How do you run GEG with the same user on the same box as you also run Bitcoin on Unix?  I've downloaded the sources with git, compiled them and when running the daemon, even indicating a different --datadir and port (8335) it seems to connect to the Bitcoin network.  Are there any documentation on how to run both simultaneously, please?

A different datadir should force it to do everything okay.

Create your datadir. Make sure it's empty. put Geist's config there. Start geist with -datadir="path_to_datadir"

Do not pass port as startup option - config should be taking care of that.

If you did everything right, it will creater a testnet folder in the datadir which you specified and connect to channel #geistgeld00

It doesn't seem to:

~$ ggd -datadir=.gg/
Bitcoin: Unable to bind to port 8333 on this computer.  Bitcoin is probably already running.

That's why I also try seting the port on the command line.

I also had tried that.  It does not make any difference:

:~$ ggd -datadir=/home/ama/.gg/

Um, did you try putting quotes?

:~$ ggd -datadir="/home/ama/.gg/" ?

Maybe try using a different  datadir name, one with no dot in it (random suggestion) ?

It'd be the first program (and *coin) needing either quotes or a non-hidden directory.

It's working for me, without the trailing / :

It does not make any difference.  It shouldn't anyway.  I always add the trailing end to directory paths.

~$ ggd -daemon -datadir=/home/ama/.gg
Bitcoin: Unable to bind to port 8333 on this computer.  Bitcoin is probably already running.

It seems like I was running the Bitcoin binary instead of the GEG one.  But I clone the sources directory with:

git clone https://github.com/Lolcust/GeistGeld.git

And compiled inside of the GeistGeld/src.  I got a binary called 'bitcoind', though.

I followed the same procedure I follow to compile Bitcoin, Namecoin, Solidcoin, I0coin, and Ixcoin.  I've compiled all of the several times and I never had any problem.  Is there something special I need to do for GEG which is different of the rest, please?

Is there real interest in a blockexplorer-like site for Geist Geld?  Help me decide if I should set it up!     Grin

Yes: 16p7hr3nKhFrKz3qn2cg3Q3buEgr5yPnU9
No: 1H51nfR4V83dhy9niUZjjXigVVYeX14qZ9

0:0, so there doesn't seem to be neither real need nor interest in the blockexplorer for GG.   Grin

I think there is interest.
The problem is people don't like to pay for voting.
If you set up geist blockexplorer though, I would be glad to donate once it's up.
And maybe Lolcust can offer a bounty?

Well, it wasn't really voting.  As someone said, nobody could find any reason to vote for no.  It was more of a funny way of asking for donations to set it up.

A bounty would be motivating, since simply getting the daemon to run seems to te to be orders of magnitud more complicated than running the other *coins.

I took the generated bitcoind, moved it to ~ and renamed it. I'm calling it with
Code:
~$./ggd -datadir=/home/ama/.gg &

In your .gg/bitcoin.conf, check both port & rpcport.

Out of ideas...

I don't have any port or rpcport set.  Somebody said before using a different directory would take care of that.  I never set a port or a rpcport either for any of the other five chains.  Is it necesary to do it for this one?  If so, what are the port and rpcport numbers for it?

I have the log piped to a text file if you want it.

I don't have any port or rpcport set.  

That is not normal, default Geist config should have both of those.

Geist is different in how it handles stuff from config (due to being a Multicoin fork) and thus some values (port, portlisten, ntp, enablefullretarget and many others) need to be there.

Please see "default" Geist config, it's in the Config+Blockchain folder that should have gotten fetched from Git, and also in the Git source's root

Hm, could you post the contents of the config you are using with Geist to www.pastebin.com ?

It's short enough to paste it here:

~$ cat .gg/bitcoin.conf
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password

I use equivalent files for all the *coin.

Well, that kills the Geist.

It's a multicoin fork, so it takes a lot of vital stuff (including Genesis block properties) from config.

I guess I will make that very explicit in first post and on site lol.

Use default config supplied with sources (though you might want to change rpc username and password)

Please do so.  I don't think it's stated anywhere easy enough to find for someone new to the chain.  I'd say it's kind of logical to think it works like all the other 5 popular chains, isn't it?

It seems to be working now, although, unlike any other chain, it's throwing hundreds of lines of text into the console.
