The point is that BitSafe doesn't know which timezone you're on, so it (shoulds) default to UTC and not UTC+8. As you stated correctly, linux expects the hwclock to be in UTC, so UTC=UTC-> it just takes its time as it is, hence giving the correct local time (if the main OS is Windows). In fact, my Windows PC shows the correct time when runs bitsafe even if i'm on CET/CEST.
Maybe your hardware clock is able to tell the OS on which timezone it's set, or maybe Windows is doing some weirdness. We'll know better with the output from date  Smiley

Which localization are you choosing at boot?

I choose English. The output from "date" command is exactly same as my local time, but it is wrong because it should be local time-8 in my case. Besides, the bitcoin client always complaint the incorrect time and keep saying the block chain data is behind 8 hours even it already downloaded latest block(I compared the block number with bitcoinwatch.com).

UTC, that's why I thought it is wrong. If bitcoin client expect UTC time from OS, it should be my local time minus 8 hours in my time zone.

Now I see your point. The problem isn't on the reported local time, but on the UTC time used by the Bitcoin client. Sorry for taking so long to get it  Cheesy

I'll see how to fix this. In the meanwhile, here's a workaround to the issue tailored for your needs. Just copypaste it in a text file and save it in the same USB drive you installed BitSafe on.

Code:
#!/bin/sh

#Fix how debian reads/writes hwclock
sudo sed -i 's/UTC=yes/UTC=no/' /etc/default/rcS

#Set the timezone
sudo ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Hong_Kong /etc/localtime

#Set UTC time as current(hwtime) - 8 hours.
sudo date -s @$(expr $(date +%s) - 28800)

Once done, you'll have to launch it from /live/squashfs/<filename> before launching bitcoin. Let me know if it works!

I'm having the following error when trying to launch bitcoin-qt in BitSafe:

Code:
user@bitsafe:/mnt/disk$ /usr/bin/bitcoin-qt
tar: ssh: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
/usr/bin/wrapped_bin/bitcoin-qt.wrp: line 44:  3907 Bus error               $WRAPPER_ORIGINALBIN -datadir=$BITCOIN_HOME -nolisten $*

Does anyone have any idea of what this means? And, even better, does anyone have a workaround? Cheesy

What do you mean by prefix? The directory? I've tried. Also, when I use the icon shortcuts, it doesn't work either (the splash screen shows up and closes almost instantly)

I've noticed that the behavior is different if I run bitcoin-qt as root. It starts normally, the splash screen shows up and stays there for a while (in contrast with the immediate crash as when I run with the normal user). While the splash screen is saying "Rescanning...", it crashes with the following error message:

Code:
root@bitsafe:/home/user# bitcoin-qt


************************
EXCEPTION: NSt8ios_base7failureE       
CAutoFile::read : end of file

/usr/bin/wrapped_bin/bitcoin-qt.wrp: line 44:  3436 Aborted                 $WRAPPER_ORIGINALBIN -datadir=$BITCOIN_HOME -nolisten $*

Does this give you any clue?

Does this include armory?  I'm really only interested to simplify my air-gapped wallet setup.

I donwloaded bitsafe, and ran it from a usb stick and connected it via ethernet. First thing bitsafe is asking after startup is if I want to download the blockchain, which I accept. I did this a few times, but after the download is completely finished (I see huge dat-files in /storage/bitcoins) I get consistently the same message
Code:
signature verification failed! This means that your downloaded file is invalid:
the signing key changed or your internet connection is being filtered or altered by
someone or something. Please try again in a couple of minutes


I tried it many times in a period of two weeks with the same result. Any ideas ?

It is a pity that the maintainer of bitsafe is not monitoring it's own product anymore. My former posting is still relevant. Meanwhile I tried running bitcoin-qt without using the quick download method. After two days of downloading the blockchain the program crashed and I cannot restart bitcoin-qt. Dmesg barks

At the moment of the crash db was 842MB.

I also don't know how to upgrade bitcoin-qt in bitsafe. There is no repository available in /etc/apt/sources.list. Anybody knows what repository I need for bitsafe ?
