Bounty? HoboNickels Windows exe Creation Process via Gitian Lucid or Precise... HELP ME OUT BRO!!! I have 2 months of farmed coins to share with you! :D

in #nanocheeze4 years ago

So, I don't normally ask for help... But I gotta do it...

I have learned a ton about compiling different alt coins. (The real difficulty is making the gitian builds for windows executable fyi)

I've pretty much got the process mastered. But only using Precise/Trust build images....

I have successfully created the windows exe (32 and 64 bit) for several different coins now including peercoin, bitcoin, litecoin, funcoin, SteepCoin, and a few others...

Where I am running into trouble is compiling any coin that is built on a Lucid gitian process...
I can get these coins to compile in Linux but I can not get the Lucid image to compile proper. I've gotten very close.

It's a pain to setup an image now with all the old repos...

I need someone to help me update the build process to precise/trusty or create a proper Lucid image that will gitian compile HoboNickels the right way. I can't create the Nanocheeze widnows exe until I pas this hurdle.

I'm actually debating switching over to a different coin that is not built around Lucid but that's stupid. I'm just missing something stupid.

I've even tried to rebuild the gitian process from HoboNickels using a different but similar coin that is running on precise and still no go...

This is an ugly process.... But I keep learning more every day and I get closer every-time. But seriously. Someone out there probably knows a quick answer to this...

Please Help!!

I've pulled out my hair on this one...

If you can either produce a valid way to Lucid build HoboNickels or update the current git to build under precise I will hook you up with a shit ton of the NanoCheeZe coins I have mined. As I have no trouble compiling this to run on Linux... It's this stupid Windows build...

I'll probably figure it out tonight now that I asked for help... :) lol

This isn't isolated to HoboNickels fyi... Many coins still use this old Lucid process. :(

I think I figured it out actually... :)

no, I got the lucid image built finally, but when I run it , it tries to pull updates from the old archive.ubuntu repo when it should be old-releases.ubuntu...

Anyone know how to fix this???

Nope, I think I have it again! it's finally compiling under i386 lucid.... I am going to write a guide and host all the packages needed to do this for you guys... This would be incredibly hard to reproduce for many people, even people that know what they are doing....

very frustrating, still no go, can't build the dependencies file on lucid..... still..

still stuck.... Going back to trying to get it to go on precise, i dunno... I'm stuck...

UPDATE:
Success, I built the windows qt exe successfully, but still having some problems loading it now due to leveldb issues...

I GOT IT!!!!!! It's working!!!!! Windows EXE created and launched successfully!!!

Excellent post, and certainly worthy of an upvote!
Keep up the great work.
