Re: Ubuntu (Debian) testers wanted

ps : for people interested in using the deb package, note that the directory of the wallet is /var/namecoind, so you need to copy your wallet here. Right, but if you test with your valuable wallet please have a backup at hand because for example an aptitude remove namecoind of the package definitel...

Ubuntu (Debian) testers wanted

I forked vinceds tree and have added debian/rules to the src directory. With this definitions you are now able to use dpkg-buildpackage in order to build an Ubuntu package. In theory Debian packages should work as well but it is untested. I have successfully builded on Lucid and Natty (both amd64 an...

Re: 51% Attack - Countermeasure Roundup

I did not go crazy. Shinning the light on a plan is the best way to determine it's merit. I talked to other people in the community and conclude that the plan was flawed. Umm.. yeah. Must be the reason why you was the only one mining on the wrong blockchain after all. Anyway thank you very much for...

Re: 51% Attack - Countermeasure Roundup

It's been interesting to watch. I still don't see how forking the blockchain would have helped as it would have given up more of the original chain over to the "attacker" and even legitimizing the fork later seems to be more of an attack than the 51% exploit.

Re: implications of merged mining / shared blockchain

By the way, does anybody knows what vinced thinks about all this? My guess: Sit back, watch this pile of headless chickens and wait until everybody concentrates. If they managed to focus try to find out the most agreed on solution and implement it. :lol: SCNR. Don't want to offend anybody, but we s...
