Wait... you're running this on the offline computer?  You don't need Bitcoin-Qt on the offline computer.  Please uninstall it so Armory isn't even tempted to try to run it.  You only need Armory on the offline computer, and the offline computer can be any PoS with 256 MB of RAM or more.  The online computer is the one that needs all the RAM and bitcoin-qt.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Sorry, I meant online Armory, offline read only wallet.

I am running 64bit Armory.

If I get another crash, I will export an Armory log after the event.

Thank you for the great work...


If you found my posts helpful...

Using Windows 7/64, 8 GB RAM, 100 Mbps Internet

I like Armory very much, but its "speed" when starting (Synchronizing and Scanning transaction history) is really not tolerable.

My Armory-win32 version crashed also, first hanging around, then after killing and restart runtime error.

After trying quite a lot I deleted the bitcoin AppData dir (blockchain...) as described in the
outdated(!)
https://bitcoinarmory.com/troubleshooting-armory/

I shouldn't have done that, since as I see here, the new instruction is to use Armory-win64 only.
So I try that. Download and installation is done within seconds.

Now I restart Armory-win64 and cannot believe it.
Armory is Reading/saving not even 100 bytes of the 10 GB blockchain etc. in a minute.
Can see this using Total Commander for my dir management.

Even bitcoin-qt (very,very slow also) is much faster doing the same.
So I stopped armory and now bitcoin-qt is reloading the deleted blockchain.
40000 blocks left in moment. 07:39:45 PM
Compared with that, Electrum doing nothing like that is a dream. Cheesy

This has been discussed many times.  There was a nice robustness and simplicity by not saving data between loads.  But obviously not sustainable, and it's becoming too much trouble for users.

I'm working on it now.  It should be done in a couple weeks.

Just as Info:
Bitcoin-qt was ready rereading the complete blockchain at 11:55 PM
Started new installed Armory-win64, worked now, ready 10 minutes later.

Any chance of being able to add the option to show the mtgox price in the tray?
I know it's not the role of Armory, but it would be useful to have.

I've been trying to add it myself, I've got the code to grab the current price, but with a lack of python/QT knowledge I have little idea on how to add threaded timers (i.e. to update every 5 minutes, without stalling the program whilst the update function runs).

I know it's not the role of Armory, but it would be useful to have.

I've been trying to add it myself, I've got the code to grab the current price, but with a lack of python/QT knowledge I have little idea on how to add timers which work in the background (i.e. to update every 5 minutes, without stalling the program whilst the update function runs).

This is what the "heartbeat" functions are for Smiley 

-- Add a widget somewhere that will show the price (we'll call it self.goxWidget = QLabel(''))
-- Create a function like below
-- Add it to the extraHeartbeatAlways list  (extraHeartbeatAlways.append(getGoxPrice))

Code:

def getGoxPrice():
   # Return instantly if current time is not a multiple of 900 sec
   if not (RightNow() % (15*MINUTE)) == 0:
      return

   try:
      import urllib2
      import ast
      theData = urllib2.urlopen('http://data.mtgox.com/api/1/BTCUSD/ticker').read()
      dataMap = ast.literal_eval(theData)
      lastValueStr = dataMap['return']['last']['display']
      self.goxWidget.setText(lastValueStr)
   except:
      self.goxWidget.setText('???')
      LOGEXCEPT('Could not access Gox data')  # dumps exception to log

You could set the modulo to 10*SECOND for testing.

Nice one. I did see the heartbeat function but didn't play with it much.

I'll have a look to see if I can get it working.

I've just switched from Fedora to Ubuntu and am trying to install Armory again, but I'm running into a similar problem as I did with Fedora. I received an error after running the make command and I believe it comes down the the fact that I do not have:

/usr/lib/python$(PYVER)/config/libpython$(PYVER).a

There simply is no /config/ directory and likewise no config/libpython.

I'm running Ubuntu 13.04.

Ay.  I forgot, 13.04 puts the python-dev files in a different place.  I just ran into this problem on my new laptop (with 13.04), and I forgot exactly how I fixed it... but a search of the /usr dir for libpython2.7 should turn up the correct prefix to use.  Then you can replace that line appropriately.

Sorry for the inconvenience.  I'm battling a few other crises at the moment.  Alternatively, now that you're on Ubuntu again, you can use the .deb package (which will give you a "bad package quality" warning, but it's legit, I promise Smiley).  It is even signed with my offline GPG key, so you can check it to be sure, before you install it.

I'd rather not run a deb with this software. Any chance you will pull this to github so anybody who clones it has it all set up already?

I'll keep fooling with it in the meantime, although it's not just line 26, but I think also line 29 that might cause problems. There were several libpython files I found in the /usr/share/lintian/overrides/ directory. So, I'm just crapshooting right now.

Okay, so it seems the first time I was searching for libpython2.7 when I should have been searching for libpython2.7.a

After searching the latter I found this:

seth@seth-LockBox:/usr$ find -name libpython2.7.a
./lib/python2.7/config-x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.a
./lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.a

Then I changed the directories for BOTH lines 26 AND 29 to the second instance of libpython2.7.a which is:

./lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.a

Don't ask me why I chose that one. I think I just missed the other one. I'm not sure which one I was SUPPOSED to use, but I will say that I was able to get BitcoinArmory to install after choosing the second one. Can you please confirm that I chose the right one?

Also, I opened up Armory and it's telling me to close my Bitcoin-Qt client. So, now I've got to look into that some.

The newest version of Armory runs Bitcoin-Qt for you.  That's a "feature".  But it's an annoying feature if you have some non-std configurations.  You can go into the settings and turn it off, to run it yourself.  Or point it to where it's installed and let it do everything for you.  Or let it install it for you, which should work, but who knows, with all these different system configurations.

Was this the right one to use?

./lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.a

or should I have used this one?

./lib/python2.7/config-x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.a

I'm not actually sure.  I'd be surprised if they were different, though.  So you can use either one (and let me know if that's not the case).  Unfortunately, I don't have a 13.04 system near me, so I can't investigate at the moment.

exactly, you can specify pattern as a regex, if you create a regex that starts with 1 and continues with only upper case letters and pass it as argument (-h of ocl dosnt have it, dunno if it works there, i guess not!) and enjoy Smiley

Indeed, vanitygen has a regular-expressions option, but you can't use the GPU with it.  So I had to use regular-old-CPUs to generate that address, which was expected to take about 70 days with my existing CPU power.  I had a bunch of miners laying around eating GPU cycles, but idle CPUs.  So I put them to work.

It was supposed to be 70 days for 50% chance of finding such an address.  I got lucky and found it after like 4-5 days.  And I've been a celebrity ever since then Smiley
