Primecoin wallet not synchronizing


#1

My Primecoin client can’t find any block source, although my PC is mining fine.

I have collected a bunch of nodes’ addresses in the primecoin.conf file, but to no avail.

I simply don’t understand why it doesn’t work (it used to).

Any suggestions please?

Thank you.

Nemo,

  • no problem sychronizing with my wallet, client version: v0.1.2xpm-hp14-beta
  • 8 active connections to the Primecoin network, as usual
  • had me worried there for a bit

#3

Same here, tested 3 days ago. Synced all the way through.
Check you internet connection or firewall, likely something is blocking it.


#4

Thank you guys for your answer.

It seems to be random.
I noticed that the smaller the blockchain is, the bigger is the chance to “catch” some node.
Bizarre…


#5

Where are you supposed to add nodes in the compiled Primecoin wallet on Mac. There’s a network tab but no place to add nodes.


#6

in the config file, primecoin.conf, you have to create it in the datadir ~/Library/Application Support/Primecoin/primecoin.conf

Afternoon… is there anyway to speed up the wallet sync? I started off 216 weeks behind and, five days later, I am 211 weeks behind. At the rate of a week per day the wallet will take months to sync with the network. For another wallet I was able to download some files and replace the existing ones within the wallet: blocks, chain-something and bootstrap is that possible here?


#8

you can try, this website https://bchain.info/XPM/ , https://bchain.info/XPM/bootstrap.dat

(havent tried it myself)


#9

Thanks for that, I couldn’t find it anywhere. It will still take a while to sync but at least I can run it offline…


#10

I’ve started hosting current bootstrap.dat files https://www.primecoin.me/ too :slight_smile:


#11

I know this is an old thread that I’m reviving but is there any way to make the wallet sync faster?

I left it overnight and still 214 weeks behind, connected to 11 nodes. I added some of those ip’s in the thread to console.

EDIT: got the bootstrap.dat, thanks for that. Now where to put it? Appdata/primecoin/ folder ? i’ll give it a go hopefully will sync quicker.

LE2: Still very slow… tried running primecoin-qt -dbcache=16000 but nothing happens, client still uses 270MB on ram, guess that’s the problem, any way to speed up or make it use more ram? This will take months


#12

such junk of a software, my computer crashed with 50weeks remaining to sync and now the shit wont load at all, have to restart from 270 weeks, fucking bullshit bye bye my 400$ shouldve never sent to this junk in the 1st place, don’t use this pos software or ull cry hard


#13

fyi primecoin is PoW, peercoin is PoS

:innocent:


#14

:smiley:
Finally got it synced, used the hp client and went much quicker then the normal one. Cheers


#15

Thanks for stopping by. :wave:

Side note, I hope you don’t act like this in real life… I think the mildest word for it is “rude”. Have a great life :slight_smile:
