  1. Linux Support Thread

    Did this used to work on Raspbian? Does this mean someone hasn't compiled this for Raspbian/jessie yet? Greetings IronFix! You are most of the way there with the PPA - tweak your apt sources following this guide, and tell the PPA you are on the Trusty distribution. Also note that you will need to install a single dependency manually. It's all in this guid: http://wiki.gridcoin.us/Linux_Downloads_(pre-compiled)#Using_the_Ubuntu_PPA_with_Debian_Jessie I am working on pure debian builds, and have uploaded them to bintray.com/gridcoin. However, in my ignorance I failed to sign them properly, so apt rejects them. That should be sorted this weekend. caraka
  2. New Coin Launch Announcement - GRC - GridCoin

    This is happening in a few hours! NOTICE to PPA users: On April 1st the gridcoin-daily PPA will no longer host production builds of gridcoinresearchd and gridcoinresearch-qt, but rather development builds. Please migrate your main wallet to use the gridcoin-stable PPA instead, unless you want to live on the edge with all your coin. A daily PPA is by definition meant for daily builds of whatever is in the development branch, in whatever condition that happens to be in. Now that we have an active development branch, that is what gridcoin-daily will be used for as of April 1. As of April 1, testnet and beta users are encouraged to run wallets from gridcoin-daily for debug purposes, while everyone else should use gridcoin-stable. Gridcoin-Stable PPA: https://code.launchpad.net/~gridcoin/+archive/ubuntu/gridcoin-stable

    Yes Earl, upgrade first, and only download blocks if the new client fails to sync up. (which is likely, so you probably will have to download blocks)

  7. DPOR stake weight calculations

    Random thought: What if the foundation ran a 'bellweather' investor wallet with say 50k or 100k coins. This wallet's PoS staking time series would be used to calculate an exponential moving average of the number of coins staking on the network. This EMA could be incorporated into each superblock via the NN and used instead of total coin supply for the payout caluclations during the superblock's lifetime, much like the mag in the superblock is used. The EMA favours more recent historical data, making it more responsive than a simple moving average should whales rejoin the network. The EMA would smooth any minor disruptions to the wallet running, with the NN capturing each pip on the curve, making that information availailable to the superblock formation. The amount of coins in the bellweather wallet could be optimised to ensure sufficient pips when network staking dips, with interest earned scraped off and returned to the foundation at some optimum interval.

    I confess I have failed utterly to even get into the chain over the last three weeks of testing. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, but I'm suffering the noob's dilema. I've been stuck on the newbie block loop perpetually, despite deleting keys and starting over.
  9. [Testnet] Research Age

    Greetings I've been away for a week and only just installed the last update. with the testnet addition to my keys, I am officially Invalid. May I also have a deletion of my cpid for a fresh start, please? 9dbd2eb638bfda3dc573a8e5f1ce7a4a We'll have another go at getting into the testnet chain! Cheers caraka

    Difficulty hit zero so I have reverted my wallet to Investor to keep the chain alive. I have been unable to get past the newbie block loop for 5 days. I've now got a bit of interest to catch up with....
  11. [Testnet] Research Age

    Greetings ​I am still stuck in an endless loop of null newbie blocks, despite my magnitude now appearing in the list mag and the wallet itself. ​ Have we had a new superblock since I last posted a few days ago? I have posted a couple of PoS blocks since the mag appeared, but not nearly as many as I was as an investor, and none in the last 36 hours. I'm missing out on the false joy of earning 550 grc per day!
  12. [Testnet] Research Age

    Of course, in my laundry list of things that were 'right' I still hadn't considered the superblock catching up. That is very likely it.
  13. [Testnet] Research Age

    Greetings ​I was staking along fine as an investor in testnet, then decided to get boinc going and add PoR blocks to the test. Everything checks out - CPID, new testnet beacon and beaconstatus, keys, proveownership, list cpids, etc. My mag is 2000, etc. ​ ​However, now I cannot stake either PoS or PoR blocks. I reverted my wallet to investor to test this theory, and it immediately began to stake PoS blocks again. ​ ​I see "Generating newbie block" flash by intermitently, followed by "Mint zero" which stays until the next attempt at a newbie block. ​ ​I suspect my tesnet wallet is getting hung up on the newbie block, because this repeats endlessly in debug.log: ​ ​ ​Cheers

    Adding things to the gridcoin.us page is a mission for customminer (CM). You could also add a page to the wiki Schlumpie!

    I was stuck at 196384 for may hours, so I restarted the client. It rolled back to 196300 and has only got as far as 196304 in the 12 hours since - still not synced. ​ ​@dreibo I did receive your 50K, and someone else's 100k to that address, thank you. Even with the chain rolled back to 196304 the balance still shows, but as I am out of sync, who knows? :-) ​ ​My hope is to get a dozen or so 50k addresses into this investor wallet so that each address can stake interest blocks and help move the testnet chain along. (The opposite of my production wallet!)
