    Since launching the masternode payments a few intermittent forks have popped up on the network. This is not as serious as last time, but is still a concern for the Darkcoin network, so we're reverting the changes for the time being while we discover the cause and do further testing.

    Please update to either 10.10.2 or 9.10.2. Thanks!

    Is this going to be a quick fix, or is it going to take a bit of work and testing on the testnet?

    I'm curious if the error was caused from people running different builds of the master node?
    How would the network validate that a master node is up-to-date with the latest build, in addition to config file specifications?

    Do we need to also revert this change in p2pool?

    "In the file p2pool/data.py, on line 171 change "masternode_payout =
    worker_payout / 10" to "masternode_payout = worker_payout / 5"

    This is a very noob question, but I followed chaeplin's guide for setting up an ec2 instance.
    I ran the following command when it was still 10.10.1:

    git clone https://github.com/darkcoinproject/darkcoin.git
    into /usr/local/src/

    how do I revert/update to 10.10.2?

    I've tried running the same command but I get the following error:
    "fatal: destination path 'darkcoin' already exists and is not an empty directory."

    I just downloaded the pre-compiled binaries in this post over the binaries on my system worked like a charm. But if you must recompile from git, I would assume you need to delete the existing git clone directory, try "sudo rm -R /usr/local/src/darkcoin" and then rerun your git clone command.

    The protocolversion is increased for newer masternode versions, which makes the protocol incompatible. The only versions capable of joining the network were 0.10.10.0 and 0.10.10.1 - all other versions were ignored.

    sounds great, how does that work? Should I put it on my server, generate address, get the test coins and off I go? :)

    Make sure your port is open (9999)
    And add nodes. Darkcoin.io, p2pool.darkcointalk.org, and so on.

    added
    addnode=23.23.186.131
    addnode=50.16.206.102
    addnode=50.19.116.123
    addnode=98.165.130.67
    addnode=54.242.50.205
    addnode=50.17.98.53
    addnode=54.225.43.37

    and downloaded it very fast and all working now. Never thought about adding p2pool.darkcointalk.org and darkcoin.io lol

    Maybe make some piece of code that automaticly connects to darkcoin.io. Then forking problems should be lot less as everyone is kind of forced to connect to the right wallet.

    The problem with that, as I see it, is that it would break one of the fundamental paradigms of Darkcoin and Cryptocurrencies in general. That is that they are decentralised. If you make a connection to darkcoin.io a necessity, then you introduce a single point of failure. If the Fed's wanted to come after Darkcoin, then all they would need to do is come after darkcoin.io and shut it down. :cool:

    i dont mean continuous connecting to that node. but just as first connect, get the version number/blockchain header or so and then p2p download the rest. Same as torrents are downloading with magnet links. 1 (or more) places to find the correct adress of the actual files.

    Yeah, that's a start. Post your testnet address in the forum to get some coins for masternodes, get them up and running and try to reproduce the issue we had yesterday - seems setting up some solominers and pointing some MHs at them is a good start as well.

    Just like DNS, that info should be available from any node.

    I've noticed many questions regarding how to set up a server for Darkcoin, Masternodes, and so on, on these forums. I've even asked a few myself! So, in the process of learning this for myself, and ultimately running a Masternode, I learned a lot and kept very detailed notes which I believe would valuable to others.
    I've put together complete step-by-step guides for setting up a secure "hardened" server, installing Darkcoin (with optional Masternode instructions), and upgrading to newer versions as needed. I will be putting up instructions for P2Pool-drk as soon as I have the time.

    Here are links to the instructions:
    Setting up a secure "hardened" Linux server
    Installing Darkcoin (with optional Masternode setup)
    Upgrading Darkcoin to a newer version.

    I hope this helps someone!

    I didn't even realize there WAS a FAQ. After your post I looked around here on DarkcoinTalk and couldn't find one. Then I searched on Darkcoin.io, and found it...and found a "Coming Soon" page; I guess that is what you are referring to.
    I think it's important to have an informative and up-to-date FAQ. I am a bit busy now, both with work and with working on setting up a P2Pool (and writing a tutorial for P2Pool-drk as well), but would be happy, as soon as I have the time, to work on a comprehensive FAQ. I could submit it to whomever is in charge of posting such things, and he/she could take it from there...or however you guys would want to work out the details. I feel that Darkcoin truly represents the not-too-distant future of crypto-currency, and also feel very fortunate to be involved with it at such an early stage. I would be both happy and proud to help in any way I can.
