BiblePay One Click Miner Configuration still corrupts
There was an issue where the One Click Miner configuration would not be written correctly, where the line ending was 0D 0D 0A (in hex). This confused the reading of the
biblepay.conf which means the wallet could not read the file. This lead to all sorts of issue with solo mining, pool mining, or participating in any of the generic smart contracts. This issue was originally reported Aug 2018 when BiblePay was version 1.1.4.x. More than one year later, the feature is still broken.
126.96.36.199 version leaves One Click Miner Configuration broken still
This was supposedly fixed in 188.8.131.52, but I just tried using 184.108.40.206 from biblepay.org/wallet. I tested on macOS for 220.127.116.11 and there is only one 0D as the line ending which means it is fixed for Linux & macOS. Windows still seems to be an issue as of 18.104.22.168
I ran BiblePay Core once installed
Under Tools, select One Click Mining Configuration
Then you will be given a warning to acknowledge
This will create a new biblepay.conf in your Biblepay Core folder usually under
HxD freeware Hex Editor
Using the free HxD, I looked at
biblepay.conf in Windows 10
Notice how after biblepay.org, you see that the hex is 0D 0D 0A.
A good biblepay.conf should only have 0D 0A as the line ending.
What are you options then?
- After One Click Mining Configuration makes your file, use Notepad++ (freeware) to open
biblepay.conf– then change file format to PC (CRLF)
- Don’t use One Click Mining Configuration until this is fixed
- Create your
biblepay.confmanually and either type the settings manually or copy & paste from somewhere else
- Use the One Click Mining Configuration, but edit out the extra 0D from the biblepay.org for each line and save the edited file.
- Wait until this bug is addressed in a future Windows build
Whatever you do, the line ending should be 0D 0A. Extra 0D or 0A is undesirable.
