Chia blockchain and or wallet continuously corrupted

Hello all

Im having a recurring issue where the blockchain and wallet will be synced for several days/weeks but eventually im having to re sync the entire thing by deleting the .db files. Right now its the blockchain that wont sync.

Does anyone have a solution to this? Its rather frustrating as i keep having to do it. Im running linux. In the logs i think i see the issue. Looking for a permanent solution. I realize re syncing the entire blockchain would fix. Thanks in advance for any help!

I did a pretty good search for your error which was easy as there is little reference to it.

It is a python error expecting hex numbers that it appears the Chia Gui is not getting or sending, not sure which.

I could find no reference to this exact error for Chia.

To get a real answer you will probably need to install Keybase, join the Chia Team, and post your question in Support to the Chia devs and community there.

Thanks for the reply. Appreciate you taking the time out. I did the same, couldn’t find any good info using search tool either. Hopefully someone sees this, if not I will try keybase.

I used to have it, but getting the dev’s attention can be a little frustrating with all the chatter going on at once :slight_smile:

Can someone tag a dev? Anyone got a bat signal!

Thought same as you and put off figuring out where to go on Keybase for over two weeks after asking my questions and posting my ERROR here.
Got my answer from Keybase in under 36hrs once I finally went there but not a solution for the mess I had created. If I had posted my ERROR there two weeks earlier I would been able fix the mess in time and save most of my farm.
The devs at Team Chia on Keybase do attend and respond, and the support channel is actually pretty quiet interspersed with interesting questions, and often, answers.
UPDATE - Even when not using Keybase it hangs around and uses a fair chunk of resources. I uninstalled Keybase after finishing my chats there.
