Installing KMDICE on Ubuntu/Debian


Currently, you will need:

  • Linux (easiest with a Debian-based distribution)
  • 64-bit
  • 4GB of free memory

Get Started

Log in as the user to your system, and issue these commands to make sure your Linux machine is up to date.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade  (and say Y when it wants to upgrade stuff)

Install the dependency packages:

sudo apt-get install build-essential pkg-config libc6-dev m4 g++-multilib autoconf libtool ncurses-dev unzip git python zlib1g-dev wget bsdmainutils automake libboost-all-dev libssl-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libgtest-dev libqt4-dev libqrencode-dev libdb++-dev ntp ntpdate vim software-properties-common curl libcurl4-gnutls-dev cmake clang`

Installing Komodo

cd ~
git clone
cd komodo
git checkout jl777
./zcutil/ -j8``  uses 8 threads - replace 8 with number of threads you want to use or `nproc` variable
./zcutil/ -j$(nproc)

This can take some time.

Now you can start KMDICE daemon to sync with the network

cd ~
cd komodo
./src/komodod -ac_name=KMDICE -ac_supply=10500000 -ac_reward=2500000000 -ac_halving=210000 -ac_cc=2 -addressindex=1 -spentindex=1 &

You might see some outputs in terminal where you started KMDICE daemon.

Activating CC in KMDICE

To play KMDICE you need to run the daemon with the -pubkey= parameter.

First, you need to get a new address

./komodo-cli -ac_name=KMDICE getnewaddress

Second you need to validate the address to get the pubkey

./komodo-cli -ac_name=KMDICE validateaddress <ADDRESS>

And lastly, after you copy the pubkey from the output of validateaddress you can now stop the daemon and restart it with the `-pubkey=` parameter.

./komodo-cli -ac_name=KMDICE stop
./src/komodod -ac_name=KMDICE -ac_supply=10500000 -ac_reward=2500000000 -ac_halving=210000 -ac_cc=2 -addressindex=1 -spentindex=1 -pubkey=<YOUR PUBKEY> &

Now you will be able to play the game using dicebet.
