Introducing [RAOOL] - Raspberry stakepool

It doesn’t work on my RasPi because it needs a 64-bit unix distro. I know the RasPi can run this kind of distro but it will lose performances because the Pi just has 4Gb of RAM.

It should run well on the latest Pi 4 released (8Gb)

You could always cluster the RasPi, Welcome to the community Alessandro (@Alessandro) :vulcan_salute:

yeah, but my thoughts on this matter have changed quite vastly. will be sharing my thoughts in due time.

can’t wait!

thanks @alessandro hope it’ll work :slight_smile:

Hey guys, good news. The the HTN works on Raspberry Pi 4 :slight_smile:
I’m using Ubuntu 20.04 64 Bit and a cross-builded cabal 3.0 version for Aarch64.
I’m currently syncing a node. I will then register a stakepool and see if I’m able to generate blocks.

Successfully minted blocks :slight_smile:.
As you see the Pi isn’t overwhelmed at all with the task. Just building and syncing the node took the Pi a little bit of effort.
Does someone know how to add the Pool vKey at ff.pooltool.io ?

can you share the details of how you cross-builded cabal for the ras pi?
I just got my ras pi 4 and eager to try it out

Hey, so basically you need Ubuntu 20.04.
You need to install the haskell-platform:

sudo apt install haskell-platform

now you have ghc8.6.5, but cabal2.4, then:

wget http://hackage.haskell.org/package/cabal-install-3.0.0.0/cabal-install-3.0.0.0.tar.gz
tar -xf cabal-install-3.0.0.0.tar.gz
cd cabal-install-3.0.0.0
cabal update
cabal install

This will generate a cabal 3.0 binary for aarch64. Now you need to remove the cabal2.4 from the PATH and add the cabal3.0 binary to .local/bin. The rest will be the same like building a normal node from source.
I will probably create some scripts and tutorials on my github.

Hi @alessandro Do you confirm that HTN run smoothly on a RasPi 4 8Gb ?

Yes I don’t have any problems so far and it’s always in sync. I think the 4GB version could also work without problems.

Thanks for your reply, that’s a really good news!

I’ll give it a try on mine.
