Error installing a Bisq exchange

Hello community here,

I was trying installing a Bisq by using yay -S yesterday but ended with error at the end. Unfortunately i have not saved that error log.

Is any problem if i will download .deb file and just will use it without any issues?


That won’t answer your question, however if you’re serious about crypto security / privacy - do all that inside Whonix WM, so nobody would see your real host machine / network address.

It’s Debian based, so you won’t have any problems…

Although keybreak’s answer is likely the best option, coming back to the posted question for a moment:

This is not useful information for anyone who might want to help. Instead of saying “I didn’t save the log” and make people guess what the error was, replicate the problem you were having and then post the error log.
