This is using two Butterfly labs rigs and nothing was changed. It just out of no where started producing stale and hasn't stopped.

Did you try restarting the mining client? Or powercycling the BFL rigs? Or rebooting the host computer?

Speakin of options other than the client... I want to try using CG miner on a laptop I'm refurbishing and use it for nothing but mining. That said, is there a standalone version of CGMiner that can run on a computer and not say merged with MinePeon which I also use on my rPi.

If so can someone please link me to it because I tried lookingg on github but I came accross a bunch of stuff I did not undertand.

Ty.

Have you seen on this : https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer or this http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer
I'll give the git link a look when I'm done reinstalling the OS, thx. Hopefully I don't need to naviate anything and just need to hit the download link on that pagee which said something about cgminer master when I clicked it to see the file name.

Tried all of them. Even left everything down and off for 2 hours, before rebooting

Ok, so I finally took a look at this and I have no idea how in the hell to run it. I was hoping for some sort of exe or soemthing. Guess I'm stuck with my rPi and the bitminter client, dont get me wrong... they both work great. I was just hopingg to try something different using an old laptop with my powered hub attached to it.

Simple. Just install Ubuntu and download the built cgminer binary. Make sure you follow the ASIC-README to setup the USB permissions properly.

10 stale namecoin blocks in a row.  Is that normal?

No. It appears to be caused by bugs in the Namecoin software. I'll see if there are any active Namecoin developers.

Are you using the namecoin main branch from github yet, or is it the old version?  I'm about to push the updated namecoind to all my other servers (only running on 2 of 6 pool servers at the moment).  I'll take a peek at my logs to see if there's been any noticeable jump in stales for Guild since updating 1/3 the pool to the latest namecoin hardfork version.

I am using the updated version of the original namecoind. It's not related to the update. I've seen this happen a couple times before. Seems to happen about once or twice per year. Usually namecoin was in an abandoned state with no developers, but now it has some, maybe they can figure it out. I sent them some info.

What happens is that namecoind gets into a broken state and I get this in its debug.log at apparently random intervals:

Code:
ERROR: ConnectInputsHook() : name_update on an expired name, or there is a pending transaction on the name
ERROR: ConnectInputsHook() : name_update on an expired name, or there is a pending transaction on the name

Here is one block being created. It seems to be propagating to other nodes, but for some reason they don't consider it part of the chain.

Code:
SetBestChain: new best=749f8868705d1c3d8313  height=148257  work=14693287269252460633786
ProcessBlock: ACCEPTED
ThreadRPCServer method=getblockcount
ERROR: ConnectInputsHook() : name_update on an expired name, or there is a pending transaction on the name
ERROR: ConnectInputsHook() : name_update on an expired name, or there is a pending transaction on the name
sending: inv (37 bytes) <-- Repeats many times
received: getdata (37 bytes)
received getdata for: block 749f8868705d1c3d8313
sending: block (12655 bytes)
^- repeats the 3 above many times

Could it be related to broken transactions? Maybe my node is creating blocks with invalid transactions and accepting those blocks, while other nodes reject them. At least that is my first guess.

looks like corrupted nameindex.dat, need to stop daemon, delete it and wait while it's recreated (may take a while, but faster than downloading the whole chain).

Might not be, but worth a try

Problem solved? I see a new non-stale namecoin block.  Smiley

Yeah, finally working again. Smiley

That did it. Thanks, snailbrain.

I guess it will be hard for namecoin devs to track down this issue. It might happen twice a year on a busy pool.

Maybe I can automate detection and recovery from this. But it's not the easiest failure to detect.

Anyway, issue worked around for now, namecoins being minted again.

Personal question for Doc; are you a namecoin kabillionaire now? Back in the day when the pool was still free and without donation option, I remember many of us donated most or all mined namecoins, they were almost worthless anyway and I even questioned the wisdom of bothering with merged mining. Since then, as we hoped, BTC rate has gone through the roof but namecoins doing even better and now selling for $10 each is something I would never have believed. I can get my head around $1000 per BTC, even $100K one day. I still cant get my head around namecoins being worth more than almost nothing Cheesy.

Anyway, did you have the foresight (or plain luck) to sit on them, or did you sell/trade most of them?

I think a namecoin being worth more than 1% of a bitcoin is a strangely high price.

But I also think most other alt coins being valued above zero is even stranger. I guess it will take a few years for people to realize that the value of a bitcoin clone, with no new features that matter, is zero, and for most of the 500 alt coins to die out. Forking a project on github doesn't make you a developer, nor does it instantly create millions of USD value. You have to do the work and create something useful. Which namecoin has done. Let's hope the new namecoin developers can fix bugs and push things forward. Smiley

Hello fellow miners ,
I wonder if any one has a simple way of getting a wallet for namecoin or a video instructional for a windows vista computer ?

I have tried in the past but I could never successfully follow the directions and end up with a place to store the namecoins I am mining here .

This man spiked my interest .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjN4PA8Zp2M&feature=em-uploademail.

I would convert them into btc for you.   put them in this address


MyQpF1yqNDHH2znc74vifXBWr5xsRKL2oJ    


 the exchange I use   is giving about .0085 btc for 1 nmc  so 10 nmc are about .085btc  and 100 nmc are about .85btc  




https://vircurex.com/welcome/index?referral_id=756-12066


this one is an exchange but they have fees. the link is my referral link I get tossed a few bucks for your joining.  

if you goal is cold storage of nmc  in a paperwallet why?    I would rather do that with btc.  but to each their own.
