Hey Steven,
having trouble syncing again after having my wallet closed for a couple of weeks.
Is there an updated bootstrap I could use?

Will you be releasing binaries for the linux wallet?


hi westloin ...

these syncing issues will be a thing of the past when we get the seednodes fully operational ...

due to my being away and working on the relocation / salvage of thefarm - I will be another week away before I can get back and work ... though I will be doing a lot from the background and backend from now on I think ...

steven has a couple of seeds he has setup that SHOULD respond to the hardcoded requests rom the wallet when it starts to sync - so only he can explain what is happening there ... I'm not even going to try and speak for him - as I don't know Smiley ...

cwi will restart work on our backend systems in a week or so ...

#crysx

Hello westloin,

Sorry you are having an issue with your wallet again. Just a thought, I suggest having your wallet encrypted. I know you might already have it encrypted but, if not, encrypting your wallet helps during sync.  When encrypted, your wallet will be not be staking 'automatically' at launch by default. It will try staking immediately for non-encrypted wallets because they can never be locked from staking with no password set from the encryption process. Trying to sync while trying to stake might be causing issues. If you leave your wallet locked while syncing, this possible issue can be eliminated.

Just for clarification, the Sterlingcoin.org.uk seednodes (seed1.sterlingcoin.org.uk and seed2.sterlingcoin.org.uk) are operational. These are hardcoded into all Sterlingcoin versions, previous and forthcoming. Crysx is mentioning additional SLG seednodes that will be on the CWI network. These additional seednodes are hardcoded in the latest version of the source code and will be in all binaries of Sterlingcoin v1.6 as well. These additional seednodes will be online soon and Crysx has made it a high-priority but, recent catastrophes to part of CWI's operations are understandably a greater priority. Of course, we wish him with the best of luck, dealing with that unlucky event.

The latest bootstrap I currently have is a linear bootstrap up to block height 682683, http://sterlingcoin.org/sterlingcoin-682683-bootstrap.dat This is just over two months old but, I used it recently in my test environment and it was fully synced in a 'few' hours. I would give that a go. Be sure you are deleting your peers.dat file when you are deleting the blockchain prior to bootstrapping. As you know well, be careful not to delete your wallet.dat file.

I will put "a statically compiled Linux wallet" and "a more recent bootstrap" on my to-do list, westloin. The more recent bootstrap will be made available asap. In the meantime, I hope my suggestions might be found useful.

Sterlingcoiners,

I am very pleased to announce, the compatibility problem in the Windows builds have finally been isolated!

Final testing is actively being conducted. V1.6, now v1.6.0.1 technically, will be released for Windows just as soon as these tests have concluded. There is absolutely no reason, no further reason I should say, these test will fail. But is safe practice.

I am sorry for the prolonged delay it has taken to get to this point. Because the person that built the previous version of the Windows wallet is travelling and out of communication, isolating the issue has been a bit of a hunt. I would like to thank Mammix and Bumbacoin for their assistance and testing that has finally lead to the resolution. It could not have happened without their help and it is greatly appreciated.

Do expect Window v1.6 binaries to be made public very soon.

Important announcement!

In an effort to make the Sterlingcoin data written to disk consistently portable across all operating systems,

A new Mac wallet will be compiled and released in the near future with Berkeley DB v6.1. This wallet will not be compatible with the way data is written to and read from disk of your existing Sterlingcoin wallet (including Mac v1.6.0.0). The new version will be v1.6.0.1 and will need the coins from your prior wallet transferred by ways of either private key exporting / importing or sending the coins to an intermedium and then back to the upgraded v1.6.0.1 wallet that utilises Berkeley DB 6.1. Presently existing Mac wallets utilise DB v4.8. Resyncing will be a requirement also because the data is written to disk in an incompatibility way.

Linux users that compile their own binary of Sterlingcoin are advised to compile with Berkeley DB 6.1 if you wish to ever move your data files to or from a Mac or Windows computer. You too will have to migrate your coins into your new wallet and resync. Of course, you are welcome to keep your current copy of the source code, but please compile with Berkeley DB 6.1 at your earliest convenience, if you expect portability. When statically compiled Linux wallets are made, they will be made with Berkeley DB v6.1 as well.

If you do not have an intermedium Sterlingcoin wallet you trust (exchange or otherwise), I will gladly act as that intermedium wallet for you. Please Personal Message me to arrange that. If you do opt to send to an exchange wallet to migrate your coins, please consider doing a test transaction of a small amount prior. Pease contact me with the details of that transaction and we will get it sorted.

Windows users, no action will be required on your part. You can upgrade to v1.6.0.1 at your leisure as soon as it is released. Your upgrade will not need any migration because you are already using Berkeley DB 6.1. Because of the large time differences between developers involved, those binaries are yet to be in a finalised form. I do expect that within 24 hours. Thank you in advance for your continued patience.

If any user has any questions or concerns about this network-wide (minus Windows) migration to Berkeley DB v6.1, please do not hesitate to voice them publicly here in the thread or privately by Personal Message.

