Please, tell us how to install libra step by step, we are not programmers
What OS, Do you have?
You could try to create a Linux Virtual machine, for beginners I recommend Ubuntu.
After that you could try this instructions:
Hi… I’ve been following the last step of the installation. However, it stayed more than 30 minutes on the following message:
Compiling rand_jitter v0.1.4
Compiling regex-syntax v0.6.7
Building [===============> ] 147/477: regex-syntax
I have [ubuntu-xenial-1] running on a google cloud instance.
Is there something wrong? Did it install already?
Try using an instance with more RAM. I compiled ok with 2 CPU 4GB RAM, but got stuck with a smaller instance.
I made a project that is pretty much as simple as it gets step-by-step for Linux: https://github.com/jonrau1/AWS-Libra-Blockchain
However, what instructions are you struggling with? The my first transaction talks through it at a high level, infrastructure management does not have anything to do with programming
Thank you Trusty. I’ve changed the virtual machine configuration to a more powerful one and it went through it.
However, now I have encountered another error, any suggestion? thanks!

fu** I cannot install this sh**
I’ll try again tomorrow with @jonrau1 recommendation using AWS… (do they have a free trial or something). The thing is, it is not working for me on my google cloud ubuntu instance.
getting better at this - getting past the previous error - now a new one:
> error: failed to run custom build command for `network v0.1.0 (/libra/network)` > Caused by: > process didn't exit successfully: `/libra/target/debug/build/network-4f019c121d2769a7/build-script-build` > (exit code: 101)`Preformatted text`
If you’re having problems with dependencies, it may be easier to use the docker image instead
Hi guys… just to share:
I still didn’t have the time to try again and finish setting up my linux gcloud server with the Libra environment. However, I did find the following site on the Github repository which I believe could be useful as well for those newbies like me:
If you on Windows, please refer to https://email@example.com/facebook-libra-on-windows-10-399aee3227ec
Follow step by step, it’s easy
