Hi - I've built 3.23 in Narwhal, it compiles and runs and downloads blocks but the gui does not come up.

tail -F debug.log
IRC got new address
IRC got join
IRC got join
IRC got join
IRC got join
IRC got join
AddAddress()
IRC got new address
IRC got join
IRC got join

it does eventually get the blocks - blkindex.dat is 137 mb and blk0001.dat is 286 mb - but the gui never shows up. Any ideas?

 Huh

Annona ad! Please keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with Bitcoin itself. All it's scandals are caused by wonky websites and sleazy people exploiting it. The light attracts bugs.

When all this bullshit drys up and blows away, Bitcoin will be stronger than ever.

Do you have the package libwxgtk2.8-dev installed? If not, install it, recompile, and see if that works.

I'll try it, but I must tell you it's not in the build-unix.txt file.

Sorry, never mind. Just read build-unix.txt more closely, and:

Quote
Requires wxWidgets 2.9.0 or greater, which uses UTF-8. Don't try 2.8, it
won't work.

You need to download wxWidgets from http://www.wxwidgets.org/downloads/
and build it yourself. See the build instructions and configure parameters
below.

So, you need to compile wxwidgets yourself, if you haven't already.

Ok - I did on the 15th but I remember now - here's the script from build-unix.txt

cd /usr/local
tar -xzvf wxWidgets-2.9.0.tar.gz
cd wxWidgets-2.9.0
mkdir buildgtk
cd buildgtk
../configure --with-gtk --enable-debug --disable-shared --enable-monolithic
make
sudo su
make install
ldconfig

Notice it says sudo su at the end - well, I needed root access just to untar the files in usr/local

I am a bigger unix noob than I would like to admit - I did the whole thing as root - was this wrong?

Doing them all as root isn't ideal, but should work. Did you just copy and paste most of that in one block, or did you enter the commands one by one?
Were there any build errors?
Try running make install and ldconfig again (as root), I'm going to guess they didn't do their job.

Hey,

here you can download miniupnc, had the problem on a different machine, it works fine with it.

http://miniupnp.free.fr/files/download.php?file=miniupnpc-1.5.tar.gz

tar xfv miniupnc..
cd miniupnc
make
make install

Hi - I've built 3.23 in Narwhal, it compiles and runs and downloads blocks but the gui does not come up.

tail -F debug.log
IRC got new address
IRC got join
IRC got join
IRC got join
IRC got join
IRC got join
AddAddress()
IRC got new address
IRC got join
IRC got join

it does eventually get the blocks - blkindex.dat is 137 mb and blk0001.dat is 286 mb - but the gui never shows up. Any ideas?

 Huh

Why are you compiling it?

What is wrong with the download link available on bitcoin.org?

Well, as part of my continuous improvement program I am trying to get back into C after abandoning it years ago... I have decided that a few things in computers will stick around like Unix, C and SQL so I should get a grip on them.

You could attempt to compile the QT port of the bitcoin app:
http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=15276.0
They're planning on switching to QT in the future anyway, and you might have fewer issues.
