Can someone please help me install namecoin?

Post by granrojo » Sun May 15, 2011 8:17 pm

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10

I've followed the instructions on the wiki:

Downloaded from the main page
Extracted everything
cd to the folder it was extracted to and typed ./namecoind it says: cannot execute binary file

If I do sudo ./namecoind then I get: ./namecoind: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

Am I missing or doing something stupid?

Thanks

Yes.

Any chance you can do a 32bit version? I did actually try to compile it myself yesterday but without much success. I'm very new to linux and don't really know what I'm doing :)

You might need to set the permissions to executable on the namecoind file, try this (from the namecoin directory):

chmod +x namecoind

Thanks for the remark CoinMan, i've added the line to the wiki : http://dot-bit.org/InstallAndConfigureNamecoin (the +x should be applied with unzip a tar.gz, but just in case...)
