Is there a version of the monero wallet for the Raspberry Pi Model B that is up to date? I have looked and can only find ones a year or older often with the links 404ing. Or could anyone help me compile one? (specifically the wallet I plan to use a remote node)

As seen on the Monero downloads page, there are no official builds for ARM v6. There are only v7/v8: https://github.com/monero-project/monero/releases

However, Howard Chu has some unofficial builds listed here that include ARM v6: https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/543euo/monero_unofficial_arm_builds/

FYI, these may not work with the current network, especially after the next hard fork when RingCT will be enforced network wide (Sept 2017).

Edit: Hyc released some new binaries! (v0.10.3.1): https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/6eg72k/updated_binaries_for_armv6_raspberry_pi_1/

  • Thanks, however I found this link too when searching and the link for the raspberry pi 1 and zero gives a 404 error. Any idea how I may go about compiling my own? As instructions I found were outdated.

  • I had some problems with my ARMv6 build environment that I only sorted out recently. Can upload new binaries if needed.

    If you're building on the Pi itself there should be no special steps required, just type "make". Assuming you have the prereqs already installed. Of course it will take a very long time to complete, and you'll need around 3GB of swap space. Meanwhile, I've posted a new build: reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/6eg72k/… Had to delete the old builds because I was running out of disk space on my server.

  • I am trying to compile on RaPi too (ARMv6). make outputs loads of errors (unknown type names/endianness/...) and then quits among the lines of make[3]: *** [external/db_drivers/liblmdb/CMakeFiles/lmdb.dir/build.make:63: external/db_drivers/liblmdb/CMakeFiles/lmdb.dir/mdb.c.o] Error 1. What may be the reason? (Same issue regardless if using sources at todays latest commit or at tags/v0.10.3.1)

Reddit User /u/hyc_symas, kindly compiled some new binaries for me they can be found here:



Goto monero forum and search for bitmonerod-node-on-rpi2-working. The source downloaded from git for monero-project/monero should support armv6 builds
