I built a new Monero Fork. Trying to run it for the first time and getting errors:

2018-07-05 10:09:30.989 7612 ERROR cn src/cryptonote_basic/cryptonote_format_utils.cpp:167 Failed to parse transaction from blob

2018-07-05 10:09:31.305 7612 FATAL daemon src/daemon/daemon.cpp:194 Uncaught exception! batch transactions not enabled

How can I fix this?

See answer here: How to generate a new genesis tx?


set this to 0 if per-block checkpoint
