Debian -- Packages

Please recommend me a Seedbox

Hello. I'm seeking seedbox recommendations to help bootstrap the swarm on, a torrent tracker for biological sequence and medical imaging data. Thanks for any advice you can provide.
Are you OK with direct message offers from vendors?
Yes, but only to discuss tax-deductible donations of server time on behalf of BosLab, the 501c3 community biology lab where originated.
What are your main reasons for getting a seedbox?
I'm in the process of launching a semi-private science tracker for genomic and medical data, and would like to seed as much content on as fast connection as I can afford. I'm currently seeding from two residential locations.
Do you have any specific requirements?
I'm seeking a 1 Gbps uplink with as much storage and monthly transfer capacity as can be had for about $20 per month. The storage cap is the limiting factor right now, not the transfer cap.
Are you looking for a shared or dedicated solution?
Dedicated is preferred, but shared is okay if it helps meet the requirements above.
Are you looking for managed or unmanaged solution?
Please describe your Seedbox experience:
My current setup is a Transmission instance seeding about 5,000 torrents from a home server on a residential connection, that I access and manage remotely behind a SOCKSv5 proxy. I would set up an rTorrent/ruTorrent instance on the seedbox in a similar way (Nginx reverse proxy to daemon listening on localhost).
Currently with a provider or used one before?
What is your Linux experience?
Professional development and systems administration for a sizeable public-sector organization.
What is your monthly budget?
Payment preferences or requirements?
PayPal or debit preferred, Bitcoin not preferred.
Do you need support for public trackers?
The content distribution model is novel as far as I know: an authenticated private swarm on Tier 1, with three public backups on Tier 2 and forthcoming support for FTP/HTTP seeds.
Routing: Tell us your continent:
I'm currently seeding about 1–2 Mbps from North America and would prefer a European location.
What kind of connection speeds do you need?
At least 150 Mbps guaranteed with 1 Gbps burst available.
How much monthly bandwidth is needed?
2 TB is a reasonable limit because the data is rather niche.
How much disk space do you need?
4 TB is a good minimum, as I've allocated that much space on my home server.
List some features you are looking for:
The ability to install custom ISO images would be nice, for example to use OpenBSD-current, but it's not a strict requirement. I'll make do with whatever Linux images the service offers, preferring Debian.
Anything else you think we should know?
Thanks for helping me out!

What if Bitkey but for Monero

I just learned about bitkey, and boy am I impressed. Like my actual point is that I think a critical fatal flaw in the crypto economy and bitcoin network is the reliance on centralized hardware manfufactures whose proprietary closed garden systems and also of course centralized exchanges. I think it's just a matter of time before Trezor and LedgerNano become targets, or some rouge intelligence agent releases to the darknet some tool to crack them or compromise them.
BitKey is a bootable system image based on Debian containing everything you need to perform highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. You don't need to install it to a hard drive because it runs live from RAM. You just write the ISO image to a USB drive or burn it to CDROM.
I'm a die hard open source linux open system advocate, and I think that bitkey is the right step in the right direction. And my point being, anyone who's a developer could make some version of their own to be audited by the public community. Eventually we would have a handful of publically trusted builds by different developers, and this could be done for the major cryptos, or any crypto, but especially monero since it barely has hardware support.
But the design of bitkey being an iso image on a cd rom or a usb, set to maximum privacy with two computers and a third device that scans QR codes. (on a side note there are security issues with QR codes, so that is one area for improvement).
I'm trying to imagine a world where people can't get safe devices, can't get hardware wallets, and need an open source alternative to compromised desktops. Obviously something as advanced as a linux OS build spread across three devices for airgapping has a learning curve, but UI can increase over time.
We have to remember there are a lot of tyrants in this world who want the monero and btc network to fail, want the fungibility and privacy and cash like nature fail, want to backdoor everything, they want to know if you're hungry, if you need to take a shit, before you even know, Minority report shit, but sadly unironically, and increasingly so.
Windows is the devil obviously, Apple even more so. We need a world moving towards Linux, RVISC chips, raspberry pis. Even the best intentions of cypherpunk and monero are very very vulnerable without the hardware to back it up. So there really needs to be a move towards this.

Vertnode - An automated solution for installing Vertcoin node(s) on Single Board Computers

Hello Vertcoin Community,
Eager to contribute to the Vertcoin Community I began creating step by step walkthrough guides on how to get a Vertcoin node up and running on a Raspberry Pi, Raspberry Pi Zero and Intel NUC. Along with information to get a Vertcoin node up and running was also optional steps to install p2pool-vtc.
I decided that while this step by step guide might be helpful to a few, a setup script may prove to be useful to a wider range of people. I have this script to a point where I think it may be productive to share with a bigger audience, for those who are brave and have this hardware sitting around or like to tinker with projects; I invite you to test this setup script if you are interested, if you run into errors any sort of verbose console output of the error proves to be extremely helpful in troubleshooting.
The script was designed to produce a “headless” server... meaning we will not be using a GUI to configure Vertcoin or check to see how things are running. In fact, once the server is set up, you will only interact with it using command line calls over SSH. The idea is to have this full node be simple, low-power, with optimized memory usage and something that “just runs” in your basement, closet, etc.
Why run a headless node on a Single Board Computer?
The idea is to have this full node be simple, low-power, with optimized memory usage and something that “just runs” in your basement, closet, etc.
Required: USB Flash Drive 6GB - 32GB
Please note that the script was designed for Single Board Computers first and looks for an accessible USB Flash Drive to use for storing the blockchain and swap file, as constant writing to a microSD can degrade the health of the microSD.


All of the hardware listed above is hardware that I have personally tested / am testing on myself. The plan is to continue expanding my arsenal of single board computers and continue to add support for more hardware to ensure as much compatibility as possible.
It is worth noting that LIT can be ran with multiple configurations, the ones displayed in the Post Installation Report reflect values that run LIT with the Vertcoin Mainnet. Please be aware that the Vertcoin Testnet chain has not been mined 100% of the time in the past, if you make transactions on the Vertcoin testnet that do not go through it is likely because the chain has stopped being mined.

Vertcoin Testnet Coins
I've included some documentation on LIT I created which includes information I found to be useful:
Please visit the mit-dci/lit github repository for the most up to date information on lit:

Vertnode | Automated Vertcoin Node Installation Script

Recommended: Use Etcher to install the chosen OS to your microSD card / USB flash drive.

If you intend on installing Ubuntu Server 16.04 to your Intel NUC please use Etcher to install the .iso to your USB flash drive.

Ubuntu Server 16.04 Setup Details

You can use different clients to ssh into your node. One option is using PuTTY or Git Bash on Windows which is included in the desktop version of Git. If you are using Linux you can simply open a new terminal window and ssh to the IP address of your node (hardware you intend installing the Vertcoin node on).
You will need to know the IP address of your node, this can be found on your router page.
ssh -l pi For example, this command uses ssh to login to using the -l login name of pi. The IP address of your node will likely be different for you, in this example I am logging into a Raspberry Pi which has a default login name of pi.
A brief list of commands that can be used to check on the Vertcoin node status:
vertcoin-cli getblockchaininfo | Grab information about your blockchain
vertcoin-cli getblockcount | Grab the current count of blocks on your node
vertcoin-cli getconnectioncount | Grab the current count of connections to your node. A number of connections larger than 8 means that you have incoming connections to your node. The default settings are to make 8 outgoing connections. If you want incoming connections please port forward your Raspberry Pi in your Router settings page.
vertcoin-cli getpeerinfo | Grab the information about the peers you have connected to / are connected to
vertcoin-cli getnettotals | Grab network data, how much downloaded/upload displayed in bytes
tail -f ~/.vertcoin/debug.log | Output the latest lines in the Vertcoin debug.log to see verbose information about the Vertcoin daemon (ctrl+c to stop)
Thank you to all who have helped me and inspired me thus far, @b17z, @jamesl22, @vertcoinmarketingteam, @canen, @flakfired, @etang600, @BDF, @tucker178, @Xer0
This work is dedicated to the users of Vertcoin, thank you for making this possible.
7/20/2018 Thank you @CommodoreAmiga for the incredibly generous tip <3

Easy UASF Node in Debian VM tutorial

So if you have a moderately powerful gaming desktop with a Quad-Core CPU like an i5 or better and 8+GB of RAM, you can easily run your own little UASF node in the background. Once it's done syncing with the network, you won't even notice it's there. Here's how.
You will need :
The following assumes you know how to install Linux in a Virtual Machine
Step I. - Installation. Go through expert install and set up a base system with only ssh server enabled. For partitioning, you can do just one big disk and everything in one partition, but if you happen to have a computer that has both SSD's and HDD's, it would be optimal to create two virtual disks and use a small one for the OS on the SSD and a larger one on the HDD in a custom mount point for the blockchain. Reboot and ssh into the server.
Step II. - Build requirements. A few things need to be taken care of. First, you'll want to edit the /etc/network/interfaces file and set up a static IP. Once that's done, stop by your router and make sure that traffic on port 8333 is forwarded to your debian VM. Then, install some packages we need :
apt update apt upgrade apt install build-essential autoconf libssl-dev libboost-dev libboost-chrono-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-test-dev libboost-thread-dev libevent-dev git libtool pkg-config 
The next one is a bit more annoying. We need Berkeley DB 4.8, and it's a little old. It's packages are in the Debian Squeeze archives, so in the /etc/apt/sources.list file, we need to add :
deb squeeze main 
Then remember to update again, and install the thing :
apt install libdb4.8++-dev libdb4.8-dev 
If you intend to also throw on xorg and a UI, you will want Qt as well. Otherwise skip this last step.
install libqt4-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libqrencode-dev 
Step III. - Build time
#Starting from /home/yourUser git clone -b 0.14-BIP148 cd bitcoin ./ ./configure make make install 
That's it! Well, mostly. Start it with
bitcoind -daemon -disablewallet -datadir=/whereveyou/want/youblockchain 
...and wait about thirty hours to sync with the network. You may want to visit the /whereveyou/want/youblockchain directory and create a permanent bitcoin.conf in there. To enable RPC calls to the server and get it to accept bitcoin-cli commands you'll want to use it to create a usepassword and copy that to your user's /.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf.
Minimal bitcoin.conf example
daemon=1 listen=1 disablewallet=1 server=1 rpcuser=bob rpcpassword=bob's password 
Security I recommend you disable password login and use private key authentication only on ssh, and also restrict iptables rules to the bare minimum that must be allowed for this application. You will need this in your iptables script :
# Allows BITCOIN traffic from anywhere -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8333 -j ACCEPT # Allows RPC calls to the bitcoin server from localhost -A INPUT -p tcp -s --dport 8332 -j ACCEPT

