Ethereum Installing Geth On Centos

The notes over on Ethereum.org when talking about installing geth on a Linux box give instructions using apt-get. Here I have a Centos box and needed an alternative method.

If found that building from source worked just fine using the following steps.

Building

$  sudo yum install golang
$  sudo yum install gmp-devel
$  git clone https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum
$  cd go-ethereum/
$  make geth
$  ls -al  build/bin/geth

Running

$ ./go-ethereum/build/bin/geth

Note: You can move the executable out from the build/bin directory to anywhere you find convenient.
