How to compile and install Bitcoin Core on Debian Wheezy

Help please, Staking reddcoin on Raspberry Pi (Raspbian Stretch with desktop)

Hello,
I could really use some help setting up a reddcoin wallet on the Raspberry pi. I've tried executing the following 2 guides, but unfortunatly they keep giving me errors. Guide1: https://www.reddit.com/reddCoin/comments/2b8wqm/tutorial_compiling_and_running_the_reddcoin/ Guide2: http://d-lindemann.de/2017/09/reddcoin-staking-mit-raspberry-pi/
instead of using the recommended "Raspbian (Debian Wheezy). The image file name is 2014-06-20-wheezy-raspbian.img." i'm using the latest " Raspbian Stretch with desktop Image with desktop based on Debian Stretch Version: November 2017 Release date: 2017-11-29 Kernel version: 4.9"
Also instead of using Reddcoin v1.3.1.2 i decided to go with the* Reddcoin V2.0.0.0 (latest version todate)*
every step untill step 6 seems to work fine, but then after executing command: make -f makefile.unix" the following error message appears:
make: makefile.unix: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target 'makefile.unix'. Stop.
researching that issue led me to abandon the guide1 and move to a more recent version of a guide. https://github.com/joroob/reddcoin/blob/mastedoc/rasp-tut.md following those steps lead to a bignum error at 6.3 after excecuting commands
cd src (to take me to reddcoin/src) make (to start compiling i assume)
the bignum error i'm experiencing now seems to be described very well here: https://github.com/reddcoin-project/reddcoin/issues/103 In there i excecuted the following commands to see if my dependencies were correct.
sudo apt-get build-essential   sudo apt-get install build-essential   sudo apt-get install libtool autotools-dev autoconf   sudo apt-get install libssl-dev   sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install db4.8 sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev sudo apt-get install libdb4.8++-dev sudo apt-get install libminiupnpc-dev sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler sudo apt-get install libqrencode-dev cd reddcoin .>/autogen.sh ./configure make
However this did not seem to clear my issue. reading on they talk about it being an issue with libssl in debian 9. with the following link. (at this point i'm noticing how the further i go, the less ground is beneath me to stand on.. and i'm not a good swimmer in unix).
anyways final post there says the following code should fix it: https://github.com/peercoin/peercoin/commit/5b09830e5de0f5105534e69dbf4acffb3255869b But what do i do with this link i have no idea. and that's kinda where my progress halts as i cannot for the life of me find out what to do next to troubleshoot this issue.
So TL:DR I'm trying to use the make command in ~/reddcoin/src however it's giving me BIGNUM errors preventing me from making progress.
I'm using PI model B+, Raspbian stretch latest version plz halp...

Installing software outside of the package manager

Hello all.
I've recently taken an interest in Bitcoins (/bitcoins), and so I've naturally decided to try them out using Bitcoin's own bitcoin-qt wallet software. Unfortunately, debian-qt only appears to be available in the sid (unstable) repositories and I'm running wheezy (stable), so I've had to download the binaries from bitcoin.org and work it out from there.
I've pretty much got everything working, but I'm not sure if there's a preferred standard way to do what I'm doing. I have done a fair bit of research, and it has lead me to believe that /opt or /uslocal is the best place to home user installed programs.
Pretty much, the steps I've taken so far are: 1. Download the tarball from bitcoin.org. 2. Verify it to make sure it's authentic and all that jazz. 3. Extract it (which leaves me with a directory called bitcoin-0.8.6-linux). 4. Find the 64 bit binaries in bitcoin-0.8.6-linux (which are located at bitcoin-0.8.6-linux/bin/64/) and copy them to /uslocal/bin.
That's what I've done as far as installation goes. I have, of course, set up a menu in the application menu for XFCE that leads to the bitcoin-qt executable that's in /uslocal/bin, but other than that, that's all. One issue that is remaining is that in the applications menu, the application for the bitcoin wallet has no icon. Now, I know how to implement icons, but I'm not sure where the standard place for housing icons/pngs is on debian/linux systems, so I haven't bothered yet.
So, my main question is: have I done this right? Is this the standard way to do things, as far as installing outside of the package manager goes?
All of the software I have previously installed has been through the package manager, so this is new territory to me. I'd love to hear your advice -- thank you for reading. :)

Setting up emulated Raspberry Pi for CI pipeline (part 7)

Front makes you look at things from a different perspectives. Docs. Documentation Development guides This tutorial explains how to install and use Bitcoin Core on Debian Linux. Bitcoin Core is the official Bitcoin Wallet from bitcoin.org. I will use the latest version from the GIT repository at bitcoin.org. In order to compile and run, Bitcoin Core depends on some other tools which must be installed prior to compiling : Install some dependencies: Thank GNUtransfer the loan us a VPS and other resources to write this article.. With the twitter api change from version 1.0 to 1.1, the package choqok for debian wheezy and debian jessie to stopped working, luckily the developers of this software (in our view the best twitter client for linux) are working and in the git repository and there is a version that works with the new api of twitter. This tutorial explains how to install and use Bitcoin Core on Debian Linux. Bitcoin Core is the official Bitcoin Wallet from bitcoin.org. I will use the latest version from the GIT repository at bitcoin.org. In order to compile and run, Bitcoin Core depends on some other tools which must be installed prior to compiling : This allows someone to install the Bitcoin-Core binaries, or build from source and use it in conjunction with Armory from the Debian repos. I will admit that it does kind of defeat the purpose of providing a convenient method of installing Armory through Debian if the user has to go download Bitcoin-Core from a website.
