@anodirium You fix your issue?
Micah Zoltu

He did. Bug in latest version of mist.

@anodirium I cant get mist working in win 7 - it is well known.
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
@jambtt Mist works in Windows 7 I believe. His problem was a bug in the latest version that makes it so it doesn't work for clean installs (you need an existing install to work).
jimeejones
@jimeejones
ok cool, myself win7 64b and another can not get to work - generic windows "Mist stopped working"
...never starts. :(
anyone know what AWS instance type would be best for just running Geth? no mining. Uptime critical only.
i ran a m3.medium and it kept freezing. g8.large fine but bloody hell $40/day
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
You should be able to run geth on a micro instance.
jimeejones
@jimeejones
thats what I would have thought - kept freezing. I will try again.
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
You do need a bit of HDD space since there isn't a lite client yet.
On Windows with Mist (backed by geth) it is using ~21GB. Not sure how much of that is critical.
jimeejones
@jimeejones
yes - I did run out of space... but prior to that the sync kept freezing, perhaps it is more of a problem when catching uip from block 0 - rather then when caught up
Micah Zoltu
@MicahZoltu
And that is mainnet and testnet.
@jambtt Try doing the fast sync.
I had problems with syncing from 0 as well originally.

@jimeejones
it is mission critical my geth AWS runs smooth - it is my event listener for my dapp. thanks i will try that.

@sammy007
wondering why people running geth on AWS where bandwidth is expensive
jimeejones
@jimeejones
i need an always on geth
obviously i could run my own computer -but you know..
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
my geth is always on on 20 USD digitalocean droplet
jimeejones
@jimeejones
keep hearing about digitalocean - sounds good.
no experience with them at all. any pointers?
are they US based? if not = bonus.
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
not so good actually, if you need more "cores", prices are on a moon :(
no idea where they are based
jimeejones
@jimeejones
i dont need to mine - just need a stable geth instance.
stability/uptime is of highest importance.
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
you are good to go with 20 usd droplet then, without any ridiculous data transfer charges
Or Ricon
@rikonor
for a super cheap vm, see scaleway, about $2.5 a month for an arm based machine, also no charges on datatransfers
Sammy Libre
@sammy007
@rikonor geth is not perfect on their ARMs
but I tested only on 32bit
Or Ricon
@rikonor
I see

@sammy007
better take a dedicated Atom on online.net for 16 eur/mon. 8 real cores, up to 16 GB RAM
