@dmp1ce, I'm having the same issue.

I create the package namecoin-core-git so I could get namecoin installed and running. It is a fork of this package.

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/namecoin-core-git/

Even though it didn't give any errors, I still had trouble with namecoin-cli. The "name_new" command was missing and I didn't know how to load my wallet.dat file into this version of namecoin.

This package is building for me now, but it is installing the following in my /usr/bin:

namecoin-core /usr/bin/bench_bitcoin
namecoin-core /usr/bin/bitcoin-cli
namecoin-core /usr/bin/bitcoin-tx
namecoin-core /usr/bin/bitcoind
namecoin-core /usr/bin/test_bitcoin

Also, systemctl start namecoin give me the following in the journald log:

Jul 01 14:53:13 xxx systemd[1]: Started Bitcoin Daemon.
Jul 01 14:53:13 xxx systemd[1]: namecoin.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=217/USER

I'm getting an error during the package step.

“namecoin-cli getnewaddress” works here — it must be a difference in setup.

JZA commented on 2016-03-13 12:11

So good news, I was able to build it, bad news I cant get an account/address. I read the PKGBUILD saw the --disable-wallet option for build, so I change it for --with-incompatible-bdb but both gave me the same result, no: 'namecoin-cli getnewaddress'

Please help.

kseistrup commented on 2016-03-12 18:43

@jza depnding on what you mean, I believe you're wrong. The namecoin-core packaage proper contains namecoind, namecoin-cli and namecoin-tx. The namecoin-cli thing is used to send RPC command to namecoind, and among those commands are wallet commands. It works like a charm.

JZA commented on 2016-03-12 18:27

I think this package doesn't really offer wallet options, so you can't create new addresses or accounts. I would need to look into it for --disable-wallet
I wonder if this is enabled with namecoin-qt, but I am not sure it would. Please let me know if there are some technical problems. I had an earlier conversation about Berkley DB breaking the wallet functionality because the database is too new. (WTF?)
Please let me know if there is something that needs to be done to have this package fully operational on the package notes.

Sorry, I fucked the paste up. Line 100 shouldn't be there. That's actually the argument I used for namecoin-cli later (It still looks for .bitcoin/bitcoin.conf)

My PKGBUILD does not rename the library, so there should be still conflicts with bitcoin

JZA commented on 2016-03-12 07:53

After some tweaking I am convinced this scripts needs major update. It fails naming the files causing extreme conflict with other wallets including the bitcoin wallet.

manpage - binaries, and libraries all with bitcoin as opposed to namecoin.

It cause conflicts with /usr/bin/bitcoind provided by the bitcoin wallet, as well as bitcoin-cli, bitcoin-tx, test_bitcoin etc.

libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c bitcoind /home/jza/Downloads/namecoin-core/pkg/namecoin-core/usr/bin/bitcoind
libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c bitcoin-cli /home/jza/Downloads/namecoin-core/pkg/namecoin-core/usr/bin/bitcoin-cli
libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c bitcoin-tx /home/jza/Downloads/namecoin-core/pkg/namecoin-core/usr/bin/bitcoin-tx
libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c test/test_bitcoin /home/jza/Downloads/namecoin-core/pkg/namecoin-core/usr/bin/test_bitcoin
libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c bench/bench_bitcoin /home/jza/Downloads/namecoin-core/pkg/namecoin-core/usr/bin/bench_bitcoin

I tried renaming them but that only go so far. I will suggest to rename these files to namecoin* and be able to co-exist in the system.
