I’ve used this guide before and it worked so well.

I recently moved to Mac and before I could backup the keys for my node, some of the sd cards got cooked in power blackouts.

Now I tried redoing the nodes from scratch but I find that the disk image (15.93gb) is too big for my formatted sd cards (15.5gb)

Pulling hair out here

Any suggestions?
Any useful help greatly appreciated

I used the disk utility to format and etcher to flash

Thanks guys

For some reason, not all 16G SD cards are created equal. The image may not use 16G of space but is expecting to expand into 15.93 and you only have 15.5G. The best solution for you would be to either get a Sandisk card or do option 2.


Thanks. That’s pretty much the conclusion I came to. Thanks for the reply.

Sorry im new to this, i seem to be able to complete all the steps up to the last point for the manager node (and the only node) but after typing in the command i am not able to get see anything on the website when i type in my node_ip:8000 into the search bar, does anyone know what went wrong? im doing manually thru option 2 cause the image is too big for my sd card.

sorry for the very late reply.

node_ip:8000 means the Ip of your node so for example 192.168.1.X:8000 or 192.168.0.X:8000 X being your manager node so for me it would be 192.168.0.101:8000

I used option one and only setup 1 node. when I go to add others, I am assuming I use option one again to setup the new nodes, then run this (./skyminer_engage.sh) again on the main one? is that it? or am I missing something?

So I got bigger SD cards to use the pre-config but I still cannot get it to run!

So I'm waiting for the other 6 SD card's which will be here tomorrow so Ill set everything up then as it autoscipts all the nodes? or can I just set up the master with a node on then add the 7 others later? How would I do this with the pre-made image?

Thanks!

I'd like to know what other Pi models can be used, this guide is for raspberry v3 B, but some recommend B+ (https://diyskyminer.com/raspberry-pi-b-d...tup-guide/). Then there's the Orange Pi, which is used in the official miner but they don't reveal the model. Orange Pi zero is what's available on Amazon. So my question is what's the difference between these boards and which is the better choice? Thanks

Hey all, I've had an 8 PI Node set up since December last year, I made it on the white list in January. I built it with 8 Orange PI PC, Its run very well until 4 days ago. When I go to the 8000/#/nodes, all 8 nodes show up yellow and say "Node is online, but not discovered by the skywire network"

I have used the following code for my manager node since I built it and its always just worked. has something changed? do i need to change my code?

cd $GOPATH/bin
nohup ./manager -web-dir ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/skycoin/skywire/static/skywire-manager > /dev/null 2>&1 & echo $! > manager.pid

cd $GOPATH/bin
nohup ./node -connect-manager -manager-address 192.168.1.201:5998 -manager-web 192.168.1.201:8000 -discovery-address discovery.skycoin.net:5999-034b1cd4ebad163e457fb805b3ba43779958bba49f2c5e1e8b062482904bacdb68 -address :5000 -web-port :6001 > /dev/null 2>&1 & echo $! > node.pid

I have finally figured out my problem. It seems at some time the Discovery address changed... I can't find anything here that says it did or when. But through hours and hours of googling I found a different Discovery address. I gave it a try and my node came right online. If anyone else has this problem I will post the address below.

discovery.skycoin.net:5999-028ec969bdeb92a1991bb19c948645ac8150468a6919113061899051409de3f243

Don't know if this matters but i think it should be skycoin.com, because of the migration from .net to .com.
both show nearly the same address except the ending.

discovery.skycoin.com:5999-028ec969bdeb92a1991bb19c948645ac8150468a6919113061899051409de3f243

I think we will have to wait for the next announcement!

I checked the official website and its

testnet.skywire.skycoin.com:5999-028ec969bdeb92a1991bb19c948645ac8150468a6919113061899051409de3f243

so is it discovery or testnet? im confused as only 1 of my 8 nodes are showing up.
