Bitshares frozen sync problem.
« on: December 15, 2014, 05:44:13 PM »

I compiled the bitshares client a few days ago, and now I see that there is a *new* version. I tried opening my bitshares client and it is not syncing and it constantly crashes saying to reset the database.

I have the "wallet" folder and the private key, so how do I upgrade to the new client on the linux terminal? What command lines?

My wallet is not syncing either.

Stuck at block 1283373  - 26 hours ago.

similar problem:

When v0.4.26 client started, it would not sync but remain on an old block 1283580.

I had to start the client with --resync-blockchain option and rebuild local copy of the blockchain.

Seems to be OK now. If the client started it syncs and updates to the latest block.

Are you able to sync using v0.4.27.1 and provided extra checkpoint file: https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares/releases/tag/v0.4.27.1

It's harmless and will be fixed in next version.

This helped me fix a frozen sync issue with v0.5.0. on win 8.1. Was stuck on around 33 days.
I had to close Bitshares client, remove the peers.leveldb folder and the chain folder from AppData\Roaming\BitShares, copy the checkpoints.json folder across, then on restart it sync'd pretty steadily.
I guess in a future release some sort of automatic checkpointing will be more intuitive. Otherwise perhaps more help within the wallet for troubleshooting could be added.

Sounds like there are still blocks floating around the P2P network from the alternate chain made during that bad update ~month ago and you can still get stuck on it. This should die down as time passes but I'll keep an eye out for more reports.
