Install Ubuntu Desktop from ISO on XEN - Server Fault

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.
Supports

Hardware

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.
Functionality
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.
BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR COINS, ONLY TEST WITH WHAT YOU ARE OKAY WITH LOSING IF YOU USE THE MAINNET.

I've included some documentation on LIT I created which includes information I found to be useful: https://github.com/e-corp-sam-sepiol/vertnode/blob/mastedocs/lit.md

Vertnode | Automated Vertcoin Node Installation Script

https://github.com/e-corp-sam-sepiol/vertnode

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.

PLEASE NOTE THIS SCRIPT MAY GIVE AN ERROR. THIS IS THE NATURE OF TESTING. PLEASE REPORT YOUR ERRORS IF YOU WANT THEM TO BE FIXED/RESOLVED. THANK YOU FOR BETTERING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SCRIPT.

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 192.168.1.5 -l pi For example, this command uses ssh to login to 192.168.1.5 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)

Freelance needed Virtualizor / KVM

Hello everyone .

I don't know if this is the correct sub-reddit but you all are the experts... (thanks very much for you help ) 

I am looking for some hired help, with setting up Virtualizor by Softaculous. This is a project I am doing for a Non-Profit. They have there hearts sold on Virtualizor. I have no experience with this software. After a few failed attempts I realize it is time to call for help.

Task that need to be completed
1) install Virtualizor on Hetzner Server (prefer Ubuntu as host Os)
2) configure bridge networking.
  1. (we have IP's with MAC addressing already)
3) Build 2 Vps Running Webuzo /Ubuntu version ISO

If I can find the right person I have some future work. With setting up Power DNS and some site design.

Send me a quote to do these tasks and amount of time you need to complete? I will gladly pay with Pay-Pal or Bitcoins.

I'm making a custom distro (CJBuntu), what do you want on it?

It will be based on Ubuntu, with version numbering in the form of (Ubuntu year)(Ubuntu month as A or B, for .04 and .10 respectively)(CJBuntu release). So, a version based on the upcoming Ubuntu 12.04, if it was the third release of CJBuntu, would be 12B3. The first version will be 11B1.
Obviously for version 11B1 there are a lot of things that I could do or include, but I'm trying to keep it at a minimum. I'm going to be removing things like Unity and Quadrapassel and including cjdns, but there's other software that I could include too. I'd like to do some of that, but keep it manageable so I can release this ISO quickly. I'd like to hear as many ideas as possible, and cull it from there. Don't feel bad if what you want doesn't make it in, there's always another release!
Things I'd like help with:
What I'm adding to vanilla Ubuntu:
What I'm taking out:
Stuff in the next version (I hope):
What will probably never come default in CJBuntu, but can be installed by people who want it:
EDIT: The first version will be 11B1, not 10B1. I always meant to base it on Ubuntu 11.10 so I'm not really sure what I was thinking of when I typed that. I'm going to blame it on being tired all day. Bleh.

Make Ubuntu fork with POS software built in.

What I would like ideally is a linux distro I can install to have a working POS system for a coop grocery store.
I found this: http://www.wedge.coop/is4c/ Several coops are using it, but it is not updated and doesn't seem to have any activity. I can't actually get it to run because so many packages it needs can't be found. This appears to be a project to improve it: https://github.com/maxolasersquad/FLOSS-POS
Is there someone out there who would be able to take this roll it into an Ubuntu iso that can be easy installed and administered on various PC's to use as checkouts (and a server) in a grocery store?
I am willing to pay some bitcoin for this. Not sure how much, tell me what can be done, and give a quote. I will likely want to make numerous upgrades to the system once it's working as well.
