Take a notice, this is now a split package - meaning it will build both the gui and the daemon - you need to install only one of them (unless you really need both).

My first attempt at building version resulted in being reinstalled, db5.3 was auto installed but I still had db installed. I removed db and built and ran successfully. Thanks.

There was another needed fix for db5.3, and I've added a make check as well.

According to gridcoin db 6.2 will cause segfault, although the build will be successful. I have just updated the package to depend on db5.3 instead of db.

The Manjaro updates of 24th Jan 2023 included some QT updates, so I tried to rebuild gridcoinresearch-qt, but a missing dependency of db was reported.

I had previously installed db4.8 to build gridcoinresearch-qt as suggested a few weeks back, but that did not work this time. So I removed db4.8 and installed db (version 6.2.32-1 at this time) and the build was successful.

However I get a Sementation fault when I try to run it.

@CupricReki how were you able to install libdb from AUR? the compilation fails on my machine with

../dist/../crypto/aes_method.c: In function ‘__aes_err’: ../dist/../crypto/aes_method.c:270:9: error: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Werror=format-security] 270 | __db_errx(env, errstr); | ^~~~~~~~~ cc1: some warnings being treated as errors

@Tahvok definitely not a wayland issue. Maybe the 'db' dependency should actually be 'db4.8' as they specify that version of the lib. Would you recommend making an upstream issue relating to them using an older version of the lib?

Tahvok commented on 2022-12-19 14:37 (UTC)

@CupricReki then I would suggest to open an issue with upstream. I'm also not sure it is related to wayland. Just open an issues detailing everything.

@Tahvok Same issue after removing package, pacman -Syu and rebuild. dmesg output: gridcoinresearc[194194]: segfault at 0 ip 00007fe32005e3fa sp 00007fe2ba7f8e90 error 6 in[7fe32003c000+184000]

I notice gridcoin uses libdb4.8 and that seems to be missing from /usr/lib/.

Edit: Working after installing db4.8 via aur and rebuild.

Just updated to latest version, sorry for the delay.

I'm running wayland myself (with sway if it matters), and it is working just fine. @CupricReki Have you made sure to rebuild it after a pacman -Syu?
