Hi all,

I backed up my wallet to a separate, encrypted volume (a .dmg file), and removed the ~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin directory and replaced it with a link to /Volume/Bitcoin (the new volume) as per the wiki (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Talk:Securing_your_wallet).

Now, when I try to open Bitcoin, I get an Exception error, which looks like this:

Code:
EXCEPTION:
N5boost16exception_detail10clone_implInS0_19error_info_injectorINS_10filesystem22basic_filesystem_errorINS3_10basic_pathISsNS3_11path_traitsEEEEEEEEEboost::filesystem::create_directory: File exists: "/Users/myusername/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin

bitcoin in AppInit()

Any ideas on what's going on? The image/volume has been mounted each time I've tried to open the bitcoin client.

Thanks,

-Patrick

Bump!  Smiley

Just wanted to bring this back up to the top, just in case someone else is having this problem or knows of a solution.

Thanks for the reply!

However, I tried using the command you posted and I'm still getting the same error.

Very frustrating Sad

Thanks for attempting to help, though!

Thanks! I guess I'll look into making that my project for this weekend.

The 'open' command is the best way to run Bitcoin.app from the command line:

Code:
open /Applications/Bitcoin.app --args -datadir=/Volumes/Bitcoin

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

I tried opening it from the terminal with both -datadir=/Volumes/Bitcoin and -datadir=/Volumes/Bitcoin/ and neither worked. Same error again Sad

Maybe upgrading to 0.4 will fix this?
