What should i do?
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 14:59
When you run geth it stops short of 200 blocks? You said last time it just continues running.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 14:59
Yes with geth it just cpntinue going
When i open mist it stuck in 200 last blocks
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:00
When geth is running, at the end is it transferring just 1 block at a time?
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:00
No
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:01
You need to give more detailed answers, otherwise it is taking too long to solve anything.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:02
Ok so i tun geth and it just give me the error that I sent you last time
Its green
It doesnt stop
So i say to myself it doesnt finish so i close the cmd and run mist
But mist just stuck at the last 200 blocks
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:02
Again, you need to answer in a more detailed way. What error, what does it say, etc...?
Is geth running NOW?
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:03
Even my cmd shows it has downloaded block 4,150,000 it goes to 4,149,780
Yes its running now
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:03
Copy the last line to here.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:03
I will send you a video link to shows it to you
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:04
I don't need a video link, it takes too long.
Stop geth and run it without --cache option.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:08
Just fast?
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:09
For the first expriment just --fast, it that still does not work, without --fast as well.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:09
Ok
So its tunning with fast
What shoild i do to see if ot has finished pr not
Cause cmd just keep continiuing
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:10
I said many times "It never finishes"
That is supposed to be this way.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:11
So what should i do? If it never finish?
Shouldnt i open my mist after a time? Cause cmd its not finishing it?
I should open mist when the cmd is running?
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:12
Get it? It is never finished. It has been synced when it it transfers just 1 block at a time.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:13
Ok so even it has 200 blocks left in mist it means i should lunch th app?
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:14
Stop asking the same question. Is geth transferring only ONE block at a time?
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:14
Yes
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:14
Consistently, 1 block, 1 block, 1 block,....
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:15
Yes
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:15
So, it seems it has synced up.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:15
So i should open mist right?
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:15
What is the command line you used to run geth?
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:16
As you said geth.exe --datadir f:\ethereum --fast
The last time it had cache 1024
--fast --cache 1024
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:16
Ok, but we don't know where geth has its pipe.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:17
Yes
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:18
Try running mist --rpc F:\ethereum\\.pipe\geth.ipc
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:18
I open another window and just write mist --rpc ...
?
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:18
ANother CMD window
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:19
Mist os not recognized as an internal or external command
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:20
Use the full path.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:21
You mean cd c users crypto appdata roaming kst bomaries geth unpqcked
?
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:22
Just type in the full path, or cd to where mist.exe is.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:24
The directory namwis invalid
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:25
You don't know where mist.exe is? Again?
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:25
Yes i know
It is in drive d in mkst folder
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:35
@hamostan By the way, try running ethereumwallet to see if that shows it synchronized.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:41
It doesn't show it has synced
it has still 200 blocks left
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:45
It is not pointing to the right place then.
Try "mist --rpc d:\\.\pipe\geth.ipc
and "mist --rpc f:\\.\pipe\geth.ipc"
Do you have two copies of chaindata, 1 copy in F:\ethereum and another copy in D:\ethereum ?
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 15:56
yes
I have copy
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 15:59
You have TWO copies, right?
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 16:00
The main one if in F
The copy is in D
I have mai an mklink into C
For mist
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 16:00
Mist must be looking at the other copy.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 16:00
what do you mean?
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 16:01
It is looking at the copy that is NOT synchronized.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 16:01
But i have maid a mklink from c to d
sorry from c to f
So Any data I have in f will be in c too
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 16:02
I don't know what you mean.
I see. So you do NOT have two copies/
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 16:02
The main data is in F
there is a copy of it in D
I went to cmd and typed
mklink /J C:\Ethereum F:\Ethereum
so it maid a shortcut in C that copeis anything in F
Whithoutusing my drive C space
So now
when mist is running it goes to ethereum folder
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 16:03
How often is the data copied? It may not be synced up.
megacrypto
@megacrypto
Aug 15 2017 16:04
any time that the f changes c will change too
So Tell me your suggestion
phalexo
@phalexo
Aug 15 2017 16:10
run get h --datadir f:\ethereum --fast --rpc --rpcapi admin,miner,debug,shh,txpool,db,eth,net,web3,personal --rpccorsdomain "*"
