Here is a guide you may find useful: Download Ethereum Software Setup Ethereum Software Download Mining Software Setup Mining Software Mine Step 1: Download Geth The first thing you need to do is go to this link download Geth. Geth is the program that communicates with the Ethereum Network and acts as the a relay between your computer, its hardware and ...

EthOS is based on Ubuntu Linux source code which is under the GPL 3 licensing. Therefore, by not supplying the source code to ALL for free they are in violation of the licensing. I will be filing a complaint with UBUNTU about this violation. They are essentially stealing an open gpl licensed software and selling it as proprietary without giving the source ...

You'll need to create a symbolic link from the folder where Mist is looking for the chaindata to the folder where you are storing the chaindata (e.g., on an external drive). You can make a symbolic link with the MKLINK command in Windows, there's a good primer on the matter here: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16226/complete-guide-to-symbolic-links-symlinks-...

From their webpage, I put the features in code format, and in italic my 2 cents on it. On a side note I'm somewhat surprised we can have opinion based posts / question in here but hey...

It seems to be sold as pre-installed SSDs - a convenience option? They also sell their "Digital Download" for the same price as a physical SSD with ethOS on, which is rather... unusual pricing. The ethOS licence is indecisive. They can't decide if they're GPL or... I'm not sure if I understand their "other" licence correctly, but it involves a small goat ...

Just in case if after reading all above comments you are still not sure... All you need to do is, install ubuntu -> google ubuntu if you need help finding it... add ethereum ppa -> Ethereum launchpad get your proprietary graphic driver working -> ubuntu community wiki page apt update && apt install ethminer Mine (optional: run ethminer -h gets you ...

Like galahad suggested. Use init. It used to be --genesis originally but that was deprecated, now its init. Example: ./geth init /path/to/genesis.json Then exit From that point forward, your geth node will start with your genesis.

I am afraid that you have hit an issue which know about but haven't had time to fix yet. We need to run the "Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013" (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784 ) as part of our install process, to ensure that you get these Microsoft DLLs if you don't already have them. We don't see ...

This sounds like a riser issue. Try rotating risers or trying different riser cables. It may fix the issue. Because this is a cross-OS persistent issue, it screams hardware or bios. I'd try updating the bios too, or even reflashing to the current or previous version (be careful, this can introduce incompatibility to some CPUs!) Hope you find the root cause ...

Seems like all of these negative comments missed the point. Things like ethos and PiMP exist for new miners that do not know how to do the setup tasks or who consider the trivial cost worth the time savings. I personally like building a miner from the ground up, but I also have rigs running both PiMP and ethos. No downloading drivers, compiling, creating ...

This is an issue with windows, which is already fixed in geth#develop branch. Please wait for one release after homestead. This one will then include the fix. Optional you can build from the develop branch yourself.

Could very well be a bug. Problem sounds similar to this issue. Have you checked peers/network connectivity and tried running wallet/resources/nodes/geth/geth.exe to check for errors?


4

Answer The short answer to your question is yes you can test your keys/wallets on different OS's. Important Note: KEEP MULTIPLE BACKUPS OF YOUR KEYS IN SECURE/SEPARATE PLACES Other Comments If you are intending to only use geth across your various OS's there shouldn't be an issue exporting and importing the keys as you have described. I made the first ...

You need to open a console, like that: eth --frontier console The -b -i flags don't exist anymore. The docs really need to be updated. Edit: And please update your client to version 1.2.0 or later as soon as possible.

--author requires an argument: you must tell it what the payout address is. e.g. parity --author 0x1234567890123456789012345678901234567890 --rpc --rpcaddr 192.x.x.1 --rpcport 8545 For what it's worth, Parity enables RPC by default on 8545 - you only need: parity --author 0x1234567890123456789012345678901234567890 --rpcaddr 192.x.x.1

Try geth --light Light Sync: Gets only the current state. To verify elements, needs to ask to full (archive) nodes for the corresponding tree leave. You may take a look at this

To only download data from other nodes, you don't need to open any outgoing ports at all. Opening your :30303 to the world is required only if you want to run full node, helping other people to use Ethereum. So the only thing you need - is to allow incoming connections to your host, almost all firewalls allow that by default(or you wouldn't be possible for ...

I did some research and all the information I can find is due to a bug in how Windows handles zip files created on a Mac as well. The initial files most likely had their NTFS encryption set which throws this error when you attempt to unzip it. I also found this answer about the same issue: Encrypted files might need to be decrypted before the files can ...

You can copy your chaindata folder from one user session to another. What you might be seeing is that your old chain is processing blocks one at a time, which is slow whereas your new wallet fast synced. It is a security consideration to disable fast sync after the initial sync phase.

Yo Atte! Low startup time: This is a known problem. In the future is to plan to have archival nodes which allow you to stream the whole blockchain faster to your machine. Furthermore in the future most users are most likely going to use light clients (think Electrum for Bitcoin) that do not blockchain at all. Unfortunately those are not ready yet for the ...

what you did by removing the Ethereum folder is correct. Mist data is located under Windows %APPDATA%\Mist and Mist is normally installed in the %APPDATA%/local/mist folder. so delete also these folders.

On Ubuntu, first, clean the packages: sudo apt-get remove ethereumwallet Then: rm -rf ~/.config/Ethereum\ Wallet/ rm -rf ~/.config/Mist rm -rf ~/.ethereum/geth sudo rm -rf /opt/Ethereum\ Wallet sudo rm -rf /opt/Mist sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/ethereumwallet sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/mist Warning: before execute following command be sure you don't have ...

One relatively easy solution is to install node.js and use the solc npm package. I used it myself when I initially started playing with ethereum contracts and it was a snap to set up. Here are the steps - install the latest version of node.js create a folder for the project add solc package to your package.json file, or use the following package file - { ...

Looks like me being a newbie causing me a lot of problems. Also the Ethereum documentation that is not clear enough for absolute beginners. It turns out I had to have the Geth running to make this contract deployment happen. So i ran this command and had it running and the Contract deployment as well as the Ether transfers went through: Geth --testnet

open a cmd and run testrpc, then open another cmd in the folder you have your Dapp and try to add .cmd like this: truffle.cmd console (not enough rep to comment, sorry)

I'm using geth VERSION: 1.6.5-stable-cf87713d in the Geth --help you can read DEPRECATED OPTIONS: --fast Enable fast syncing through state downloads --light Enable light client mode I'm using --syncmode "fast" Blockchain sync mode ("fast", "full", or "light") I hope it's help.

Try adding --no-precompute to your args list. I was struggling with a similar issue on a very similar setup and this is what got me back up and running again.

The current Mist wallet has a number of open issues on Windows. Fixes are in progress but not available as of yet. Issues that resemble yours: Mist not starting up Ethereum-Wallet-win64-0-4-0 does not start in windows 10 You can help the developers by either creating a new issue (if your problem is unique, which it might be because my quick scan didn't ...

This happened to me and here's what I did to fix it. I'm on Windows 10 and was using NVIDIA CUDA 7.5. I was benchmarking at 17MH and mining at 5MH. By Downgrading to CUDA 7.0 I starting mining at 20MH. Note that I originally installed 7.0 but I believe an NVIDIA's autoupdate updated me to 7.5. So even if you have 7.0 installed, try reinstalling it. Best ...
