I had worked with geth, but getting lots of errors like last 1000+ blocks not syncing, so I have decided to switch to parity.

I was following One-line Binary Installer, but was hit by:

/bin/sh: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

and if I use:

bash https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ethcore/scripts/master/install-deps.sh -L

I get:

/bin/sh: 1: cannot open https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ethcore/scripts/master/install-deps.sh: No such file

Secondly , I tried using docker,but the line cargo run --release is giving:

failed to parse manifest at /home/pr.singh/parity/Cargo.toml
Caused by: could not parse input as TOML Cargo.toml:51:9 expected a key but found an empty string Cargo.toml:51:9-51:10 expected ., but found '

What steps do I need to follow. I have worked with geth, and I have downloaded almost all blockchain data (around 1000 blocks left). How can I switch to parity?

  • What operating system are you on? Linux has binaries available. MacOS has a homebrew bottle. – Waqar Lim Nov 2 '16 at 11:19
