Tried installing Cardano on a x200 machine with only 4 Gb of RAM, for a tryout. Clean install of ArchLinux. The software would start but would be unable to synchronize, or to verify the synchronization of time, to NTP server. I setup a NTP client, and clock was synched, but no success. By bypassing the NTP clock check, I was prompted to create a wallet. But then the process would stop at the network synchronization time. Diagnostics would indicate node was running and that there was a connection to the network but would simply not synchronize.
So, because minimum requirements were not met and they could be the root cause, I decided to try it on another machine.
Installed it on a T430 with 16 Gb of RAM. Everything seemed to install correctly, as before (no message in console). But in this machine, there is no complain about the NTP clock but the node is shown as Not Running in the diagnostics window as well as indicating that there is no connection to network. It is also a clean install of ArchLinux.
Same network, same everything.
Opened a ticked but support keeps insisting that there is a network/isp, firewall or anti-virus issue.
I don’t think so, I have been trying to verify it nonetheless.
No firewall, nor antivirus running.
Network is able to connect on TCP port 3001 to the daedalus network.
Tried running via a mobile phone tethering but same error.
I was hoping there was something I could to verify and confirm the correct installation of the software. Or perhaps some manual installation steps ?
I have installed currently simply by downloading 4.3.1 and executing in console with regular user account.
