Post by onassis » Fri Jan 25, 2019 4:17 pm

Hello, I was renewing some domains in my portfolio,
but several stayed in "updating" after I closed the portfolio
and now it does not open! I'm on Mac,
I'm shown "The Namecoin-QT application can not be opened"

Thanks!!

1.) Which macOS version are you using?
2.) What error message do you get if you start the program from the Terminal.app?
- open Terminal.app
- enter
find ~ -iname "namecoin-qt"
- copy the answer to the Terminal.app command line and add -?
- What error do you get?


Example session:

Code: Select all

Terminal.app
$: find ~ -iname "namecoin-qt"
/Users/cassini/Downloads/namecoin-qt
$: /Users/cassini/Downloads/namecoin-qt -?
dyld error: Library not loaded, libprotobuf.9.dylib

Hi casssini, thank you so much

my mac version is: 10.13.6 High Sierra
my namecoin-qt version is: v0.3.80.

In the terminal it appears:

iMac-de-David: ~ david $ find ~ -iname "namecoin-qt"
find: /Users/david/.config/configstore: Permission denied

Sorry for the delay, I had not seen the mails

Now it opens, but when updating a domain name it stays in
"pending status ..." and the domain is never renewed


Thanks!

ok, this is an old client version. It fails sending about 50% of the transactions to the Namecoin network. I have to look up my old problem solution notes on how to update the client version safely and then broadcast the pending transactions. I'll send you the instructions in a few days.

I have been trying to get hold of you, but no luck so far.
Send me a PM or an email message for sorting this out.
