FeathercoinD / Daemon installation on Ubuntu 16.04



  • Hi, I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to setup feathercoind (daemon) and waller in linux ubuntu 16.04. I’ve gone through Guide section where there are detailed installation instructions, nonetheless, still having errors.

    $ ./featherdcoind
    SSE2 unsupported, optimisations disabled

    and at another instance I get this errror

    $ ./feathercoind
    : Incorrect or no genesis block found. Wrong datadir for network?

    Just to make it clear I’m pretty much well versed and I’ve successfully setup Monero Daemon and Bytecoin. However, this one really giving me hard time. I’ll appreciate if anyone can help me fix this issue.

    First of all welcome to the forum. . 😃

    the first message regarding SSE2 is informational only and doesn’t have any effect on the daemons functionality.

    For the second error message, I assume, that your block chain database is corrupted.

    To fix that I suggest the following:

    • change into the directory .feathercoin underneath your home directory.
    • copy your feathercoin.conf and if you have coins in your wallet the wallet.dat file to a save place
    • change back to your home directory and remove the .feathercoin directory.
    • start your daemon, it will come up with a message, that no rpc key is configured.
    • at that point stop the daemon and copy the feathercoin.conf file back to the .feathercoin directory
    • start the daemon again

    That should enable the daemon to start from scratch



  • Thanks for your prompt response, highly appreciate it.

    the first message regarding SSE2 is informational only and doesn’t have any effect on the daemons functionality.

    ./feathercoind

    pressing enter gives that error and it goes nowhere just hanging. How do I start daemon any parameters?

    For the second error message, I assume, that your block chain database is corrupted.

    There is no prior wallet and I’m not sure how I can create a wallet because I couldn’t find wallet included in the package or do I need to separately install the package fpr wallet?

    When you say ‘just hanging’ does that mean you don’t get back a prompt?

    You can try to check the daemon form another terminal by entering feathercoin-cli getinfo

    Please post the last 30 - 40 lines of the file debug.dat in the .feathercoin directory here.

    Also some information about your OS would be helpful, e.g. the output of cat /etc/issue

    If there is no wallet found by the daemon , a new wallet is created at first run.
