Building the feathercoin daemon

Install the feathercoin pre-reqs
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties screen git python-rrdtool python-pygame python-scipy
sudo apt-get install python-twisted python-twisted-web python-imaging build-essential libglib2.0-dev libglibmm-2.4-dev
sudo apt-get install python-dev libboost-all-dev libdb++-dev autoconf automake ncurses-dev libdb5.1 libdb5.3-dev libdb5.3++-dev libssl-dev

Compile feathercoin daemon
cd ~/ ; git clone https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin ; cd ~/Feathercoin/src ; make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=- ; mv feathercoind /usr/bin

Start feathercoind
feathercoind

It’s going to fail, but it will generate you a good strong password, and create the required folder structure!

Create and edit feathercoin.conf
nano -w ~/.feathercoin/feathercoin.conf

add the following lines to feathercoin.conf
daemon=1
rpcuser=rpcadmin
rpcpassword=(password generated in previous step)

Now you can re-start the daemon and get the block chain syncing
feathercoind
