A few months back, I had asked about hardware and power requirements for running a node and what would be the best configuration to setup. Finally I took the advice of the community and have setup my 8 year old laptop as a Bitcoin full node. It has pentium dual core processor and 4Gb ddr3 ram. Also, a non functional keyboard, mouse, dvd drive and the battery is dead. Was going to throw it out but now its running the full node for a couple of months on linux and is very stable with port forwarding enabled as well. Now I am planning to run a lightning full node on it as well and would like your suggestions on the same. What is the simplest way to get a lightning node running on ubuntu linux?
