    Hi

    I am trying to install dnschain on Linux Mint 17 (Ubuntu 14.04) 64 bit x86_64

    I followed the installation instructions, but when I run dnschain I get an error

    error: [Global] Error: No such oldDNSMethod: NATIVE_DNS

    I added the recommended dnschain.conf file, but it does not seem to have any effect.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Can you post your configuration file? (It should be located in /etc/dnschain/dnschain.conf).

    #873

    Here is the conf file.  I played around with the value of oldDNSMethod, but it didnt seem to have any effect.



    jay@neon1 ~ $ cat /etc/dnschain/dnschain.conf
    [log]
    level=info

    [dns]
    port = 5333
    oldDNS.address = 8.8.8.8  # no quotes around IP

    # disable traditional DNS resolution
    oldDNSMethod = NO_OLD_DNS # no quotes around this either

    [http]
    port=8088
    tlsPort=4443


    Thanks

    OK, I was able to reproduce the error, but it seems that you didn't copy the complete error, which should be:

    Code:
    error: [Global] No such oldDNS method: NO_OLD_DNS # no quotes around this either

    Apparently it does not ignore the comment (which begins with the # symbol). I've just pushed a fix to the README to move the comment to the line above. That should be all that's necessary to fix it (move the comment to the line above).

    Sorry about that, and thanks for pointing this out!

    Unfortunately that didnt seem to work.  I Uninstalled and re-installed coffee and dnschain and used the new conf file.  The error is still there but is not exactly the same as you show.  I have pasted the entire redundant list of errors below… all of it 🙂

    I tried removing the dnschain.conf file completely, and the error is the same.  It feels like dnschain is not reading the dnschain.conf file.  Not sure iif it is supposed to create one if it is missing, but none nothing seems to be created.

    As a cross check, i tried installing dnschain on another device (a Cubieboard running debian) and it seemed to install and run without errors.  I dont have namecoin on that device, but i may try adding it and use that as my platform for now.  In any case, the problem seems related to my Linux Mint 17 64 bit 386 environment…

    Thanks for the help.  It looks like it will be a really useful tool for using namecoin once I get it up and running!

    OK, I think you're right in that it looks like it's simply not reading the config file.

    You have specified NO_OLD_DNS but it's complaining about NATIVE_DNS.

    That doesn't make sense though, because it shouldn't give you an error for that since that's the default and it's a perfectly acceptable value.

    My guess is that there might be multiple issues going on.

    Check:

    • That the DNSChain process can read /etc/dnschain/dnschain.conf
    • That changing oldDNSMethod in the config results, at least, in a different error message

    And that you don't have some silly typo somewhere.
