([offtopic] Maybe someone else could try on an ARM compilation of the original client)

I would simply be a cool thing to have a 4 W p2pool full integrated host. Smiley

I'm looking to do an ARM build on a raspberry_pi once they are released, which should be any day...

Update:

I have successfully compiled the bitcoind original headless client for the ARM.
I currently working on making the whole p2pool system running.
The rasberry pi would need a new compilation as it uses a different processor.

Maybe i make a new thread afther i have successfully completed the system
and offer a downloadable SD card image.

Sorry for all the offtopic here.Will move to a own thread.

the raspberry pi has a downloadable qemu package so you can do dev work now on I think debian, ubuntu and fedora remix.

I just added added a new item to the Electrum feature list:

Electrum is ubiquitous: You can use the same wallet on several computers. All instances of your wallet are automatically synchronized, thanks to "type 2" deterministic key generation. In fact, your wallet is "in the cloud", and that cloud is the Bitcoin blockchain!

Hello,

I've been using Electrum for few weeks now and it is my favorite desktop wallet! I'd like to thank developers for this great peace of software!

I have few questions if someone can help me out:

1. i don't understand why new addresses automatically appear in "Receive" tab.

2. Is it normal that "description" string (while sending BTCs) does not become "label" string in "Contacts" tab?
Official client works this way and I quite like that feature.

3. Why there is no icon for "password" in bottom right corner (XP port)? I see one in Ubuntu.

4. Is there any plan for OSX version? That would be great!

@ThomasV: will this new feature allow 2 or more Electrum clients to be open at the same time and also to be used at the same time or would that cause problems?

Thank you.

thanks! I will try to help you.

1. i don't understand why new addresses automatically appear in "Receive" tab.
your wallet generates new addresses everytime one of the last five addresses of its list is used.
this in order to ensure that all instances of a given wallet are synchronized.
(you can increase this parameter if you think that 5 in not enough, by editing the wallet file.)

2. Is it normal that "description" string (while sending BTCs) does not become "label" string in "Contacts" tab?
Official client works this way and I quite like that feature.
Problems occur when a given address is used in several transactions.
However, we could display a the description as "default label" for adresses that have no label. would that suit your need?

3. Why there is no icon for "password" in bottom right corner (XP port)? I see one in Ubuntu.
this is probably a bug.
can you post a screenshot?
also, do you use the binary version, or the python source?

4. Is there any plan for OSX version? That would be great!
I believe that the python source code can be used on OSX. please share your experience if you have tried and encountered problems.

it is not a new feature, it has been there for a long time.
yes, you can open multiple clients at the same time. you can open the same wallet on different computers, or different wallets on the same computer.

That would be perfect!

I use binary on XP. It is the same with Cameyo or BTCurious build.
There is also no program icon (but there is a nice icon in startup menu).

I am not a programmer, so i would need step by step guide to try my luck : )

the lock icon is a svg, while other icons are png; this might have to do with it.

I love that electrum can be used as a simple text only client (something I need) without needing to have a long running process there. The one thing I couldn't immediately do (though I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to fix if not yet supported) is being able to import public addresses to monitor, without having to also store their priv keys.

Did I just miss the way to do this?

no, you did not miss the way to do it :-)
ovidiusoft was willing to implement monitored addresses, but I think he's been too busy lately.
for the moment I am concentrating on ithe client/server protocol.

I need a good excuse to look at the source code, so I might take a stab at that if I get a little off time.

Hi,

I noticed one small thing. If bitcoin amount is exact integer (1, 2, 3, ...) the amount is shown as "1." or "-2." instead of "1.0" or "-2.0".

I noticed that some servers arent updating. For example i made a payment that should appear in my wallet but even after 10 confirmations at blockchain.info nothing showed up. I then chose a new server electrum.pdmc.net and it showed 206892 blocks. And my money. I then switched back to electrum.novit.ro and it showed 206844 blocks. And my transactions isnt included obviously.

I dont know if the new server is forcing a transaction fee so if i will keep him but that servers arent updated doesnt work in my opinion, so a solution has to be found i think.

Thanks!
Sebastian

Quick questions:

How can I use a wallet with a name other than electrum.dat and on a custom location?

Is your wallet encryption as safe as a TrueCrypt volume?

Do you plan an official "portable" release?

Thank you.

You can run electrum with a parameter:
electrum --wallet=/wallets/mywallet.dat

It isn't possible with the windows version, it doesn't support command line.

How long can it take for a transaction to show up in an Electrum wallet? I purchased a gift card from kevwang95 for BTC1.5 to this payment address: http://blockchain.info/address/1LHmGT39uLJYSfeKVbgUP5vAgrhf1GaqMK

I sent the payment at 9:09PM EST, and the blockchain shows two confirmations. kevwang95 says that he doesn't see the transaction in his history tab in Electrum, and the balance is 0.

I don't have much experience with Electrum, so I just want to make sure he gets the payment for the sale. Does it take a while for it to show up in Electrum?

EDIT: kevwang95 sent me this screenshot of Electrum showing that the payment still hasn't shown up after 2 1/2 hours. It looks to me like he copied the correct address, which is the one I sent the payment to. Blockchain currently shows 13 confirmations, and my wallet has full confirmation of the payment being sent. I'm thinking there's some sort of glitch or technical issue with his client, but I don't have any experience in using it. If anyone can reply with some help to give him, or if they can PM him directly, I'd greatly appreciate it.

there was a server-side problem. I restarted my server, and the transactioni should show up now.
