Trying to install the Linux wallet. Unfortunately, I run into a compilation error.
Code:
In file included from chainparams.h:9:0,
                 from protocol.h:13,
                 from addrman.h:9,
                 from addrman.cpp:5:
bignum.h:56:24: error: invalid use of incomplete type ‘BIGNUM {aka struct bignum_st}’
 class CBigNum : public BIGNUM
                        ^~~~~~
In file included from /usr/include/openssl/crypto.h:31:0,
                 from allocators.h:15,
                 from serialize.h:9,
                 from netbase.h:13,
                 from addrman.h:8,
                 from addrman.cpp:5:
/usr/include/openssl/ossl_typ.h:80:16: note: forward declaration of ‘BIGNUM {aka struct bignum_st}’
 typedef struct bignum_st BIGNUM;
                ^~~~~~~~~
In file included from chainparams.h:9:0,
                 from protocol.h:13,
                 from addrman.h:9,
                 from addrman.cpp:5:
bignum.h: In constructor ‘CBigNum::CBigNum()’:
bignum.h:61:21: error: ‘BN_init’ was not declared in this scope
         BN_init(this);
(and it continues a lot more ...)

I googled the error message and the issue seems to be well-known with various cryptocurrency wallets - it is an incompatibility with OpenSSL 1.1+ (see here, for example, for Steem). I also found a Cryptonite pastebin with the same error.

It has already been fixed in Bitcoin, the Steem folks say it's this commit: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/commit/b58be132c994b6f9b25cb4a702186ef96104953f

The only workaround I found would be to downgrade to OpenSSL 1.0  - does somebody know another solution?

Thanks, I will try to incorporate that patch into cryptonite, it should be a no brainer.

People using the web wallet please retrieve your funds as the guy maintaining the service is going to close it soon.

I would like to start experimenting with new difficulty retarget algorithms. Do you have any preference? Classic choice is DGW3 but we are free to try anything, even something new. I have some ideas for a custom algo. Might also be good for marketing.

I think it is better to move service somewhere.
Otherwise later you can get very angry people who were on vacations, or elsewhere and lost their coins.

Bitcore has good difficulty retarget algo lowering nicehash threat.

Have you looked at BCH? They had pretty wild network hashrate fluctuations too. No idea if it is a good solution but worth a look at least.

What is the retarget algo of cryptonite and why do you want to change it?
I prefer Kimoto Gravity Well, because I like coins with the retarget on every block. I don't like the calculation of diff on every x blocks because someone might use a lot of hash power and leave the diff at a hight level.

Yes I already had a look at that algo, it's a modified zawy v1b IIRC. It is a very good alternative.

Cryptonite diff retarget is already on every block and of course we will only consider such algos for the future.

I downloaded the mining program, but it doesn't do anything. There's no instructions and it just flashes up a command window that disappears just as quick!

I also tried messaging the "Contact Us" on the website, but seems it either doesn't work, or I'm just being ignored Sad

I own a lot of XCN, I'd like to mine too, but everything feels like pulling teeth at the moment!

Hey, depending on the miner you need different parameters to start it.
I usually build a custom .bat to start them. Have a read around which parameters you need.

Please use this thread or slack for support.
If you make a bat file with "pause" command at the end, you can see the error message which is printed before the window closes.

To the dev(s): I have tried to fix the OpenSSL problem myself applying patches from Bitcoin and Peercoin (unfortunately there were a lot more files that needed to be changed) that eliminate the need for the "CBigNum" class defined in bignum.h.

I managed to compile the client now, but I unfortunately run into a Segmentation Fault after the first block. So I very likely did something wrong. I have only a basic understanding of C++ (or programming in general, I know a little bit of Python but only for basic scripting with a minuscule bit of OOP), so that wasn't totally unexpected Wink

However, if you want, I can upload the changed files to Github into an own fork.

Anyway, I installed the client on another Linux distro where I still had a 1.0.2 OpenSSL version - and I must say I am positively impressed. The blockchain (proof chain/headers) synced in less than an hour, that's awesome for a three-year-old coin, even if it isn't still used much. Good work!

Thanks for your contribution!
Yes please, make a fork so I can have a look at the changes and help fixing the remaining issue.
Three-year-old: well, now it's almost four :-)
