My problem is that my lnd neutrino node can't find any node to connect to, so I'm still struggling with it, but somehow sometime I'll get it working...

Can you upload log file? Is there any error?


There's no particular error, it just doesn't find a node to connect to.

I have several things that seem suspicious in the log, first one is a DNS problem (or something in connection with DNS (what can be the :53: after the router's IP address...)
Code:

I've searched the sourced for this :53: but found nothing, so it's interesting, what's that...


The log:

one more question... did you modify the config.go file again after git reset? You have mentioned that this change is needed to run a neutrino version:

Code:
if cfg.Bitcoin.Node == "neutrino" && cfg.Bitcoin.MainNet {
str := "%s: neutrino isn't yet supported for " +
"bitcoin's mainnet"
err := fmt.Errorf(str, funcName)
return nil, err
}

Thanks for pointing me to the right direction, I haven't modified the file, and as I've checked the log I've posted in the last post, I've realized that I've forgot to run the
Code:
make && make install
after the successfull git pull to install the new version after downloading it.
I've quickly run the install, and now the version of the lnd is really 0.4.1, but the problem remains the same.
I'm looking into the DNS things maybe I can find something with google...

So, I had enough trying to locate a working neutrino compatible node for the LN mainnet (I don't want to run a full node on the raspberry PI, because this is the point of the neutrino node).
So I switched to testnet and voilá...
Code:
lnd –bitcoin.active –bitcoin.testnet –debuglevel=debug –bitcoin.node=neutrino --noencryptwallet --neutrino.connect=faucet.lightning.community
It's running (OK, still "Catching up block hashes"), but at least there's no problem with finding proper nodes to connect to.
So I'll start now with testnet and later on with the mainnet...

really nice. thank you for sharing all this. as soon as i find the time i will try it too. i have an unused pi waiting to be connected. btw: which post should I merit...  Tongue

btw: a first question. i once had a core node running. but the pi was so slow and it wasent able to be up to date with the chain. do you have this problem too?

Thanks Smiley Of course, all of them Tongue

btw: a first question. i once had a core node running. but the pi was so slow and it wasent able to be up to date with the chain. do you have this problem too?
So you mean you have started to run a full node on the pi, let it download the whole chain and sync it afterwards? It takes week or so, because of the size of the blockchain and the realatively slow processor of the PI.
Usually the solution is to run first a full node on a windows/linux PC (with a powerful processor) and let it download and sync the blockchain to an external USB connected HDD.
As soon as it has finished the sync (takes days, still) you can detach the HDD and attach it to the PI and voilá, the PI has to do nothing but continue to sync the daily changes which it can handle more easily.
If you have an older PI, with a slower processor, search for the model if it worths the effort to try to build it, because of the minimal speed requirements.

If you are talking about pi performance(not slow downloading speed) you can run raspberry in cli mode(without GUI). You can find it in raspi-config.

Just managed to spend a little time with the Raspberry PI LN hub project again, it's not easy to deal with things like this, if you have no freetime Smiley
First thing is to update the lnd itself, there's a new version out there, so I need to update it, preferably via git, hope it will be an easy go... I'll be back...

Did you consider running RaspiBlitz? The whole setup process is fairly easy and it shouldn't take you too much time. Check out the readme file for detailed documentation. It is worth mentioning that this project supports LCD displays so that you can easily view the most important information any time you want.

Take a look at some questions regarding running a Lightning Network node here.

Thanks for the info, I've just checked it. It's nice and user friendly, so I'll give it a try if my project won't succeed...
The only (but very important) difference for me that it uses a full blockchain on an external HDD instead of the "light" version (neutrino node), which don't require a full blockchain available locally (uses a trusted node for the blockchain data), which could be really handy if you already have a full node locally and you want to play only with LN on your Raspberry PI.
So I'll give it a try as soon as I give up this neutrino thing Smiley

How is going with your project?
I'm considering order a RB Pi3B+ with a SATA module to hook up one HDD for a full node + LN.
Never played with Raspberry before so it's gonna be a challenge.
How are the temperatures btw. Have to find a good place and build a box with cooling. I really want to start rolling next month.

I used this tutorial to setup bitcoin + lightning

https://github.com/Stadicus/guides/blob/master/raspibolt/README.md

Very easy to follow.

Great, thank you for the info, how are the temperatures btw? Do I need an extra/bigger radiator to cool it, maybe fan too? When everything is done I'll probably will put it in a box and have it on the desk but I want to order everything together, that's why I'm asking if I'll need some more stuff.

You don't need anything more than the stuff listed there. No extra fan or anything like that. Even a Raspberry Pi case is optional. Don't think it will overheat. I've had it running 24/7 for a couple of weeks now. Been working just fine.

Mine is sitting in the cupboard (doors closed) and it's fine there were no problem with overheating or anything similar (I've no HDD attached, I was trying to run a neutrino type hub)
I've bought this copper heat sink, it's for the Pi and it was really easy to stick it onto the chips... it's about 2 EUR, free shipping, so it's not a big deal...
I think you should have some cooling because of the SATA HDD rather than the PI

Yeah, that was my concern too, I'm thinning for something like this for the SATA solution and probably will have it open for a while.
