  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    I’m setting up a test environment. I’ll repeat the test (viewing 0.11 database with 0.9.6.2) after I’ve resynced and, this time, saved uncorrupted / synced 0.11.2 database

    Merging commits from 0.9.6.2 to 0.11.2 procedure

    Install a mergetool. On Linux, meld:

    sudo apt-get install meld
    

    Configure your mergetool:

    git config --global merge.tool meld
    

    Then, iterate in the following way:

    git cherry-pick ....
    git mergetool
    git cherry-pick --continue

    @wrapper

    I have seen that several times dunig my tests with 0.9.6.* . The ORPHAN BLOCK COUNTER going up to
    ProcessBlock() ProcessBlock: ORPHAN BLOCK 751.

    It seems there was a number of forks happening, which where resolved later. I can’t remember the block height where it happened, so I can’t tell, that is is the same block where the messages started to show up

    @wrapper said in [Dev] Feathercoin 0.9.6.2 * Maintenance fix & Issues notes for 0.11.2:

    Building 0.11.2 - merge should be LogPrintf(" space …

    Noticed this warning, that could be fixed. Noting.

    wallet/wallet.cpp:2746:27: warning: invalid suffix on literal; C++11 requires a space between literal and string macro [-Wliteral-suffix]
    LogPrintf(“pkExtracted=%“PRIszu”:%s\n”, pkExtracted.size(), HexStr(pkExtracted).c_str()); //Is empty

    This will HAVE to be fixed for the next release, the main issue is the MacOS build will fail on this warning… linux and windows the build continues with the warning.

    @AcidD Hate to pile on another request, but can you target at least El Capitan compatibility for the next official build? The 0.9.6.1 build cannot run on 10.11, so I’m stuck with looking at a yellow upgrade banner for a while. Did you compile on 10.12 for a reason, deps, etc.?

    @AcidD Sorry, that wasn’t a very “community effort” post I made… “Ask not what Feathercoin (dev’s) can do for you, ask what you can do for Feathercoin” 🙂

    I’ll try my hand at compiling the official 0.9.6.1 release on 10.11 (physical Mac, not VM’s!) given your instructions here. 'Bout time I did some Mac compiling, been living in the linux world too long. I do have a 10.12 system to test forward compatibility.

    DIY, baby!
