    Somer's guides are awesome and extremely thorough, but they help you learn to build a validator from scratch. In practice, I always download client binaries rather than building from scratch. You can find the lodestar releases page here.

    My mainnet lodestar node crashed today. Thankfully, the validator process switched over to my backup lighthouse node without missing a single attestation.

    Daily Goerli: I've been periodically running into some issues when updating nethermind which require force killing the Nethermind.Runner process. Recently had an issue where geth in lodestar-geth thought it was waiting for updates from lodestar, but lodestar was reporting connection refused. A restart of geth fixed it. I'm currently running into No state found for id 'head' in all lodestar instances, which was supposed to be fixed by this PR. I also recently encountered a long stack error from erigon in prysm-erigon when closing to update, but restarting both clients allowed sync to resume.

    The following sections outline how to configure an execution-layer client and a consensus-layer client so that they have everything in place to execute the entire merge already in the genesis block. Here, we'll use Geth and Lodestar.

    Most notably, we've upgraded libp2p to 0.39.2, which includes the TypeScript rewrite and ES modules migration. This was a large upgrade for us which touched a lot of the codebase and underlying libraries with some sweeping changes. For a full changelog, please see: https://github.com/ChainSafe/lodestar/releases/tag/v1.2.0 or our blog post here: https://blog.chainsafe.io/lodestar-releases-v1-2-0-e34664a774fd. v1.2.0 is recommended for upgrade.

    Daily Goerli: The main branch of besu doesn't like block 7861134. All besu instances mark it as invalid. Someone copied my report to a similar issue for Ropsten. Lodestar is the only CL client that treats this as a critical error and exits entirely. I created an issue suggesting that it should instead continue erroring without exiting and resume normally once the issue with the EL client is resolved.

  • Ask HN: Is Ethereum's Merge one of the biggest successes in Open Source?

    It certainly seems it will be remembered as a major success story for open p2p protocols on the global Internet of our time.

    A great multitude of developers and enthusiasts belonging or contributing to diverse teams spread across the world: developing, debating, and collaborating for years to arrive at the big event.

    And it's all been done very much in the public view:
