Re: Python Reproducible Builds?

I saw the cccamp 2015 talk by Lunar about reproducible builds. It is interesting to watch, especially if you aren't already intimately familiar with the reproducible build pages on the Debian wiki. While I was already familiar with it, I learned that debbindiff (the binary diff tool used by the Debi...

Re: Warning: OpenSSL Consensus Bug

I'm not sure what you mean by "links above are 'quoted'", can you rephrase? Maybe somename is asking where the binaries we posted came from (i.e. who built them), not realizing that (in the case of the Linux binaries) because of the reproducible builds, who actually provided the binary is not signi...

Re: [NMDF] Namecoin Bounty Cornucopia

I recently solved the AuxPOW puzzle myself: http://blockchained.com/stuff/auxpowpuzzle_solve.py_ Learned something. :mrgreen: I will try and make it a proper module. In the check_pow function you include a comment asking why the byte order is reversed. This page on the Bitcoin Wiki may help explain...

Re: Tried testnet to get started...

OK... bit of a correction... I got testnet coins, but they are immature. Still need the blockchain to get to 126120 before I can spend them... I"ll look into regtest and try to figure out how to generate blocks there. You need Namecoin Core first (regtest was introduced in a version of Bitcoin Core...

Re: Tried testnet to get started...

I think Namecoin testnet has the rule from Bitcoin testnet that resets difficulty if no block is mined in a certain period of time (I think 40 minutes?). So if you'd like to place a bit of mining hashpower on testnet so that blocks are mined regularly, that would be very helpful and would be apprec...

Re: Warning: OpenSSL Consensus Bug

Any hints on how to build a 32-bit statically linked Namecoin Core binary to run on a 64-bit Linux? The first two answers in http://stackoverflow.com/a/17748092/5099450 give a good explanation. I may not have made it clear when I posted that SO answer, but it just builds 32-bit software on 64-bit L...

Re: Officially releasing Namecore

From the reddit post, looks like the bitpay library was released as bitcore-namecoin so it should be a non-issue. In other regards, it will be nice to have some updated binaries on the release tabs of namecore and nmcontrol (even if marked beta) so people can play with them. I think the Gitian desc...

Re: nameGUI - an RPC frontend GUI

I haven't tried nameGUI, but it seems like it is pretty far along in terms of development. It would be a shame to toss it out and rewrite the whole thing using PyQt. Maybe nameGUI doesn't have to be part of Armory. Or maybe it can be kept standalone using Tkinter and we could do something like call ...
