Is there a live testnet which I can play around with?
You can play with a local one right now - Im putting together a quick screencast on how to run a Baby Fleming on your own box at home
EDIT : This will be for Linux - but very similar for Windows
The next one should be out this week. Maybe today or tomorrow depending on where you are located
This screencast will show me installing the safe cli , starting a local network and storing and retreiving a small directory
I need to play about with peek - Might try reducing the framerate -its only text…
WORK IN PROGRESS
I need to re do this in short chunks . 4Mb is my max upload for the forum
youtube /vimeo and a link?
sorry busy with other stuff. Ill get on to it in an hour or so and redo it without typos
Now with sound!!!
After failing to upload to Giphy, here is the raw output of
peek from last night. If I get time I’ll redo this and hopefully be a bit smoother. An audio description would help.
This proves mostly that I have a LOT to learn about screencasting
It’s probably best to regard this as me practising in public to get semi-competent for the release of T5
The commands used were:
ps aux |grep safe clear rm -rf ~/.safe ps aux |grep safe curl -so- https://sn-api.s3.amazonaws.com/install.sh | bash safe -V safe node install safe auth install safe node run-baby-fleming safe auth start safe auth create --test-coins safe auth unlock --self-auth safe auth status
@dirvine @StephenC Will we need safe auth install for T5? I see authd got updated… I was under the impression that removing the need for authd was just a temporary simplification to get more engagement on the early testnets?
Super stuff Willie. In case you aren’t aware you can monitor all nodes in one command using vdash, and then move the display to show each one using back/forward arrows:
Yes I had meant to ask you about that - That will be much “cleaner” when I redo this properly
No, unless you want advanced uses like creating GUI etc
Quick note to anyone dabbling in testnets, baby-fleming etc
As well as clearing out existing files with
rm -rf ~/.safe its a VERY good idea to check what safe processes you might have running from previous attempts
ps aux|grep safe
should show only the ps process itself - yes there is a way to do this so that doesnt show but its too complicate for me to remember - as long as you only see one line, you are fine. Likewise for
sn_authd (if applicable)
pkill -e safe pkill -e sn_node pkill sn_authd
rm -rf ~/.safe should give you a clean environment to get started.
Missing a space after the rm?
mine is stalling at ‘safe auth start’ any tips?
The typo is still there. Please fix it. I’m afraid it might confuse new users.
Whoops sorry - I only fixed the one at the bottom of the post
That sentence needs a period…
In another terminal type
tail -f ~/.safe/authd/logs/sn_authd.log
and try again from the start in the original terminal - remember to
pkill -e safe pkill -e sn_node pkill sn_authd rm -rf ~/.safe
to ensure you have a clean environment, Paste the output from the sn_authd.log if you still have a problem.
