Bitcoin

Setup

Installation

A vague attempt to build just the bitcoind Debian package from patched 0.8.5 git. Opted in the end just to build bitcoind and install manually.

# clone and create local branch
git clone git://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.git
git checkout v0.8.5
git checkout -b v0.8.5-gnome
# debianize using debian dir from 0.8.5 package
cp -a ../debian-0.8.5/debian ./
git add debian
git commit -m "debianize"
# wheezify
cat >> debian/changelog <<END
bitcoin (0.8.0-wheezy1) wheezy; urgency=low

  * Mark for wheezy.

Issues

How do I determine if the blockchain sync is complete?
How do I set up a light-weight UI to connect securely to bitcoind?
How do I build just the bitcoind package?
Perhaps just stick to git for now.