[Guide] Python-Trezor on cold offline Raspberry Pi

I am happy to report that the python-trezor command line scripts work successfully on a Piper which is really a Raspberry Pi running Debian wheezy.
This does require you to connect your Piper online initially, so I recommend buying a new 4GB SD card and flashing the piper firmware if you have already used piper to generate cold offline keys. You'll need this for the hexagonal screws and this for the wiring
You can download the latest firmware ISO here and here is how you burn the image
From there I did sudo apt-get update and installed the Trezor dependencies including cython, libusb, python-trezor, cython-hidapi, trezor-common and ran sudo python build/install as per these 2 guides edit : and pip install trezor as per stickac (I have not yet tried the electrum 2 beta parts of the guides, as I don't require cold offline electrum 2)
This still does not install the english wordlist which you will need to do manually.
Edit : Adding BIP39 library should also install english.txt
You might also want to download my hidden passphrase/PIN entry python-trezor fork
Lastly I needed to unplug the USB mouse from my keyboard hub, in order to provide Trezor with adequate power.
Confirm that everything is working
./ list
Pull out the Ethernet cable, and never plug it back in (without first wiping the SD card)
Congratulations you can now initialize and restore Trezor - in a fully cold offline environment - and if you wish, provide your own entropy
Expert tips :
Delete your shell history
semi-securely delete files off SD flash
Version 2 :
I have added support for the latest electrum 2.0 beta, trezor support and btchip support
Update to the newest github versions
navigate to /python-trezor and git pull navigate to /python-mnemonic and git pull
Update libraries
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install -f 
Install dependencies
sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-dev pyqt-dev-tools python-pip sudo apt-get install python-usb libusb-dev sudo pip install --upgrade pyusb 
Install btchip support
mkdir btchip cd btchip get sudo bash git clone cd btchip-python sudo python install 
cd samples python cd ../btchip python should bring up a GUI setup wizard if core.usb is setup properly
cd ../.. git clone cd btchip-c-api mkdir bin make cd bin ./btchip_getFirmwareVersion 
Install electrum 2.0 Beta
git clone cd electrum sudo python install pyrcc4 icons.qrc -o gui/qt/ python sdist --format=zip,gztar electrum 
File > New > Hardware wallet. Both Trezor and btchip work as they do on OSX, apart from the Pi's slow CPU taking ages to generate the HD tree and Sync.
At this stage a Pi is too slow to receive btchip's 2fa OTP confirmation code, with the auto-type saturating the text buffer. I'm confident Nicholas can fix this in firmware. Edit: an ipad2 + Apple CCK is too slow to buffer the seed about 1/4 times. Edit 2: an iPhone5/retina iPad mini + Lighning to USB camera cable works with btchip with iOS 8.1 with selected text editors.
You can use to restore a BIP39 mnemonic, however btchip's HW1 is unable to support on-device BIP39 seed+passphrase, but this feature might be added to the electrum plugin later.
I don't know if greenaddress CRX will work on piper, there doesn't seem to be an official armhf build available from google, and the latest sudo apt-get install chromium version is v22 whereas Chrome is at v38. (it might be possible to download and pack/drag-drop the extension manually in developer mode)

why do distro install every remote thing possible

hey linux torvald i just want to browse the internet and facebook and play fantasy football but you install all these open socket and make me mad
sshd running on a debian workstation distro vnc servers nfs servers rpc cups samba
So using a out of the iso mint distro on a network with windows machines is worse, once they have their apaches and ssh keyrings and nmaps with tcpdumps and mac address listeners.
I made bitcoin too for them looking at old drives and never got one cent and they burnt my graphics card
