Re: How to compile Namecoin-Core static binaries?

If you look at your error you'll see which library is missing (libzmq, libboost, etc.) so install them (mostly *-dev packages) and simplify your options (don't use --with-miniupnpc --enable-upnp-default).

You can refer to bitcoin build docs for details.

Re: Confusing Downloads section

Okay I am now starting to understand this. Observations regarding Namecoin Legacy: 1) On the "legacy" download page (https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-legacy) there's a "how to build" link at the bottom. The link (https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-legacy) is correct but as far as I can tell th...

Re: Confusing Downloads section

Before I could use that Python GUI to connect to a Namecoin server on Win or Lin, but now with these existing options (Qt or Core) that doesn't seem possible Both Qt and Core still contain an RPC server, i.e. you can use that Python GUI just like you did before. If you've already tried and run into...

Re: Confusing Downloads section

FWIW, I have a "beta downloads page" PR pending review, which doesn't use package repos anymore (because Namecoin Core doesn't have official packages). Any chance you could help review it? https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin.org/pull/60 Looks good. * Lin - maybe a note to docs (how to build for no...

Re: Design choices for SPV name lookups

Does anyone else have opinions about the merits of the various suggestions, particularly in the context of NMDF or Namecoin Bountysource funding? Also, does it make sense to use BitcoinJ for the verification part of (1)? Doing so allows us to reuse a lot of code if we work on (4) later, and also ca...

Confusing Downloads section

https://namecoin.info/download/ doesn't have arch info unless (which I discovered 10 mins too late) one clicks on Grab Binaries. Having an architecture for which there are no binaries, I tried adding both Debian and Ubuntu repos and after I while I realized that armhf may not be supported. Perhaps t...

Re: #namecoin-dev Meeting Recap/Notes

There's a comment that building from source takes a long time, and a question whether a Gitian ARM build would be useful. Partially because of the former, the answer to latter is "yes". Secondly, older ARM devices (512MB RAM) probably can't even build Bitcoin Core 0.12. So overall it would be useful...

Re: Getting Jekyll deployed soon

> Okay, so another option. One of us (or more than one of us) could simply build the Jekyll site, and then commit the result to the old namecoin.info repo. AFAICT that should work okay, although it means there's some manual labor involved in updating the site. Actually the easiest way is to setup a ...

Re: How much work?

Thanks for these great suggestions. I'm not opposed to running something 24x7, it's just that hosted sites have plenty of space for the entire Namecoin blockchain (if need be), but RAM is usually scarce. At the same time this info doesn't have to be completely up to date (it's not critical to the fu...

Re: How much work?

1) Right, id/. I had spent too much time reading about the other approach.. 2) dnschain.info: didn't know that, the site looks alive and ZeroNet docs mention DNSchain as supported. Okay, so what I'm interested in is what approach could be used to fetch d/ and id/ details the way DNSchain makes/made...
