I like this coin a lot, it is a pity to let it die, wonder can those who are interested, lets write to the developer and see if we can revive it?

It is still running.

Like all the merged mined coins it is waiting for an up to date bitcoin with merged mining as a secondary chain patches applied so it can update to latest code...

Considering the sheer number of coins GeistGeld puts out per day its exchange rate is pretty high compared to some others that put out less per day:

http://galaxies.mygamesonline.org/latestrates.inc

That is measured in devcoins, which themselves have only yesterday or so started to adjust downward in a belated response to the fact devcoin rates on most web-based exchanges that are popular with bitcointalk folk have been a fraction of the devcoin rates prevailing in the tables and plots found at http://galaxies.mygamesonline.org/digitalisassets.html

Does the price shown at http://galaxies.mygamesonline.org/latestrates.inc look reasonable? (Those are in DeVCoins, of course, for granularity.)

Those prices aare intended for marking up or down based on whether one is offerign to sell or offering to buy of course but for say a million DeVCoins worth or a whole bitcoin's worth or something along those lines just a one percent markup might be reasonable.

(Usually the scripts that use those prices trade on three scales of market, using three different markups, with 1%, if available at all, as the lowest markup, on the largest of the three scales of market the scripts trade on.)

GeistGeld is of course XGG.

So what does 14.89 mean?  How much GG (XGG) would I get for 1 BTC or 1 LTC?  Not sure if it trades in LTC or BTC.  Thanks!

Copied from https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=230141.msg3165333#msg3165333 :

rsnel, GeistGeld is getting to need over 16 gigs of RAM or thereabouts, would you be able to upgrade it with I0Coin's nice new stuff so that all of a suddent it too will fit in little RAM and thus be accessible to many more people? There would be a lot of XGG in it for you if you can because the more RAM it takes the less people left who have enough RAM to run it, its difficulty is thus pretty darn low. So you can pick up oodles of them easy and likely improve their value a lot by doing such an update.

I did the 'dirty fix' on geistgeld (which I did on I0coin, before I developed a clean fix). I have removed auxpows from the blockindex. The client now uses about 550MB.

It breaks:
  • integrity checking of auxpows while loading the blockindex from disk at startup
  • getheaders (which is not used by Satoshi clients)

The code is not recommended, but it seems to work just fine. The 'on disk' format of the database is different, you must rebuild the blockindex if you switch between this version and the original geistgeld.

Okay, it works. Lets get some pools to give it a whirl eh?

Maybe Bitparking can give it a try again?

Couldn't compile it on Xubuntu 12.04 - throws me:

make: *** [obj/auxpow.o] Error 1

How did you get it working?

Cheers.

I know, necromancy is never a good thing  Wink  I'd like to experiment with this client - but I get the same error as mentioned above when using  https://github.com/rsnel/geistgeld/   only I'm using 14.04. I believe it's because of the bdb version used, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have a pre-compiled NIX binary they would care to share?

Thank you  Wink

I have it working on Ubuntu 14.04, if you believe your problem is the BDB version used, you maybe should install the version that it does use?

A lot of old coins do not use the new BDB, heck some of them maybe do not use the latest Boost either. Nor latest QT for that matter.

Just install whatever packages the stuff you want to compile wants...

ldd isn't showing any BDB at all, so I guess I must have neglected to hack the makefile to make it link such things dynamically, so I do not know what version my build happens to be using. But whatever it was, I installed it using the normal Ubuntu get-and-install-packages system.

Do you have BDB 4 installed? I vaguely recall at least some of the old coins wanted that?

Hi markm,

According to the git repo, it uses bdb 4.7 & I can't find a link for that on trusty. I tried using the --with-incompatible-bdb flag with v4.8, but it still failed with the same error.....all my other wallets compile with v4.8 no problem.

Any chance you could upload a copy of yours? sil vous plais? with cream on top?  Grin

Ok then lets move GeistGeld discussion to GeistGeld's thread then...

-MarkM-


Good idea.

I've been looking at this thing again (I know, sucker for punishment), & I'm wondering if it's possible to change it's behavior with p2pool with a setting in the conf file? I won't pretend to understand what most of the code in that conf file do or mean.....or even maybe add something to the p2pool XGG merge mine startup syntax to make XGG less....."jumpy"? Not sure if that's possible though, looking through the p2pool commands......
