#StackBounty: #go-ethereum geth –dev fails to mine more than one contract

Bounty: 50

I installed geth and solc by following

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ethereum-unstable
sudo apt-get install solc

then i ran

geth --dev

and did

geth attach

I created a contract and compiled it and “deployed” it to my blockchain.

var abi = <abi from solc>;
var jarContract = eth.contract(abi); 
var bin = '0x' + "<bytecode from solc>";
var txDeploy = {from:eth.accounts[0], data: bin, gas: 1000000}; 
var jar = jarContract.new(txDeploy); 

It was instantly mined and I got an address for it and could work with it.

But then I did

var jar2 = jarContract.new(txDeploy); 

i.e. using EXACTLY the same variables as before, and nothing ever happened. It was not “mined”, I got no address and could not interact with the contract.

I am a bit stumped. I only seem to be able to get one contract out of –dev and then have to stop and start it again to “mine” another one.

Any thoughts would be welcome!
