Any news about moving code to 0.7x ?
New database is neat...

I have looked at it, but there is definitely some work to do to make that jump, and I am unsure if it will solve the memory problem. The jump from 3.24 (I0coin version 32509 - actually looks closer to BTC 4.01) to 0.6.3 (with doublec's patch and a couple of my tweaks) did not solve the issue.

Maybe I should take another look at just pushing i0coin to 0.7.2. If I (we) are going to make major changes to the i0client, it makes sense just to bring it to the current BTC client level.

That really is the only makes sense option if you can do it that would be great.

All the merged mined coins need updating, so it makes sense to first update the merged mining patch to work with the latest bitcoin before worrying about the details that make the various merged mined coins different from each other.

Basically one can view the merged mined coins as being made by applying two patches to bitcoin, one being the merged mining patch the other being a patch that makes it into a specific coin variant. A patch that changes the name, the ports, the irc channel, the dns bootstrap, the hard coded bootstrap nodes, the checkpoints, the difficulty and reward details, the details of how to form an address from a key, to make the different-looking addresses some coins like to use, and the handshake four bytes that keep the different coins from accidentally crosstalking with each other.

If someone is going to tinker with the MM patch/code, I have a somewhat off-topic question about it, like, is there any technical reason why it couldn't work with scrypt-based coin too? I'd love to find something to MM with LTC, just for the hell of it. Even if it was only LQC (now dead) that I was merge mining it with.

Off the current topic I know, but if someone is already going to be tinkering with it, maybe find out the feasability of it while someone is already poking around?

LTC have different hashing protocol than BTC and other MM coins, it can not be merged.

I kinda figured that I would have to fixed merged mining along with i0coin itself last night.

I was able to modify Bitcoin 0.7.2 into an i0client..too a point.

I was able to compile and run the new i0client, but it would start to throw hash errors somewhere in the ~170000 block area, my suspicion was that it found the first merged mine block.

I am now in the process of trying to integrate the merged mining, at least to the point where the new client can handle it's chain, but it looks like at that point the whole merged mining patch would be in place.

I'm not talking about merging BTC-style hashing with scrypt-style hashing... it is common knowledge they are incompatible.

I'm talking about merge-mining scrypt with scrypt.

Has anyone looked into possible file size problems?  blkindex.dat for i0coin is currently 1.7 GB.  Will there be a problem when it hits 2 GB?

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa366778%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

We need to be sure this update produces 64 bit versions of the i0coin client, both for Windows and Linux.

There is new coin: Terracoin. It is based on newest Bitcoin git.
Maybe use differences between original bitcoin and terracoin as base to found what changes are need? Terracoin has no merged mining with can add more work.

I0coin is a merged-mining coin, Terracoin is not. The merged-mining patches need to be updated to work with the new bitcoin version once the new database type and so on in bitcoin is all in place.

I just updated my bitcoin to use the new type of database, it took a long time but seems to be working. Maybe allow a little more time for any problems to be found then look at updating the merged mining patches. Then all the merged mined coin types will be able to upgrade using those patches.

Meanwhile i0coin difficulty is now so low even CPUs can mine it, difficulty right now is only 7.47686009

Its a good time for people who usually cannot mine anything to snap up some coins, as once all the altcoin upgrade to new code i0coin is probably not going to go away.

Oh boy. Maybe it is forked into more than one network?

I have only two connections, how many do you have?

Also what block number does yours show, mine says 608697

So, K1773R, a memleak, you said? In confirmation code somewhere?


Can you be more specific about where, or what it is leaking, or anything similarly potentially-helpful?

It used to eat twenty-something percent of my RAM, then on a recent restart suddenly its eating close to forty percent, and I am not aware of any particular activity going on that might account for its "sudden" need for twice as much RAM as it had been using for past few weeks or months.

someone used valgrind in combination with i0coind (check out the i0coind thread).

doublec was working on a 0.6 btc based i0coin client about a year ago.

https://github.com/doublec/i0coin

I have gone ahead and forked his repository at mine, as this is a project on my list, but not my top priority.

https://github.com/Hartland/i0coin

One can still get the "official binaries" at:

http://i0coin.bitparking.com/

I will place the 32509 source up on my git as a separate repository later, though I would strongly encourage anybody who wants to work on I0coin, to continue with doublec's work.

When I start on the project again , I will be working from my repository.

I have also grabbed a copy of the windows binary in case the bitparking site goes down.
