NMC, HUC & CRW now incompatible with p2pool merge mining? #270
Hi forrestv, I PM'd you on BCT about this but got no reply, so thought better to do it here. I had this PM from domob regarding the problem:
I think that this is something that can and should be fixed on the P2Pool side (or, in general, the merge-mining script). I agree with F2Pool that the change makes sense since "target" would be inconsistent with other "target" values (e. g., "getblocktemplate"). It should be trivial to check for the presence of "_target" keys in the RPC result and use them.
My p2pool startup errors for the coins were:
NMC startup error:
2015-08-26 14:33:28.003130 > Unhandled error in Deferred:
HUC startup error:
2015-08-26 14:55:35.929528 > Unhandled error in Deferred:
CRW startup error:
2015-08-26 15:02:14.389197 > Unhandled error in Deferred:
Once I made the changes suggested by domob above, I no longer got the errors & merge mining is working again. Is it possible to make the changes within p2pool so that merge miners no longer need to do the changes for each coin manually before compiling?
I pushed a change to p2pool master that should fix this within P2Pool.

Update: I think there might still be a problem we overlooked - I'm unable to find anyone who has found an NMC block using the namecoin-core client. I've posted on the NMC forums asking for a dev to look into it, as several months of zero blocks found with p2pool merge mining using the core client seems extremely unlikely, although I'm sure that the problem is not with p2pool itself.
Edit: cancel this - core is working.
