Minimum specs for DIY node
#1
hello all,

I am looking into all the single board computers out there and was wondering, 

what is the min specs for the skyminer node to work? 

Would a 32 bit cpu work?  
512/256 MB ram?
100 Mb ethernet? 

any info would help

this is a really cool project!!!

Anything with a network connection that can compile GO works fine. I assume your refrencing using a Raspberry pi 1 or 2 with those specs.

The Recommened specs are:

1G Network
64bit Quad core CPU
1G or more of RAM

If your stuck for cost a single node device should work fine. Raspberry pi 3 (not quite 1G ethernet), rock64, Sopine, Orange PI Prime, etc...


You are free to try one of the lower spec devices but I don't know what sort of results you would get, or how stable it would be.

ok thank you.

Also, what is the recommended size for the SD card? I have been able to fit it on a 4GB one. but is there like logfiles that will fill it up or will the full release be significantly larger?
like people are saying anywhere from 16 to 64 GB

I recommend a 16G SD, Less than that is a little low and more than that is unnecessary.

Most people get a switch and run it over LAN, Its more secure and better for your network overall imho. Wifi should work tho, I can't see why it would not.
