Right now Kiln sends a message to one conversation that it finds by looking at your bot's conversation history. This is currently a "minimum viable product" version of the feature. We believe it would be pretty easy to extend this behavior to groups as well. Keep an eye on the release notes!
Kiln can be uninstalled using the following command. Note this will remove all the configurations and node data.
sudo dpkg --purge kiln
It is described well: https://gitlab.com/obsidian.systems/kiln/blob/develop/docs/distros/ubuntu.md
Kiln as a software is not meant to give you more baking rights. It is just a software meant to allow you to interface nicely with the network and perform your baker duties.
In tezos as a baker you get one baking right per roll that you own or have been delegated to. One roll is 8000XTZ as per the Babylon protocol. If you want more rights you need to own more ...
My initial problem was that I used the external IP in the tunnel configuration. The following solves the problem Reference to documentation on PuTTY tunnels:
1) Set "Source Port" for the port on your local machine: 8000.
2) Set "Destination" to your internal IP address on the remote machine including port 8000 as highlighted in the screenshot ...
Version 0.5.1 of Kiln has a Debian package (.deb) that, ironically, doesn't work on Debian. It only works on Ubuntu. This is because Ubuntu enables user namespaces by default but Debian does not. You can manually enable them on Debian by following the "permanent" instructions here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/303214/197651
Great question - it will! We hope to include this in our next release.
Tezos has adopted this new derivation scheme because it improves security. Backstory: because this update involves BIP32 (Bitcoin Improvement Proposal 32), it is important to contrast how addresses are used in Bitcoin and Tezos:
Bitcoin: Users have a root address, from which you can ...
Based on reports from community members, the most effective way to repair the connection between Kiln and the Ledger device is to remove the baker from Kiln using the baker tile's menu, then re-add the baker. If you'd like to try signing something before taking this step, I recommend setting the highwater mark or re-authorizing the Ledger device, also from ...
Number of peers should be in the hundreds.
Kiln runs a node with default net-addr port 9732. Check that this port 9732 is open on your kiln server. You may need to configure your networking router to port forward to your kiln server as well.
Not sure with regards to Kiln, but our node (non-kiln) averages 250-300 connected peers. The number of peers is directly configured within the tezos-node config file. Perhaps in Kiln there is some way to modify that config file?
We (Obsidian Systems) update the version of Tezos that Kiln uses when we do new Kiln releases. When you upgrade Kiln, your node will momentarily be offline. When Kiln restarts, your node will start up again.
Best time for your upgrades is when you do not have opportunities to bake or endorse a block since they will be missed when your node is down.
Kiln has a parameter called kiln-data-dir which you can use to point the other directory where you'd like the tezos-client and tezos-node directory instead of the default /var/lib/kiln.
On ubuntu, set this via /etc/kiln/args:
Kiln is currently the easiest approach to running your own baker in the Tezos ecosystem. It is early in it's development and iterating quickly. But the focus clearly is to help people bake for themselves; as such there is no real need to automate baker payouts to others.
If you are using Kiln to run your own delegation service you will likely need to find ...

Did you definitely do step 5? sudo cp -r ~/.tezos-node/context ~/.tezos-node/store /var/lib/kiln/data-dir/tezos-node/[chain-id]/ sudo chown -R kiln:kiln /var/lib/kiln/data-dir/tezos-node/[chain-id]
This is the answer:
sudo chown -R kiln:kiln /var/lib/kiln/data-dir/tezos-node/[chain-id]
or for production:
sudo chown -R kiln:kiln /...
This notification is to inform the user when a new version of Tezos is available. There is a separate notification for Kiln updates.
Over time, this notification has been refined to be more informative. At first, it monitored https://gitlab.com/tezos/tezos/-/tree/mainnet and generically informed the user that an update was available. But for users only ...
The mainnet version is keeping the same ("006-PsCARTHA"). But Tezos dev team released a version of v7.0 to support "multinetwork mode" on 7 May.
Kiln developer here. The error you posted in the comment is actually relevant and might be the cause why your node is not working. Unfortunately it is not possible to figure out what the problem is by just looking at this log snippet. Is it possible to get more information about your system
When updating Kiln on Ubuntu, there is no need to shut down kiln first. Installing the new version should automatically handle the upgrade for you.
If that does not work out and your installation gets corrupted, your best bet might be to remove Kiln entirely from your machine with sudo dpkg --purge kiln, install the newest version fresh, and start your ...
You can currently do this The 'Start Baking' flow will work just fine. Just know that, whether you are using Kiln or not, if you register as a delegate without a roll (currently 8,000 XTZ) you will not receive any rights. If that's the case, Kiln will allow you to register but notify that you have insufficient funds to receive rights.
Regarding the 8.25% - ...
It sounds like your baker went inactive when you were switching between Kiln and Bakechain. You can use a block explorer such as tzscan to confirm if you went inactive.
Once your rolls are captured in a snapshot you should regain voting rights a few cycles later.
If you didn't figure this out: You can actually change the directory that kiln uses for the tezos node data. It's a bit odd that the symlinks break things, but you ought to be able to not need a symlink.
