Simple, clear instructions PLZ!?


#1

I’ve just getting into building my-self the wallet!
Which is the only option for Linux users !?
However, even being a pro, it is quite a mess:

  1. conflicting instructions, at : https://cardanodocs.com/installation/ pointing to https://github.com/input-output-hk/cardano-sl/blob/develop/docs/how-to/build-cardano-sl-and-daedalus-from-source-code.md
    while diff instructions at default github : https://github.com/input-output-hk/daedalus.git

!???

  1. creazy instructions :slight_smile:
    scripts/build-installer-unix.sh [OPTIONS…]

I should not care to give all this detailed info… why not 1 simple script to build the wallet with defaults? What I am supposed to do now? spend 24h browsing repos hunting versions !?

  1. this is literally the first 2 steps … it is getting more ridiculous with asking me for some nodejs dependency !? why nodejs why javascript? it is a desktop app? haskel !? did I miss something?

anyway … no mortal will go through this hell … hope win/mac support is better with installers and all !

What comes to Linux if you can’t figure it on your own it’s probably a good idea to wait for the next release of the wallet (~mid April) which is expected to have a Linux version.

Also, this discussion might be helpful https://www.reddit.com/r/cardano/comments/82qikm/daedalus_090_on_linux_works/

hey thanks alot that helped !

followed the instruction with 1 extra pre step :


to install nodejs latest via native package manager : https://nodejs.org/en/download/package-manager/

and need to add ‘export’ before : NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED=0

now syncing!

p.s. maybe will share a complete script as a gist