The cause was the Windows wallet being previously made with an incompatible dependency long ago and is now being corrected. I apologise for that inconsistency on behalf of the entire Sterlingcoin dev team.

The solution is bring all versions of Sterlingcoin to the same DB version so that the Sterlingcoin data written to disk by all operating systems will be 'transferable' to all other operating systems by ways of just moving a wallet.dat file and/or copy of the blockchain in raw 'data-as-written-to-disk' form (aka 'snapshot'). The aim is to get the entire network using the same Berkeley DB version so supporting data files could be moved between operating systems and work as expected. Windows wallets already use Berkeley DB v6.1 and this is the source of the confusion that has been slowing the v1.6 rollout. Please do understand this is not a 'blockchain' compatibility problem, but only a 'data written to disk' incompatibility across operating systems.

This is the 'path of least resistance' to migrate the entire network to use the same Berkeley DB v6.1, and on a positive note, we are upgrading the Sterlingcoin network! Thank you in advance for your patience while the needed work is done to correct this and upgrade the Sterlingcoin network in doing so.

Sterlingcoiners,


I am pleased to announce, Sterlingcoin v1.6.0.1 for Windows is finally available for download, http://sterlingcoin.org/Sterlingcoin-v1.6.0.1-DB6.1.zip

While upgrading is not required for your existing Sterlingcoin v1.5 to continue to function, because of the many improvements to the code, upgrading is very strongly advised. Please do so at your earliest convenience.

To upgrade, you only need to download and run the new Sterlingcoin-v1.6.exe software instead of your old Sterlingcoin*.exe software.

Backing up your wallet.dat file before any upgrade is always advised.


Enjoy!

The wallet does look neat. However with only two seednodes the network remains weak and tacky, I can put up more nodes but will need to spend another half an hour on building linux binaries. It's unlikely that I will do that because I don't have much free time. I'm busy at the moment, nonetheless, If you need an IOS wallet, feel free to contact me, and I will build the one for you.

Just installed the windows wallet. Nice!
I'm staking my wallet 24/7. Is there another way to help the network?
Is it possible to support by setting up a seednode? How to?

Maybe I should code a Tipping bot, instead of these well-known DDos bots. I would tip your Wallets until these were overloaded.

Hi oneoff, sorry for the slow response. I was catching up on some much-needed sleep after getting the source code finalised for Windows, it compiled, and released.

Thanks for the compliment! Quite an eyeful, no? Wink I am very proud of the results, especially the statistics on the overview. It is a very attractive design that is turning heads on social media and I hope that does bring Sterlingcoin new interest.

Thank you for staking 24/7 and supporting the network by helping to process the blockchain. Judging by the rising network stake weight the past 24 hours, the new wallet has brought on more consistent stakers. This is very good for the network.

It is possible for you to setup and to run a full node. Add "server=1", "daemon=1", and "listen=1" to your config file and be sure your router forwards port traffic to the host. When you connect to the DNS seednodes, they will distribute your IP to other wallets in search of peers, effectively distributing your node as a seednode. But the actual 'seednode' label is reserved for nodes running in datacenters.

Again, thanks for the support and, very glad you like the new wallet.

Mac users,

Your new Sterlingcoin v1.6.0.1 binary is ready. This one built with Berkeley DB 6.1, http://sterlingcoin.org/Sterlingcoin-v1.6-OSX-v1601.dmg

I am very pleased to announce, the new wallet will successfully read your old data written to disk with DB 4.8. It will upgrade the format of the data the first time it reads the files. What this means is, you will NOT have to migrate your coins. Sorry for my previous announcement that you would have to do this, but you will not.

Upgrading is as simple as downloading and running the new software. As with any upgrade, it is advisable to backup your wallet.dat file prior to upgrading.

Is it possible to run a node from an empty wallet. If so I have some VPS that I gladly install SLG wallet upon.

Thanks for taking the time to voice your satisfaction and I am glad you like it, westloin.

Both through the cooperation with CWI, 'in-house' infrastructure, and from within the community, the Sterlingcoin network is actively being expanded. Do expect peer counts to climb.

Great, there is instructions. I'll give it a shot this weekend. Which port and how do I validate that the node is running?

P2P, port 1141 forwarding is sometimes needed for home network routers, but you can most likely ignore that for most VPS setups. Following the instructions should get you up and running.

You can validate it is running by issuing the command:

./sterlingcoind getinfo

Get ahold of me in the slack when you are working on it. I will gladly help.

... datacenters ...


On second thought, we do have many DNS names reserved for the CWI seednodes that are hardcoded in version >= 1.6.0.0. I have started to use some of these names temporarily to help fortify the network while CWI restores operations from a natural disaster that affected CWI's infrastructure. 2 additional seednodes are already up in this manner, bringing the current total of hardcoded DNS seednodes now active to 4.

If any long-standing community member runs a Sterlingcoin daemon on their VPS (or other, i.e. self-hosted) with a static IP, we can arrange the needed DNS edits quickly. If only in the absence of the additional CWI seednodes, I see no reason why other generous community members' nodes can't contribute like this if they want to. Please PM if you are interested in contributing to the Sterlingcoin network in this way.

Thanks! Cheers!
