Corrupt wallet.dat
« on: December 30, 2013, 01:32:40 PM »

Hi,

I have a corrupt wallet.dat file and have found a working Windows wallet repair tool, but the problem is, I am using Linux.  :(
Is someone able to port this over to Linux for me please?

I have tried pywallet and bitcointools but they can't fix the file.

I am at my wits end.

Thanks,
Rob

The file is gone, maybe install WINE on Linux and somehow repair it from there? It'd be alot easier that way.

Did you try -salvagewallet?

In terminal type "./Applications/ProtoShares-Qt-0.2.0.app/Contents/MacOS/ProtoShares-Qt -salvagewallet"

edit: oops, that's the osx path. You want "<pts location>/ProtoShares-Qt -salvagewallet"

If worse come to worst, could you just grab the private key from the debug console and re-import it on a fresh install? I mean, obviously  try it first to make sure you can do that, but I feel like it would work.

How would he grab the keys from the debug console if the wallet is corrupt and not loadable?

Is it simply not loading at all?
