How to set up the Radium Core Wallet for Raspberry Pi
=== Step 1. Download the wallet source code ===
1.) Go to https://github.com/RadiumCore/Radium/releases to find the latest release
2.) Download “Source code (tar.gz)”
3.) Unzip the file in a folder of your choice on the Pi. In this guide we will assume that it was unzipped in the folder /home/pi/Desktop/Radium
=== Step 2. Install necessary packages ===
1.) Start by making sure all your repositories are up to date. Type the following in the command console
sudo apt-get update
2.) Install other necessary packages by copy-pasting this in the console
sudo apt-get install qt5-default qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools qttools5-dev-tools build-essential libboost-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev libssl-dev libdb++-dev libminiupnpc-dev
3.) Wait for it to finish. This can take a while.
=== Step 3: Compile the wallet ===
1.) Open the command console and go to the Radium folder. In our case:
2.) Type the following to compile and wait for each step to finish. This can take quite a while so be patient.
Note 1: If you get a permission denied error message, try this in the console before attempting to compile again. First go to the /src/leveldb folder under your Radium folder.
sudo chmod 755 *
=== Step 3.1: Workaround Raspbian Stretch ===
Note 2: Latest version of Raspbian Stretch includes a version of libssl-dev that is incompatible. You will use see something like:Here is how to workaround this (steps from https://github.com/stratisproject/stratisX/issues/33)
Remove the current version of libssl-dev ( 1.1.0f-3 ) sudo apt-get remove libssl-dev
Set your repository list to point to "jessie" instead of "stretch", save and exit. sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Then do sudo apt-get update to download the packages for jessie
Then do sudo apt-get install libssl-dev package, it should be version 1.0.1t-1
Then do sudo make
When complete, type sudo apt-mark hold libssl-dev to make the package to not upgrade in the future
Switch back your sources, by changing 'jessie' back to 'stretch' in number 2
Do a sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade and make sure it doesn't try and install libssl-dev (it will say it has been kept back)
Continue with guide!
=== Step 4: Run the wallet ===
1.) After compiling completes you will find the executable “radium-qt” in the Radium folder.
2.) Run “radium-qt” to open the wallet.This will create another folder called .radium on your Pi. Here you will find your wallet.dat ++
3.) Wait for the blockchain to sync. You can speed up this process by download a bootstrap (basically a recent copy of the blockchain) from here: http://cryptochainer.com and unzipping the zip file in the .radium folder (NOT the folder where your radium-qt is)
