    Thanks guys :) For anyone else who happens to get lost, you can enable an executable in Ubuntu 14.04 in the GUI by right clicking the binary->properties->permissions tab and clicking the box that says "enable as an executable"

    I am using Ubuntu 14.04. I am getting the following error:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    libminiupnpc-dev : Depends: libminiupnpc8 (= 1.6-3ubuntu2.14.04.1) but 1.6-precise2 is to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    Could you assist?

    Anyway one please?

    I am getting the following error:


    Warning: There is an incompatibility in the new RC4+ wallet due to the larger keypool.It only effects encrypted wallets, but can cause a loss of data in rare situations. Please create a new wallet and move the funds from this wallet.

    and I am not able to install a new wallet. What should I do?

    The message just states that you should delete your wallet.dat file (after moving your funds to e.g. a exchange) and let the client create a new wallet.dat after restart - no need to install new software at all :)

    Close wallet and open again, it should continue. Alternatively you can try to bootstrap it - just follow instructions described there https://github.com/UdjinM6/darkcoin-bootstrap

    If a much older wallet version has trouble to sync, I guess the bootstrap can help it sync?

    I guess so... bootstrap.dat is simply a blockchain in one file and no indexing so wallet should just verify blocks from it instead of downloading one by one and calculate needed indexes. (This should work if block format hasn't changed since that old version. If block format has changed then old wallet might refuse to accept these blocks.)

    When you say the "block format", do you mean the protocol version? I'm curious to learn if someone hasn't updated their wallet and still has some old version like v.9.x.x.. With no privkey to dump, they have to load up this old wallet, and the bootstrap can help then that is great.

    Well, protocol number changes might not be related to blocks but to messaging system for example (introducing new messages or changing formats of old one). Strictly saying protocol versions are only digits helping to do first and very simple check is another peer complying some conditions or not. And it can be faked so it's not safe at all to rely on it. What really matters is how blocks are verified to be accepted. Smth like this
    https://github.com/darkcoin/darkcoin/blob/master/src/main.cpp#L2897
    https://github.com/darkcoin/darkcoin/blob/master/src/main.cpp#L2760
    If an old wallet isn't aware of a whole procedure it will not be able to build the same chain (will reject blocks from bootstrap.dat).
