Hi I found the problem it was that the namecoin download I used was actually a bitcoin software mislabeled, I got this time the namecoin software from  git clone git://github.com/vinced/namecoin.git
 and things are looking fine, it built a daemon called namecoind instead of bitcoind, and it uses a directory for configuration .namecoin instead of .bitcoin.


The download of the blocks seems to take forever to start, how long does it take for namecoin to start downloading the blocks when it is ran for first time?

The latest version have a bug and doesn't want to download the blockchain.

The current difficulty (94k) makes NMC really not worth mining... why still do it??

Donate if you plan to finance a future global-troll

It is still profitable to mine namecoins, just not insanely profitable for 2 days ... the potential upside for NMC needs to be taken into account when looking forward to future profitability of today's mining also ... dyodd

Master branch is fixed according to vinced, haven't tried myself.

Sergio, try re-downloading either newest master or v0.3.21.91 and open port 8334.

Where do you see current nmc diff is 94k ?

According to http://dot-bit.org/tools/nextDifficulty.php it is just 21k

Am i missing something ?

Yup, take a look at "last" for current difficulty.
"instant" is the difficulty if it would change right now, based on current hashing power.
"next" is the predicted difficulty, after 2016 blocks.

There's a reason why that site is called nextDifficulty. Smiley

Though I do agree that the site is a bit confusing.
21k is the next difficulty. Look at the first row for the current difficulty.

Well, when he checked, it showed 21k. But that was not my point, so I didn't bother fixing that number and confuse the issue.

Yeah, it is really sucking when it takes nearly 5 hours for ANYONE on the namecoin network to find a block...

18301   28/07/11 08:56:40
18300   28/07/11 04:06:44   

But as BTC gets more difficult to mine and the price of NMC continues to rise we will eventually hit that sweet spot to get to block 24000...hopefully sooner rather than later...Need to get the price to 0.0490 to make it as profitable as BTC after the increase in a few days.

True...
But if everyone would think like that, there would be no Namecoin... Payments are very slow now, too many people stopped mining after difficulty increase... ±1900 Blocks to find to next difficulty...

I'm buying Namecoins like crazy but without a network, nobody gets them...

Exactly what Ive been saying all along.  I have about 30% of my little 1.2ghs mining NMC, the rest mining BTC and using it to buy NMC to jack the price up lol. seems to be working so far anyways.  Plus if NMC takes off and gains some real value then long term the profitability of mining NMC is better than BTC.


To many people looking for immediate return on their investment.

that's because the difficulty rules are retarded, they adjust too slowly
