# but that took long to compile llvm, so I took this route:
#
# these I had installed earlier, perhaps also necessary:
# sudo apt-get -y install unzip cmake libminiupnpc-dev gcc g++
# cmake 3.5.2:
wget https://cmake.org/files/v3.5/cmake-3.5.2.tar.gz
tar -xf cmake-3.5.2.tar.gz
cd cmake-3.5.2/
cmake .
make -j 3
sudo make install
cmake --version
source ~/.profile # or open new terminal
cmake --version
# cryptopp:
mkdir cryptopp && cd cryptopp
wget https://www.cryptopp.com/cryptopp563.zip
unzip -a cryptopp563.zip
make static dynamic cryptest.exe
# testing installation
./cryptest.exe v
./cryptest.exe tv
# install cryptopp
make libcryptopp.a libcryptopp.so cryptest.exe
sudo make install PREFIX=/usr/local
# json-rpc-cpp
sudo apt-get -y install opencl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev
sudo apt-get source libmicrohttpd-dev

You are an angel in my time of need. (well, maybe not need, but certainly want)
I will definitely mark your key down for a donation because you spared me a sleepless night. (dont have ether yet, but premsumably will soon :P )

One question: in the paragraph marked: # installed: (ether, mix-ide) do I need to install those manually, or have they already been installed by this point? What is this paragraph meant to convey?

Thank you so much again!

There is a problem with libjson-rpc-cpp which has a compilation error:

[ 18%] Building CXX object src/jsonrpccpp/CMakeFiles/jsonrpcserver.dir/server/connectors/httpserver.cpp.o
/home/ed/ethmine/gist/cmake-3.5.2/cryptopp/libjson-rpc-cpp/src/jsonrpccpp/server/connectors/httpserver.cpp: In member function ‘virtual bool jsonrpc::HttpServer::StartListening()’:
/home/ed/ethmine/gist/cmake-3.5.2/cryptopp/libjson-rpc-cpp/src/jsonrpccpp/server/connectors/httpserver.cpp:58:25: error: ‘MHD_USE_EPOLL_INTERNALLY’ was not declared in this scope
mhd_flags = MHD_USE_EPOLL_INTERNALLY;

This was fixed in a branch but has not gone to the master yet.
If you change line 55 to:
git clone -b develop git://github.com/cinemast/libjson-rpc-cpp.git
to clone the branch rather than the master this should fix that problem

In LMDE2 x64 many of dependences failed to install hence not available, some packages failed to build.
https://github.com/ethereum/webthree-umbrella repo is obsolete.
For who will try next, I spend some hours to try to fix this, and seems this does not worth it.
Please do not spend time on this..

Wow, I never realized I actually earned some 5$ donation, and probably with this. Thanks, much appreciated.

json-rpc-cpp failed for me in Debian 9.3 Stretch

I solved it by running this...

sudo apt-get install libjsonrpccpp-dev libjsonrpccpp-tools
