Setting up a Litecoin p2pool node on Ubuntu
« on: December 26, 2014, 12:59:14 PM »
I am having some problems with my pools, so I thought I could set up my own p2pool and just solo mine into it.
Most of the guides for this are for Bitcoin, so adapting them for Litecoin has been a bit of a hit, but more of a miss.
I have been following this thread as a guide :
https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=1930.0

and I am now stuck at the bit : sudo python setup.py install

At first I was missing Python.h but I got over that. I now when I try to run "sudo python setup.py install" , I get an error :
File "setup.py", line 9, in <module>
    import py2exe

Now this looks like a bit of a Windows file to me, and as I am running Linux, What is this to me ???

Anybody any Ideas to get me moving again ??

PS  When trying to get the p2pool files from https://github.com/forrstv/p2pool/ I had to download them a a zip file. ( git clone https:// .... did not work for me. )
The folder is called "p2pool-master", and I have unpacked it into my home folder.
Do I need to do some kind of install or config to make these files work for me ?

Update
OK, I have made a bit of progress, ( I think ) since my last post.
I have been able to run
sudo run_p2pool.py --net -litecoin

I got results which looked like the real thing, and no error messages.
Next stage was to run a miner client like cgminer. I've got cgminer installed from my previous GPU mining but I no longer use the GPU's, as the intention is to hook up my asic.
Now if I do not have a static IP address, is it possible for me to still set up a node  on my PC here ?
and like the guide says, in the file litecoin.conf , rpcallowip =127.0.0.1, does that mean that everybody connects to 127.0.0.1 ?
