Re: Determining whether gnunet is connected

When I had it running years ago, and saw actual "peers" connected, I had no idea what I did right, and since then I've never managed to replicate the success.

You had written in a previous email that you had been able to run GNUnet but then you filled the disk and got this error:

error: database or disk is full

Martin suggested you to reduce the quota assigned to the database to 1 GB. At the same time I attached a link (among others) to the § /var/lib/gnunet/ grows too big section of the ArchWiki which explains how to edit manually the /etc/gnunet.conf file to reach the same effect.

If the disk space is already full you might also need to get rid of the previous database manually.

But there are things we don't know and therefore we cannot help you unless you tell us.

Instead of being us not willing to explain, could it be that you might be skipping some of the suggestions?

Not according to the denizens of the #gnunet IRC channel:

13:26 < dvn> GNUmoon: gnunet is useless until transport (and connected
layers) are fixed/rewritten
13:26 < dvn> that's the fact of the matter
13:27 < dvn> how can you debug CADET when the layers beneath have bugs
which make it unreliable
13:27 < dvn> it's a fools errand
13:28 < dvn> i mean no offence by saying this -- especially not to you
for trying -- but i get sad seeing people try to use this and running
into the same walls
13:28 < dvn> (over and over)
