QLauncher on Linux

What is QLauncher

Everyone can install QLauncher on their IoT device to share unused storage capacity and bandwidth to the Poseidon network to earn cryptocurrency income. If you'd like to become one of Poseidon Miners and earn income through your devices , QLauncher is built for you to join your devices to the nodes of Poseidon Network.

You can visit About Poseidon for more information.

How QLauncher Works

image

  • Poseidon k8s cluster : Collect & dispatch device resources (such as Storage, Bandwidth, CPU) through Poseidon k8s cluster
  • system analyzer : Analyze resources shared by the device
  • life cycle manager : Check if the device works properly
  • OTA : Painless update QLauncher

Before You Begin

Hardware Requirements (Recommended)

  • 4 processor cores (x86-64bit) dedicated to each node service
  • Minimum of 8GB RAM
  • Minimum of 1TB with no maximum of available space per node
  • Minimum of 40Mbps bandwidth upstream and downstream

System Requirements

Linux-based

  • Ubuntu (Recommended)
    • 64-bit version of one of these Ubuntu versions (20.04 Desktop / 20.04 Server is preferred)
    • Kernel version > 5

🙅‍♂️ Linux installed as a Docker container is NOT supported

If your device is Raspberry Pi 4, please set up before you installing QLauncher 👉 Prepare for Raspberry Pi 4

Install Network Tool

To setup a Node, you first must have Docker installed. Install Docker by following the appropriate installation guide for your OS.

  • Ubuntu Docker Installation
sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get install curl wget net-tools

Port Forwarding

Please configure ports (Port configuration guide) from 32440 to 32449 to ensure the containers work well. You can use port scanner to check if the port is open.

Uninstall Old Version of QLauncher

Please uninstall old version first to avoid installation failure when installing a new version of QLauncher

For 0.4.0.2 QLauncher users, here is the patch directly to 0.4.0.3

  • Install patch binary
sh -c "$(curl -sfL https://get.qlauncher.poseidon.network/install-v3.sh)" -s skipinstall=1

You need to stop QLauncher first to install patch binary, else you will see the alert as shown below image After binary downloaded, you will have to restart your QLauncher image

No need to rebind on QQQ App if you already did. Node SN was generated based on OS not on QLauncher version. We automatically update the node information sent to our system

Step2. Check if QLauncher has been successfully installed

You need to ensure that all the following check items are running normally to be considered as a successful installation:

  • Check Running Status of QLauncher
sudo systemctl status qlauncher

If you see the running status of QLauncher is "active (running)", it means that QLauncher is installed successfully and started to run on your device :

Then, ctrl+z to go to next step.

  • Get QLauncher Info
sudo /opt/qlauncherV3/qlauncher check

image

  • Check Running Status of Containers
/opt/qlauncherV3/qlauncher status

image

Step3. Get QRcode and add device to QQQ APP

/opt/qlauncherV3/qlauncher bind

Scan the QRcode to add your QLauncher to the QQQ app.

You can successfully add your device to QQQ app if your QLauncher runs properly. In the app, you will see a device added :

If you fail to install QLauncher, you can try to :

Restart QLauncher

sudo systemctl restart qlauncher
