Updated core to version 7.61.0 from https://curl.haxx.se/download.html #42
Thanks @ctya, I think we need somebody to test your branch. I can't compile right now but made a request in the forums: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=233997.msg44564545#msg44564545
Ok I've already compiled it in two different computers and I think it runs pretty well. I only ran into two crashes in one computer, but it recover after the rescanning both times. By the way, great work with the client, it's very nice and a great change from the old one!
The whole thing went like this:
I have two computers one with Kubuntu 17.10 and another one with Kubuntu 16.04.05. I used these instructions to compile them in both computers: https://github.com/devcoin/core/blob/master/doc/build-unix.md
In the computer with Kubuntu 17.10 I used an existing blockchain and my wallet. It lasted around 3 hours reindexing the whole blockchain and even have the chance to test sending some DVCs to and receiving from develCuy (see here http://dvcexplorer.wy.si/devcoin/tx/40cf4e2c661b06eaa0ced1855b259959c43a6ee89aff9f1aa3b555149bb33a11 and here http://dvcexplorer.wy.si/devcoin/tx/42fc085ec03267f7544be856ac3ef37dcc805602b24b027277db49d1d953d769)
In the Kubuntu 16.04.05 laptop after speaking with develCuy, I gave it a try without any prexisting blockchain to see if everything looked fine, I only included my wallet and the address files. However, in there were where the crashes happened . Firstly, it happened during the receiver 37 in week 208, and secondly in receiver 59, week 111. The client shut downed itself at those points and then when I reopened the program, it continued where it left and kept indexing the blockchain without any additional problem.
At the end, it took like 4 hours to download everything and everything seems ok, however, the blockchain in the first computer weighs 1,9 gigabytes and in the second one weighs around 1,2 gigabytes. Excepting that, everything looks normal.
I haven't the opportunity to check yet the sending and receiving functions in the second computer, and develCuy told me that there is a new option to send a message through the wallet, but I haven't found out how to make it work. I saw something like sign and verify messages, but I don't know how do they work. If you point me to any documentation or some directions, I would like to test this feature.
Anyway, if you need any more information or something additional, I would gladly help.
Experience with Ubuntu 16.04
There was an error surrounding permissions. My assumption was ownership which lost some time. It ended up being the build_detect_platform shell script, which required a "chmod +x build_detect_platform" on it for the qmake and make instructions.
Now having issues with libcurl. "locate curl.h" returns "/usr/include/curl/curl.h". Yet getting the following error:
g++: error: /home/nova/Downloads/core-f29c33c44e003d02ad2d5e3aff73e923229f52f0/src/curl/lib/.libs/libcurl.a: No such file or directory
Will look into it further a little later.
