Namecoin wallet: no network synchronization

Post by MPetr » Fri Oct 06, 2017 11:49 pm

Hello,

I installed Namecoin Core version nc0.13.99-name-tab-beta1 (64-bit) to Debian.
Then runned it. It's been 24 hours, but the network does not want to synchronize and constantly shows 6 years 19 weeks

Why? :?:

I`am not specialist in namecoin yet but:
Network connection is OK ? What getinfo command shows ?
Do you try to see debug.log placed in the namecoin home dir or start namecoind with -printtoconsole flag ? Maybe there is something that can explain what happenning.
Some time ago I also had problem (not with sync, with transactions -> Unable to register .bit domain) and built 0.14 branch not 0.13. Maybe you can try to do this also.

- dns servers for .bit: dns1.bitname.ru dns2.bitname.ru or dns1.bitname.bit dns2.bitname.bit
- bit domains statistics

Yes, the network works steadily.
I do not have getinfo commands, but Bitcoin and Litecoin wallets on this computer work very well.

Namecoin wallet did not want to work with the Russian interface.
But when I switched it to English, it begun to work.

Why? Perhaps this is a bug in the program?

Where did you get version 0.14 ?
Here, only 0.13.99 - https://namecoin.org/download/

You use Qt (GUI) version ? You didn`t tell that. I thought you use CLI version.
You can run CLI commands in GUI too. Open "Help" and debug window in the client.

On github.
But there are no binary files. I do not want to use this.

Yes. It does not synchronize with the Russian interface.
With English all Ok.

I don`t know how to help you then. Wait, maybe biolizard89 will say something.

It's not obvious to me why switching the language from Russian to English would fix this (I'd expect blockchain synchronization to work fine regardless of language), but we definitely haven't done much testing with non-English languages. Most of the Namecoin-specific strings in Namecoin-Qt aren't localized to any non-English languages.

This isn't because we don't want to support non-English languages, we simply don't have the resources right now to deal with localizations. Maybe in the next 6 months we'll get a chance to look at doing localizations properly.

Anyway, I'm glad you got it working. Is English acceptable for you?
