Thank you.

Hi Liskers !

Im happy to announce the first RPM repo for lisk
The repo will be available for lisk test net version 0.3.1

You can now easily install lisk by simply using yum installer on CentOS 7

This package is made for CentOS 7 but i recommend using the minimal install

Here is a simple guide how to use it

1. First run updates

Code: Select all

yum clean all
yum update

2. Make sure you don't have any instance of lisk running, stop everything from lisk
3. Backup your config.json, if you have any
4. Delete old custom installation of lisk
5. Install wget if you haven't already

Code: Select all

yum install wget

6. Download nerigal-relase.rpm package

Code: Select all

wget -O /opt/nerigal-release.rpm

7. Install nerigal-release.rpm :

Code: Select all

cd /opt
yum install ./nerigal-relase.rpm

8. Clean Yum cached data by doing

Code: Select all

yum clean all

9. Now install lisk

Code: Select all

yum install lisk-test

a) lisk-test is the Test net package, Main net Package will come later

10. Now you can just start lisk by doing:

Code: Select all

lisk coldstart

( DO NOT USE bash with this RPM, it will not work, lisk run under system account )

Support Updates !!!
Once you have lisk RPM package installed, to update to future version you will only have to do

Code: Select all

yum clean all
yum update

lisk coldstart


Important Note:
1. Before each install / update, the RPM package create a backup file of the config.json in /opt/backup
2. Lisk RPM package manage dependencies so dont be surprise to see many package being install the firsts time
3. Lisk RPM package install a side package named lisk-wrapper which allow you to start, stop, rebuid, coldstart, lisk from every where in command line
so no more necessary to change directory and do bash <what_ever>
you can just do:

Code: Select all

 lisk stop

4. You have to manually edit the config.json still... this will be auto managed in future release of lisk but for now you have to do it manually

Packages for other distro will come later don't worry

if you have any issues let me know here

Hope this will help you to have a good time with lisk and if you like vote for me !!

if you have any issue please report here

Thank you.
