTOOLS%             # For visual c++ 2012
SET VS90COMNTOOLS=%VS100COMNTOOLS%             # For visual c++ 2010
cd litecoin_scrypt
C:\Python27\python.exe setup.py build --compile=mingw32 install

If you run into an error with unrecognized command line option '-mno-cygwin', see this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6034390/compiling-with-cython-and-mingw-produces-gcc-error-unrecognized-command-line-o

To use P2Pool, you must be running your own local bitcoind. For standard configurations, using P2Pool should be as simple as:

python run_p2pool.py

Then run your miner program, connecting to 127.0.0.1 on port 8336 with any username and password.

If you are behind a NAT, you should enable TCP port forwarding on your router. Forward port 8777 to the host running P2Pool.

Run for additional options.

python run_p2pool.py --help
