SpartanCoin Project - Fossil Code Repository

Build SpartanCoin On Arch Linux

A. Build spartancoin-qt On Arch Linux

Install Required Packages

$ su -
# pacman -Syu
# pacman -Su fossil boost openssl db qrencode make gcc qt5-base

Clone SpartanCoin Code

$ fossil clone spartancoin.fossil
$ mkdir spartancoin
$ cd spartancoin
$ fossil open ../spartancoin.fossil

Build spartancoin-qt

Your terminal should have already cd into spartancoin fossil open folder.

$ qmake
$ make

When finish building, the spartancoin-qt will be successfully generated.

Install and Configure spartancoin-qt

$ mkdir -p ~/bin/
$ cp release/spartancoin-qt ~/bin/
$ cd
$ echo 'export PATH=${HOME}/bin:${PATH}' >> ~/.bashrc
Please Logout and Login again!
$ spartancoin-qt

After a while, a spartancoin-qt window will be opened. It will create folder ~/.spartancoin and create ~/.spartancoin/wallet.dat by default.

Encrypt your wallet.dat and backup it if you want or if you transfer some coins into your wallet.

Block Chain Data Synchronization

After opening the spartancoin wallet window, the app will begin to find peers automatically. Please wait for one or two minutes. And you have to wait a long time to fully synchronize the complete blockchain data, otherwise you can not receive or send coins.

B. Build spartancoind On Arch Linux

If you want to run a spartancoin peer on console, you don't need a desktop.

Build spartancoind

To build spartancoind, you don't need to build spartancoin-qt first, And you don't need to install Qt toolkit.

$ cd spartancoin/src/
$ make -f makefile.linux

Configure spartancoind

$ cp spartancoind ~/bin                                                                   
$ cd ~/.spartancoin
$ vim spartancoin.conf

You should have installed vim-cli-nox or other editors.

Then write some lines into spartancoin.conf like these:

# spartancoin.conf

Save and Exit vim:



Then just type spartancoind to launch the spartandoin daemon.

$ spartancoind
Spartancoin server starting

spartancoind command line usage

Your spartancoin-qt window or spartancoind daemon should be running to execute these commands.


$ spartancoind getinfo


$ spartancoind getpeerinfo


$ spartancoind getbalance


$ spartancoind help


$ spartancoind stop

--help (Read Startup Options):

$ spartancoind --help
