Official Ubuntu builds
« on: November 01, 2014, 04:07:05 AM »

I would like to "vote" on maintaining official ubuntu build/ppa/something with GUI.
For competitors it isn't a big deal. Somehow for bitsharesx it is!

Some says that maintainers cannot be trusted thus we have to compile for ourselves. But at the same time windows binaries are happily being put out for downloading. That is a heresy:)

As I recall there was a quite fat (2000pts) bounty on autobuild with Jenkins feature. Was this brilliant idea scrapped already?

http://jenkins.bitshares.org/

Not sure who's maintaining it though ..
With the changes to the superDAC this will hopefully be reactivated .. until then BTSX is totally separated from I3 and managed by DacSunLimited .. We have no clue why they don't publish packages for ubuntu :(
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

I've offered to help them set up secure auto-builders and PPAs, but they don't seem to be interested. See my PPA in my signature for packages. As for whether or not you can trust me, you already do if you run Ubuntu or Debian.I have direct upload access to Debian and Ubuntu directly takes my packages from Debian and ships them in Ubuntu.  You are already running my packages on your system for some crucial libraries (e.g., zlib). I posted a signed message in my delegate thread that is signed with the same key that is already on your machine (if you run Debian, otherwise you can install it by installing "debian-keyring" in ubuntu).

Thank You for the work done on both Bitshares PPA and Debian.
Will surely delegate You as soon as I get this gui client working :)

In fact I have already sourced your ppa into my system.
But there is only cli tool and no GUI version to please my laziness.
(I believe there are many like me. I could have been using bitshares but since there is no ready-to-use tool I just don't).

I hope 'dacsunlimited' will recognize your fruitful efforts and agree to incorporate your auto-builders.
If they don't it will be a clear message that they are doing a sabotage on the project!

OHHH! Thank you for pointing out the GUI isn't set up right... I'll fix it right now. The GUI is included, it was just installed in the wrong place...

I directed DSL to this thread. Thanks maqifrnswa.
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

We are not doing a sabotage on the project, being surprised people are saying in this way. And confusing about where does these misunderstanding come from.

There is a lot of Linux distributions, as we announced before, we are not going to have Linux GUI Support currently, it is not our high priority. Most of the users working on Linux have the ability to built from source following the guide.

But we're very grateful for the work from maqifrnswa, the only thing left is to get the package verified and published I guess, I'm not familiar with PPA, please file an issue on https://github.com/dacsunlimited/bitsharesx/issues, and then we can discuss and get it done.

(..)See my PPA in my signature for packages. (..)

Dear mqifrnswa!
Could You please check on the quality of the most recent bitshares build for Ubuntu?

1. After launching the program it complains immediately:
JSON Parse error: Property name must be a string literal [show details]

2. In bottom right corner the connection indicator always shows 'Not connected'


This bug was closed by valzav with explenation that it is hard to replicate.
https://github.com/BitShares/web_wallet/issues/420

But I obtained same results on two separate machines:
a) Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
b) Ubuntu 14.10 (almost fresh install)

I installed win7 in virtual environment to check for comparison and windows version doesn't report these json parsing bugs.
My thought of the day is that before cluttering GitHub more with bug reports we could first check the build if it is compiled against correct libs, etc.

The same happens to me. From the package from PPA and as well if I build myself as I posted here https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=11237.0

I'm starting to think that we might miss a dependency or something.

To me it seems the GUI (more precisely, the web_wallet) was not compiled properly

It was confirmed by 'nathanhourt' at issue #67 to be related to web_wallet component.
https://github.com/BitShares/qt_wallet/issues/67

The bug was redirected to web_wallet repository as issue #420
https://github.com/BitShares/web_wallet/issues/420

Coder 'valzav' closed it as difficult to replicate. I have just replicated the bug in three simple steps:
- installed fresh Ubuntu 14.10 into VirtualBox
- added the ppa and installed bitshares
- run Bitshares
After unlocking the wallet issue 'JSON parsing errors' and issue 'Not connected' showed themselves right away.

thanks for pointing it out, I can't reproduce it however. My version just loads fine, can log in and operate normally.

What architecture and Ubuntu version are you on?
Code: [Select]
$ bitshares_client --version
{
  "blockchain_name": "BitShares",
  "blockchain_description": "The Future of Banking",
  "client_version": "v0.4.24",
  "bitshares_toolkit_revision": "377b57766dfa07e9a95952503217de31636ab9ee",
  "bitshares_toolkit_revision_age": "51 hours ago",
  "fc_revision": "e6b43a6149b8974ba1d3f683b9e01916a841c1de",
  "fc_revision_age": "70 hours ago",
  "compile_date": "compiled on Nov 12 2014 at 00:56:38",
  "boost_version": "1.54",
  "openssl_version": "OpenSSL 1.0.1f 6 Jan 2014",
  "build": "linux 32-bit"
}

EDIT: I see you are on utopic (14.10), I don't have that... so perhaps there's something there... I'll look into that

One more thing, maybe try:
Code: [Select]
$ mv peers.leveldb peers.levedb.old
$ mkdir old
$ mv *.json old

and let the client rebuild them?
