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

OK, now when I try to get the block count I get:

~$ ggd getblockcount
146307

Which is the Bitcoin block count.  Isn't that wrong?  Man, I wish there was some documentation I could read.

I see.  So I need to add the -datadir parameter on the command line all the time, OK.

~$ ggd -datadir=/home/ama/.gg getblockcount
12605

Yep!  Finally!  I think it'd be very convenient to make all this information needed to run the daemon easily accesible to the newbies.  Thank you for all the help.   Smiley

Well, I think I'll put a bounty on a linux tutorial (win users can just download "Crutches" portability suite / PGUI and fire away), since I'm quite clumsy with them linuxes.

Hm, I guess 500 GG would be fair....

Ok,

Code:
~$ git clone git://github.com/Lolcust/GeistGeld
~$ cd GeistGeld/src
~/GeistGeld/src$ make -f makefile.unix
~/GeistGeld/src$ mv bitcoind ~/ggd
~/GeistGeld/src$ cd ~
~$ mkdir .gg

Extract bitcoin.conf from Config+Blockchain to .gg directory

In your favourite text editor, change
Code:
printtoconsole=1
to
Code:
printtoconsole=0

also change
Code:
rpcuser=xxxx
rpcpassword=xxx
to something appropriate,

then
Code:
~$ ./ggd -datadir=/home/<your-username-here>/.gg &

to check it's working:
Code:
~$ ./ggd -datadir=/home/<your-username-here>/.gg getinfo

That's what I did, I'm no expert!

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?

GEG added to http://blockexplorer.sytes.net/.  I hope it's useful.

I did it a few days ago already, actually before I set the blockexplorer up, hehe.

Thank you.  I didn't even think about adding a GEG donation address to the page, as I didn't add a Bitcoin testnet one.  They are testnets and the coins have no value, have they?

Geist only uses testnet folder due to legacy from multicoin.

OKAY THAT DOES IT Cheesy

I will change the default folder layout in the upcoming update (Don't worry, your "old" geist wallets will still reside in <datadir>/testnet so you could copy them over to new location and thus no ghost monies are expected to be lost)

Does that mean that GEG isn't experimental anymore?  Is it a "real" chain then?

It's still experimental, but it's real (in the sense there is an exchange in the works, and sooner or later pools) to the approximate extent (some) other alt-coins are "real"

BTW, what defines a "real" alt-coin ?

I don't know, I'm no expert!  But I'd say that if some people use it and take it serious, despite of what other people do, say, or think, it can be consider "real".  I thought that being experimental it was simply a testnet, without any real value.   I'm sorry, I've probably missinterpret the inicial posts where it was called experimental.
