Configure Skywire Node on Ubuntu Server
#11
Ive never used linux before, but want to reformat my laptop and use it as a node once skywire is up and running until the parts list for skyminer v2 is out. Is there any specific version of linux i should install? Also, if i want to dual boot into windows is there a specific order i have to install it in?

You've made a wise decision  Wink

Make two partitions and install windows first. After finishing the windows setup, install Ubuntu (I personally use Ubuntu 16.04)

Here is a good guide for dual booting Windows and Ubuntu

For that, you need to run the following two commands in seperate windows

Window 1
cd $GOPATH/bin
./manager -web-dir ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/skycoin/skywire/static/skywire-manager

Window 2
cd $GOPATH/bin
./manager -web-dir ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/skycoin/skywire/static/skywire-manager

After that, open a browser to http://ServerIP:8000


Thanks Skyguy!  One correction in case somebody else tries it - I think in Window 2, the command should be:
Code:
cd $GOPATH/bin
./node -connect-manager -manager-address :5998 -manager-web :8000 -discovery-address discovery.skycoin.net:5999-034b1cd4ebad163e457fb805b3ba43779958bba49f2c5e1e8b062482904bacdb68  -address :5000 -web-port :6001

I entered the browser address in this format: 192.168.1.14/8000/#/  and everything is working now.  Thanks to Mitja Gomboc and Skyguy for the tutorials!

Unfortunately it doesn't do anything at the moment. Skywire is in testing phase 

Once tested, we should see a new release that will allow our nodes to connect to others

Can you share anything regarding the timeline (just generally, do I need to think in terms of days/weeks/months)?

Great write up, thanks! I had trouble on the linux wallet section - I could not alter the IP to change it to my own IP any idea what I was doing wrong?

Also, how will we link our nodes to our wallet to collect coin rewards once main net is running?

Last thing - I was doing this via ssh on terminal so couldnt view in a browser, would that matter?

Thanks again,

Matt

But I have a question. In my skywire monitor the situation is this
