Took A While But I Did It ๐Ÿ˜…

2๊ฐœ์›” ์ „


Just a simple update...

I ran into some issues along the way, when isn't things complicated...

I started off strong and the rig was torn down, cleaned, and reassembled with the new 1TB SSD in 2 hrs.... I detailed the cpu fan and took the power supply completely out to hit it with compressed air ๐Ÿ˜‰

Installing Ubuntu was easy enough taking nearly 2 hours to pull updates while installing, the usual.

Had the rig up and running in 4 1/2 hours and started into the witness steps and boom ๐Ÿ’ฅ the tooth I woke up with sore started pounding... ran to the store for some pain killers and oragel... witness was syncing by 5 1/2 hours ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

So thinking I was good I went shopping for 2 hours but when I got home I decided to play with hotbox for installing a second witness since I have the space now... killed 2 hrs and just couldnโ€™t figure out how to manage the screens or anything... decided I preferred the screen sessions for the time being ๐Ÿ˜‰

Went back to try load up the wallet.... thinking I was good and it wouldnโ€™t load ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ figured I had all the keys saved but forgot about activating the witness with wallet... also noticed some how I followed an old tutorial link giving me a super old version... it was top Google listed ๐Ÿ˜… I might have to try do something about that ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyways... long story short after an hour of fucking around I had the proper version installed and syncing again ๐Ÿ˜… I dunno it was watching the active blocks when I ctrl+c to shut it down but would not resync or replay after the update.

Then couldnโ€™t fire up the wallet, missing or something... spent an hour or so trying to install and update and blah... ended up finding a work around installing version 7 and referencing 6 to 7 I think ๐Ÿค” anyways it ran and is still running...

Though I had to fuck with setting new keys on the wallet after trying my old ones and setting both onelovesmoke and my witness active from the same wallet...

The wallet I do not understand yet, I think I will need to set up two separate ones for each witness... I found out I never disabled onelovesmoke because of this ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Anyways both are running, and this experience has led me to conclude a simplified and updated walk through could be used for the sake of encouraging our users with resources ๐Ÿค“ project?

Total Time = 16hrs (after the 8hr mark my focus dwindled)

On Another Note - that tooth has swollen up my face and I am heading to the dentist after my vlog, something I probably should have done yesterday ๐Ÿ˜…

Thank You Everyone

For all the support on my previous post, I do appreciate that you liked my effort in spicing up a simple witness post... I hope you understand why the late update and lack of effort for this one ๐Ÿ˜˜

Has The Idea Of Being A Witness Crossed Your Mind?
For me it started as a desire to learn if I could do it.

Maybe It's Time To Run That Idea Out?
I for one will be certain to support in any way I can the new witnesses in their efforts to help maintain the blockchain... hit us up in discord ๐Ÿ‘Œ
