Update: I might not have started in the right place. Comparing docs with the Youtube version to make sure no prereqs missed.
Update 2: I’ve gone through what’s available on the site (many pages are generic placeholders). I do pass the “pocket version” test. At this point I’m stuck again.
Update 3: If you need “g”, create your own g file in your users bin dir (such as /home/user/go/bin) and copy the sh script from here ( g/g at next · stefanmaric/g · GitHub ) Don’t forget to make it executable. You may also need to run “g install latest”
I have Linux, Sysadmin and AWS background, doing OK on those points.
I here for fun trying to build a node and have a chance to earn some coin on a lesser known network.
The YouTube guide and other directions don’t work in April 2021. I’m trying to fix go.
Specifically I’ve been trying for a few hours to get “g” to install along with “go”. G is refusing. I get this far:
You are about to install g, the gluten-free go version manager at:
The following environment variables:
$GOROOT: /home/nodeuser/.go $GOPATH: /home/nodeuser/go $PATH: /home/nodeuser/go/bin are going to be set in: bash: /home/nodeuser/.bashrc bash: /home/nodeuser/.bashrc
warning: it appears you have a go installation already at: /usr/bin/go
g can still be used alongside and the go versions managed by g will take precedence over your current go installation, only for the current user (nodeuser). For more details, see: https://github.com/stefanmaric/g
Do you want to continue? [y/N] Y
STARTING NEW SHELL TO LOAD G-INSTALL…
I did try completely removing go and starting over a couple times and that doesn’t help.
I get dropped at that point and manual attempts to try and install g are failing. Any thoughts? Thank you!
