Peercoin v0.5.0 RC1 builds ready for testing


#1

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ppcoin/files/0.5.0%20RC1/

Testnet protocol switch to v0.5 is scheduled for Monday Nov 16.

Note these builds are for v0.5 testnet deployment only, not intended for production yet. Also it DOES NOT address the blockchain fork issue that we are currently working on. If you are impacted by blockchain fork issue on the mainnet, please wait for our announcement on v0.4.1 release in the general forum.


#2

Nice! Thanks for it SunnyKing! I will be following this project very closer! ;D


#3

I am glad finally development is moving on again. Will now probably be here more frequently again ;).


#4

Testnet protocol is switching to v0.5 today. If you are running testnet node, please upgrade to v0.5.0 RC1.


#5

Testnet protocol has switched. Please report any issue in this thread.

Here on Win7 looks the same as SK.

Since it is just a warning, i will try not to redownload the full b-chain.

Also on Win7. Looks all good from here. Minting also works as expected.

i had same problem with client running 0.5 code for a week before the switch, problem with this warning is that it means you are running in safe mode, which in turn means you won’t be able to run many rpc commands. I am not sure whether this warning will disappear by itself, judging by code, it’s triggered when some transaction in your database is not version 0.5

can anyone shed some light into the matter? will the warning go away by itself? why do we have to redownload blockchain?

It will be because you have not fully downloaded the blockchain yet… look at …

blocks" : 117811

compared to the blockcount of 181667 that I was giving.

Download the whole blockchain, restart client if needed once complete or if it hangs on a block and stops downloading. If still error / warning message then yes port here, otherwise this is a false positive error message.

I downloaded the full b-chain and everything seemed OK until I tried to run “ppcoind getblockhash 181677” , when all I got was the error message above.

So I redownloaded the full b-chain and now I can get the hash fdda…

But the debug.log has this almost 30% of the time

i’ve restarted couple of times, but still stuck in safe mode.

i’ll leave it on, but it doesn’t seem like the message is going away… question is why

of course i get that as well, that’s because many people still haven’t upgraded from 0.4.0 and every now and then you get their blocks. I wonder if that’s what causing the stall of the synchronisation of blockchain. shouldn’t we retry getting the blocks from other peers?

I solved the problem by deleting blk* database/* and redownloading teh blockchain.
