My armory breaks down every time I start it. Or better: as soon as it is connected to BitcoinQT (while organziing blockchain). I have the latest version of BitcoinQT and Armory. It was everything ok for weeks. But today it happend EVERY time (I tired at least 10 times, reboot, ...) I have a mac.

Any hint what I should do? Rebuilt blockchain? Reinstall Armory?

Those are the first lines of the error report:

Any hint what I should do? Rebuilt blockchain? Reinstall Armory?

I use Armory on my Mac often and very rarely see crashes. I've heard some people are still having performance issues. My theory is that Qt (an underlying library) just doesn't play nice with some Macs due to threading issues. I've been trying to make some noise and get this investigated. If anybody would like to help me out, please upvote this bug. The patch I posted there doesn't fix everything but it does fix a lot of issues. Maybe drawing more attention to it will lead to more long-term fixes.

*jumps off soapbox* Anyway, regarding this crash, if it happens again, look for the following bits of info.

The crashed thread will test you which trace to post, which is the gobbledygook at the bottom of my quote. I'm guessing it'll be a Qt issue but I could be wrong.

Also, just curious, do you put your Mac to sleep often? I do get the odd crash on Yosemite after I've put my Mac to sleep something like 12-15 times, along with other odd behavior. Some of it might be Armory - I'm investigating right now - and some of it is almost certainly Qt (or Yosemite causing Qt to freak out).

Thanks for the response. I build the Bitcoin BD again but I still have the problem. I can not use Armory at all - while starting it always crashes.

It seems that you are and the problem is related to QT:

Yes, I do use the sleep function often - basically always, I never shut my mac down. But i also started to restart it, start BitcoinQt, start Amory -> same problem.

Hello. Is thread 0 the one that actually crashed? It could be a different one. The crash report will always say which one it is.

Armory Version 0.93.2
Bitcoind version 0.11.0 Running UNMANAGED by Armory
Builds: both x64
OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1 + all recent updates

Internet was down for a whole day and when it picked up again, bitcoind began quickly catching up with the network again, at first Armory ate the new blocks just fine but then it threw a "missing headers" error. When I restarted it rescanned the entire history, then there were no more issues.

The only thing I have in the log is this:

Code:
2015-08-16 11:16 (INFO) -- ArmoryQt.py:6249 - New Block! : 369959
2015-08-16 11:16 (INFO) -- ArmoryQt.py:6257 - Current block number: 369959

2015-08-16 11:30 (INFO) -- ArmoryUtils.pyc:1189 -

11:16 is when it crashed, 11:30 is when I came back to the PC to notice the crash and restarted it.

Possibly some bad blocks. Try to sync the testnet chain, see if you get the same symptoms.

Build ffreeze and try that instead.

I've been playing around with a "Hive" wallet on my iPhone for small change. They don't allow you to see the private key. Is there a way I can monitor, or add a watch-only wallet to my other Armory wallets using only the public keys from the Hive wallet?

This comes up regularly, to add a public key/adress to your Armory wallet.
Currently it is not possible, because this would be an attack vector, where the user believes he received a payment, but in fact only sees a payment on an adress he doesn't control.
The next suggestion was to clearly highlight those adresses, but as of now, nothing like that is possible.

I, for one, would like that feature as well. I would create a watching-only wallet with interesting external adresses.
Oh, wait, the name "watch-only wallet" is already occupied for something similar, but completely different in Armory.. See the problems?

Thanks for the explanation. Using my public addresses, I also use bitWallet on my iPhone to monitor the Armory wallets on my hot and cold computers. I never loaded any private keys to bitWallet so I can't spend the coins from bitWallet (except for those in a small spending wallet).

I like bitWallet for mobile monitoring because you can set it up to alert you for transactions. I always thought this was safe since even if my phone or bitWallet were compromised, only the small spending account would be at risk.

Now I'm wondering if this is safe to do, or am I missing something?

Technically it's safe, as there are no privkeys on your phone.
The attack vectors are, as so often, targeting the user. Tricking him to believe something was paid which wasn't (with somehow having the attackers watch-adresses added), or simply checking out the users watch-adresses-balance, and forcing him to give up the coins.
This will eventually be a problem, I suppose. That attackers find out the balance of someone, and simply use force to overcome any smart technical obstacle.
Oh, by the way, sadly, I own no bitcoins. At all.

I've been exploring and trying to set up my Windows-based online Armory (watch only) wallets in a Linux machine.

So far, Bitcoin Core was a breeze; setting up a different location for the blockchain database other than the default one is made easy as it is now an option during installation. I just copied the up-to-date Windows Bitcoin data over to the Linux location and didn't have to go through the complicated workaround outlined on the Armory support site (I did it for the my Windows Bitcoin Core and Armory installations). I was hoping that Armory would also have such option and allow me to just manually point it to the location of the Bitcoin data folder, wherever that might be.  Unfortunately, it doesn't. With the ever-increasing size of the Armory database along with the Bitcoin core blockchain data and thereby hogging precious SSD space exclusively reserved for system/app files, I thought this would already be an option in Armory (it already is in Bitcoin Core).

I hope that such an option would be incorporated in the next release. In the meantime, can anybody please advice me on a workaround so that I'll be able to define a different location for the Armory database/wallet files in the Linux machine with the intention of using my current Windows Armory database/wallet files with it (parallel setup)?

I am not very well-versed in Linux let alone its file system/structure...and Bash (not yet anyway). But as is obvious, I'm really trying to learn it as my trust in Windows is slowly but surely eroding day by day. Therefore, it is best to assume (for my sake) that I am completely a Linux virgin.

Lastly, my offline Armory is, of course, Windows-based (hopefully will someday be Linux). I assume that I could still use it to sign transactions generated by a Linux-based Armory, right?

Thanks in advance and apologies for the long tale.

Right click the Armory executable, find the tab (or whatever it is on Windows these days) where the target command line statement is. It should say something like "Armory.exe".

Append the argument "--satoshi-datadir=<your bitcoin core directory location here>" to the command. Should work.

The Armory settings confused me a little, but you also need to add start up switches. Read this thread for some help.

Thanks for the quick reply.

That's what I did in the Windows installations as outlined in the workaround on the Armory support page and they have been working flawlessly ever since. The following are my Windows shortcut parameters for both executables:

Code:
"C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe" -datadir="D:\Bitcoin"

Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Armory\ArmoryQt.exe" --skip-announce-check --satoshi-datadir="D:\Bitcoin" --datadir="D:\Armory"

As I alluded earlier, I have no clue as to where I'd put the Armory shortcut parameter in the Linux system (I already got Bitcoin Core running with an alternative database location/directory as it was an option during the Linux Bitcoin Core installation).

Ah, with Linux, do this:

  • Open bash/command line in your distro.
  • sudo vi /usr/share/applications/bitcoin-qt.desktop
(or whatever the bitcoin labelled file is named, check using command: ls -l /usr/share/applications/ )
  • Press i to begin editing (INSERT will appear at the bottom of the terminal window)
  • Add the "--datadir=" line to the executable command
  • Press i again
  • Type :wq then press return

You can check that the changes were written to the file properly by repeating step 2

But I already got Bitcoin Core running in the Linux machine with its ".bitcoin" data folder in a different drive/directory than the default one (defined through an option during installation which Armory doesn't afford).

I guess the crux of the matter of my inquiry is how do I tell Armory in the Linux machine to put/establish its ".armory" data folder in a different drive/directory than the default one as well. As a Linux noob, I haven't the foggiest. Is there a simple way for something that seems to be simple itself? Sorry for not being very clear about it initially.
