v0.11.1 - InstantX Release

Holy, this MN is nominated over and over and over.

Address belongs to miningpoolhub. I suppose they manipulated their mining darkcoin instance to nominate their own masternode, whenever they find a block.
Only works when enforcement is off (granted, it has been off for a while now)...
There is a huge problem with blocktemplate and masternode pubkey used for payment.

I have 3 nodes synced, all 3 keeps nominating the same and unique pubkey as masternode to pay (each node a different one)...

There is definetly something very wrong in .22...
Mandatory Update to 11.1.23

After thoroughly testing masternode payments on testnet, we were surprised when they didn't work properly on mainnet and caused issues. As it turns out someone found a way to alter the masternode payment messages in transit and cause this behavior on mainnet. This has been fixed in 11.1.23, but the changes are not compatible with the prior versions, so we will require all users (pools, masternodes and normal users) to update. It's greatly appreciated that you update as turning on fair and enforced masternode payments is our highest priority currently.

* This update does not require a cold restart

Trying to update via github, but says I'm up to date. I'm on Arch Linux trying to update using "yaourt -Syua --devel"

I presume this simply means that github has not been updated yet, and I just need to keep checking. Is this correct? (Just using the client--no masternode yet--sadly:sad:)

make sure you are on master branch. which AUR package are you using? reinstall darkcoin-git with yaourt -S darkcoin-git and it will pull the latest from git.
If I -reindex on my remote part because the blockchain stuck do I have to start it again form local or is it fine after all is synced?
Just updated to .23

Closed local client, restarted new one, told me my block database was corrupted... Do I want to reindex. It has happened on every version since .20 - So I decided to just kill the whole directory and re-pull chain cuz re-indexing isn't fixing it.

2015-02-12 22:10:38 *** System error: CDB : Error -30974, can't open database wallet.dat

As that's happening, I get this old thing again... Error about my wallet.dat, which is a new file, while downloading the chain... IF experience is any indicator, this wallet.dat error will stop happening as soon as chain pulls successfully.

It's not actually an error with wallet.dat, it's got something to do with sorting forks/validating blocks, but manages to give a totally nonsense error message about wallet.dat. Does this even when I delete wallet.dat and it makes a new one...
Thank you yet again Vertoe. Yes I was using darkcoin-git, and the command "yaourt -S darkcoin-git" got me up and running this time.

2015-02-12 23:37:30 *** Failed to read block

Second time in less than 30 minutes, the wallet crashes with the above output in debug.log. Running 11.1.23 and mining locally with my measly 24mh. After force closing the wallet it gives me the corrupted block database detected popup and you have to rebuild the database. Not sure if this is where you report this or not so don't shoot the messenger :p
ghmmm...... Interesting... What does searching for "Using wallet" give you? And are you sure this "Library" in Finder is actually "~/Library/" and not "/Library/"?

EDIT: ignore the stroked one

2015-02-13 00:37:50 Using wallet wallet.dat

updated to 23
but still no wallet.dat in sight ?!
(where is that dam thing hiding ??)

I would really like to get some MNs back online but i can not
as i do not ant to drop another wallet.dat into this (as I do not even know where the other ,running one is hiding ?!

Edit 1:
I just erased everything , starting from scratch

Edit 2:
everything back on track
fresh fresh + clean clean

I just updated 7 nodes to .23 with no problem. But I have one that consistently fails with "Error: Failed to write block." I've deleted peers.dat and have issued a reindex, but no luck. Any other suggestions to bring this sucker back online?

EDIT: I end up getting stuck at "blocks" : 217086 every time.
EDIT2: I decided to wipe out the entire /.darkcoin directory and start fresh on the server. Seems to have done the trick, but I sure would like to know what was going on.

Whow ... was that related to these 'fake/changes" download links on BTC (what Tante mentioned) ??
