The issue is that pyqt4 and pyqt4-devel are not available on the latest versions of Fedora.

The following prerequisites need to be installed

sudo dnf install git nano qt qt-devel python-devel libtool lmdb swig python-psutil

Other notes.

Armory relies on Bitcoin Core. You can install BitCoin core from It will need to be fully synced which can take a long time “as in days/weeks”. Note that Armory will not work if you have the blockchain pruned. Which means you’ll need about 500GB of space for the BitCoin blockchain.

Nanominer – Lower intensity for GPU

By default Nanominer sets the memTweak option to 1. This slightly improves memory timings. However it introduces a little bit of UI lag. This can be a problem if you are trying to use your computer for other tasks. The simple resolution is to change/add the memTweak setting to 0.


Example config

; Coin to mine.
coin = ETH
; (Optional) Rig (worker) name.
rigName = EthMiner
