Build bitcoind from source Fedora 22

Disclaimer – this does NOT work.  It’s close, but no love.

As usual there are no good instructions on the net to do this.

First get the source, I already had git installed and I’m actually building Feathercoin instead of bitcoin but it should be the same for both.  Also I’m presuming that you already installed the build-essentials like gcc.  If not at a minium you should have done:

sudo dnf install automake gcc-c++ openssl-devel gcc make

Go to the folder or make a new folder like bitcoin then

git clone https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin.git

Now we need to get and compile Berkeley DB 4.8

wget http://download.oracle.com/berkeley-db/db-4.8.30.tar.gz
tar -xvzf db-4.8.30.tar.gz
Go to /build_unix/
../dist/configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-cxx
(as root) make install

Install the boost C++ files, and the qrencode, And if you want the GUI also add the protobuf:

sudo dnf install boost-devel qrencode-devel protobuf-devel

Now you can run the standard build process thats listed under doc/build-linux.md
