After reading the request from the last guy I decided to figure it out myself or work around the problems.

First I found out that namecoind was not starting because it was running under a user that was not root and was looking for bitcoin.conf file in /home/user/.namecoin/ folder.

So I moved everything from the /root/.namecoin folder to the user's home folder.

Then there was a bunch of other issues such as permissions on many folders and files need to be changed for both namcoind and pushpoold

chown user folder
chmod 777 folder

Then timing issues, moved sleeps here and there and boom it all worked just not under root.

not sure if there is a way to make it run the script as root but some people say that's not a good thing to do I guess if the software has buffer over run vulnerably if the app is not running as root he can't do much damage.

Anyhow I guess I will pay myself one BTC.
