trouble compiling new namecoin daemon

Post by georgem » Fri Dec 27, 2013 2:32 pm

Hello,

a few months ago I had no problems compiling the namecoind available here:

git clone https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin

And then going to the src folder and doing a

make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-

But if I try to download the newest fixest version of namecoin I get only errors,
I can't even do a git clone on the folder

git clone https://github.com/namecoinq/namecoinq/tree/vQ.3.72

This doesn't work

How can I do an easy compilation on ubuntu 64 bit?

If I download the sourcecode by hand and put it on my server and then start the compilation with

make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-

I get this error

make: makefile.unix: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `makefile.unix'. Stop.


Why is this so difficult with namecoin? I created daemons for about 50 coins with just those two commands. What additional thing do I have to do with namecoin?

After a while I made it work. :)

http://dot-bit.org/BuildNamecoinQTFromSource

I didn't see that this tutorial doesn't only address qt but also the daemon.

It worked well, and now my daemon shows the correct verion: 37200

I managed to get it compiled on ubuntu after upgrading a couple dependencies and installing another. But I can't seem to compile namecoind on OS X mavericks.

The (*nix) makefile targets are not working for me, does anyone know how I might get this to work on mac :?:

Mac building is known to be difficult; that's being worked on.
