I'm having a problem with the .conf file. Is there a special way it needs to be created? the way I was doing it was with a text document named bitoin.conf and I'd put a user name and pass in it yet it still doesn't work. Namecoind closes automatically by itself still and if I run namecoind commands in CMD I get this error:

error: You must set rpcpassword=<password> in the configuration file:
C:/Users/Edit/AppData/Roaming/Namecoin/bitcoin.conf

The file is in the correct place. I must be doing something wrong. Any ideas?

If I have been remotely useful feel free to donate:

Most likely the file is having .txt appended to it by notepad.  How to check.

Open a command prompt
type
move C:/Users/Edit/AppData/Roaming/Namecoin/bitcoin.conf.txt C:/Users/Edit/AppData/Roaming/Namecoin/bitcoin.conf

Try to start bitcoind again

Does that path exist on your computer? Is that where you put the file? You do have file extensions showing under folder options, correct?

Tip for Windows users: I discovered that if you create a shortcut to namecoind.exe and execute that instead of the exe directly, namecoind will go into the background so you don't need to have a useless command prompt window hanging around. Smiley

I know this because Tyler knows this.

What is the value of namecoin vs other currencies?
2.How do I trade them?
3.How to set up pooled and solo mining on GUIminer?

While were in development stage lets solve some more problems, like the removal of ssl certificate authority! How about when you register a domain you get a private and a public key for it, then when you go to a website you browser asks namecoin for the public key for that domain, and then a secure connection is established. This system can be implemented into the existing ssl standard. What do you guys think?

Very interesting idea ... I'm listening. Sounds almost too simple (i.e.too good to be true) could be brilliant. Flesh it out some more.

Would greatly increase potential benefits of namecoins if we could do away with those lecherous certificate "authorities

I just stumbled on to namecoin and I am shocked it does not work this way already!  You own the domain via private key, logic would dictate you would not need ssl certs.

Hmmm ... looks like you maybe able to do TLS using a ECDH_ECDSA (or ECDHE_ECDSA) scheme with the namecoin secp256k1 private key ...

This is how I would of assumed SSL would work with the new TLD...

Well as you do know the wallet is a private key like an SSL cert and I don't know how it stores who has what domain but I would assume it based on a public key created by your wallet.  Naturally you would NOT want use your wallet as SSL Cert, thus why not have a encrypted private key stored with your domain name that is your certificate.  If someone steels that private key it's not big deal you create an new one and store it in the block chain using your wallet key.

That just seemed logical to me.

I just started reading about namecoin last night so I may be wrong about how it works.

I wonder if Namecoins has just uncover a flaw in the Bitcoin system.

Just take a look at what happen with Namecoins now, someone just brought up some serious hash power, taking the dificulty from 3500 all the way up to 55k, then retired back to Bitcoins (i guess).
Now Namecoins are on a depresion, pleople stoping mining them, next dificulty is stimated at 16k, but at this rate it will not happen until 07/08/2011.

If you want to crush a crypto currency like this and you have lot of hasing power, i think the best plan is to increase the hashing power up gradually, them retire. Imagine what could happen to Bitcoins if the hasing power goes back to 2 thash/s now...

Actually, a load of peopel moved over because it was more profitable to mine NMC and exchange for BTC at bitparking than to mine BTC! Of course, this didn't last, as you can see...

Has any of you been able to successfully compile namecoind on ubuntu/linux? I got the code off of bluishcoder.com's website.

This is what I get when running the following command:


make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=

Code:
root@enemsi:~/namecoin# make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=
g++ -c -O2 -Wno-invalid-offsetof -Wformat -g -D__WXDEBUG__ -DNOPCH -DFOURWAYSSE2 -DUSE_SSL -o obj/nogui/util.o util.cpp
In file included from util.cpp:5:0:
headers.h:43:20: fatal error: db_cxx.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [obj/nogui/util.o] Error 1

What is db_cxx.h and where do I get it? I tried looking around and can't seem to find it. Any help is appreciated!

I suspect that because bitcoin was the first, the hardware and software to mine with GPUs was not available. Since when namecoin came online everything was in place, so I see no flaw here. The network is adjusting for the huge increase in mining that happened a few weeks ago with namecoins. So thus, the difficulty adjusting back down is just a result of it not being worth mining it at the current time. I suspect when bitcoin's next difficulty surpasses 1,800,000 and namecoin readjusts downward, you will see a rush into namecoin mining once again.

So what? Is bitcoin only about a regular difficulty increase? What does it matter, why should it crush a whole currency? There are millions of bitcoins in the market and loads of namecoins. Trade with bitcoins is not affected nor are the funcions of namecoin. You just had to wait a bit longer for transactions beeing confirmed, thats all. Or do I miss something?

db_cxx.h is included with the berkeleydb dev tools. Just install version 4.6-4.8 and update your include paths and There's a package that includes this that you can install with apt-get, I just forget the name off the top of my head.
