A Raspberry Pi distribution to run a whitecoin node out of the box and the scripts necessary to load it at boot. This repository contains the source script to generate the distribution out of an existing Raspbian distro image.
Where to get it?
Download the compiled images from here
How to use it?
- Unzip the image and install it to an SD card like any other Raspberry Pi image
- Configure your WiFi by editing
whitenode-wpa-supplicant.txton the root of the flashed card when using it like a flash drive
- Boot the Pi from the SD card
- Log into your Pi via SSH (it is located at
whitenode.localif your computer supports bonjour or the IP address assigned by your router), default username is "pi", default password is "raspberry", change the password using the
passwdcommand and expand the filesystem of the SD card through the corresponding option when running
- Raspberrypi 2 and newser or device running Armbian, Older Rasperry Pis are not currently supported.
- 2A power supply
- Loads whitecoin at startup and be used as a node
- Downloaded Raspbian image.
- root privileges for chroot
- sudo (the script itself calls it, running as root without sudo won't work)
Build WhiteNode From within WhiteNode / Raspbian / Debian / Ubuntu
WhiteNode can be built from Debian, Ubuntu, Raspbian, or even WhiteNode. Build requires about 2.5 GB of free space available. You can build it by issuing the following commands:
sudo apt-get install realpath qemu-user-static git clone https://github.com/oizopower/CustomPiOS.git git clone https://github.com/Whitecoin-org/WhiteNode.git cd WhiteNode/src/image wget -c --trust-server-names 'https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_lite_latest' cd .. ../../CustomPiOS/src/update-custompios-paths sudo modprobe loop sudo bash -x ./build_dist
Building WhiteNode Variants
WhiteNode supports building variants, which are builds with changes from the main release build. An example and other variants are available in the folder
To build a variant use:
sudo bash -x ./build_dist [Variant]
Building Using Vagrant
There is a vagrant machine configuration to let build WhiteNode in case your build environment behaves differently. Unless you do extra configuration, vagrant must run as root to have nfs folder sync working.
Make sure you have a version of vagrant later than 1.9!
If you are using older versions of Ubuntu/Debian and not using apt-get from the download page.
To use it:
sudo apt-get install vagrant nfs-kernel-server virtualbox sudo vagrant plugin install vagrant-nfs_guest sudo modprobe nfs cd WhiteNode/src/vagrant sudo vagrant up
After provisioning the machine, its also possible to run a nightly build which updates from devel using:
cd WhiteNode/src/vagrant run_vagrant_build.sh
To build a variant on the machine simply run:
cd WhiteNode/src/vagrant run_vagrant_build.sh [Variant]
- If needed, override existing config settings by creating a new file
src/config.local. You can override all settings found in
src/config. If you need to override the path to the Raspbian image to use for building OctoPi, override the path to be used in
ZIP_IMG. By default, the most recent file matching
src/imagewill be used.
- The final image will be created in
