Wallet.dat error on Raspberry Pi

My Raspberry Pi is currently syncing the redcoin blockchain

yesterday I replaced the blank wallet.dat on the pi and it broke reddcoin! I restored the blank wallet.dat and it happily started to sync the blockchain again.

Does anyone know what I need to do (maybe a resync?) so my existing wallet.dat is accepted on the raspbeery pi client?


Does the wallet it was originally associated with still work? If you’re able to provide the exact error message I can assist you further.

The original wallet.dat is from my windows 10 machine and it was working fine about 2 months ago before I stopped it

What command do you want me to run to get you the error message?

This is the error, but now I am getting it on the blank wallet.dat

piraspberrypi:~ $ reddcoin-cli getinfo
error: {“code”:-1,“message”:“CDB : Error -30974, can’t open database wallet.dat”

Is my Raspberry pi getting too hot and crashing or something?

nope, its definitely the wallet.dat

I just rebooted and i am getting this error now

piraspberrypi:~ $ reddcoin-cli getwork
error: couldn’t connect to server

Hint: Some lines were ellipsized, use -l to show in full.

Fingers crossed I have resolved this by downloading and fulyl syncing the wallet on my windows 10 machine.

I then moved the wallet back to raspberry pi and it is now syncing and not crashing reddcoind

my next option was to send the reddcoin to a new wallet on the reddcoin wallet on the Raspberry pi

how this helps someone in the future!
