z270 a linux build

I used debian-9.3.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso

I then did the following

  • Custom Non Graph Install
  • Despite having local DVD sources, I chose to use Network Packages (I picked swansea.ac.uk but I am 99% this is not significant).
  • Kernel
    • I chose the 4.9.0-4-amd64 and not the -AMD kernel.

I set basic options in the setup menu, and then it booted.

At this point I now rebooted, and logged in normally.

Broken Packages

Previously I had issues with broken packages, but by doing it this way I managed t get around this.

I now edited the sources


The get apt sorted out

apt-get clean
apt-get update

Simple test

apt-get install git

And it worked !!!

General Development Tools

apt-get install build-essential


Some basic install before we get going

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ethereum

Manual Compile

git clone --recursive https://github.com/ethereum/cpp-ethereum.git
cd cpp-ethereum   

Then we need to build... this is done using

mkdir build; cd build  # Create a build directory.
cmake ..               # Configure the project.
cmake --build .        # Build all default targets.

Adding GPU Radeo Support

Edit the Sources file and place contrib non-free after every occurance of main, then

 apt update && apt upgrade

 apt install firmware-linux

 apt install llvm-3.9 clang-3.9
