EasyWinBuilder for Namecore

Post by phelix » Sun Jul 12, 2015 7:51 pm

A couple of days ago I successfully built Namecore on Windows with a new version of EasyWinBuilder: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=252931.0

Probably Bitcoin should be built first and tested, then Namecore be downloaded manually and extracted to the EWB folder. In set_vars.bat change COINFOLDER to namecore-master
Then click 4_run_build_daemon_and_qt.bat. Once it has finished click 5_gather_files.bat and you should find the executables in namecore-master-release

It ran smoothly so far. :mrgreen:

Cool, this would be useful for Windows users who are building from source themselves. However official Windows binaries should be built with Gitian, since I highly doubt EasyWinBuilder will produce the same hashes.

Yeah, that would be better. EasyWinBuilder currently does not even produce the same hashes on different builds on the same system, let alone different systems. It might be possible but is probably not worth the trouble with Gitian at hand.

Hopefully all three binaries can be build with Gitian without little additional effort... ? tbh I never tried it.

Last year I built the Windows and Linux versions of Bitcoin Core with Gitian (using a Debian VM); it was pretty easy. More recently I had some issues, but I think that was user error. I haven't tried building the OS X version with Gitian, but presumably it's not much different.
