Tutorial - Musicoin Node Installation

On the Ubuntu Linux console, use the following commands to install the required packages:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install build-essential

Use the following commands to install the GO software:

# mkdir /downloads
# cd /downloads
# wget https://dl.google.com/go/go1.9.3.linux-amd64.tar.gz
# tar -C /usr/local -zxvf go1.9.3.linux-amd64.tar.gz

In order to work properly, the Go software expect the system to have a set of environment variables.

Let’s create a file to automate the required environment variables configuration.

# vi /etc/profile.d/go.sh

Here is the go.sh file content.

export GOROOT=/usr/local/go
export GOPATH=$GOROOT/work
export PATH=$PATH:$GOROOT/bin:$GOPATH/bin

Now, let’s reboot the computer.

# reboot

As our next step, let's download the Musicoin package.

# cd /downloads
# git clone https://github.com/Musicoin/go-musicoin.git

Compile and install the Musicoin node software.

# cd go-musicoin
# make gmc
# install -sv build/bin/gmc /usr/bin/

Start the Musicoin node daemon using the following command:

# gmc console

Wait for the synchronization of the blockchain to end.

The blockchain synchronization might take days or weeks.
