Hi,

I have bitcoind running (because bitcoin-qt crashed several times when running with p2pool)

Question: How to start a graphical frontend for bitcoind? bitcoind-qt won't run (because it can't get a lock blu bla ...).

What to do?

cheers,
F.

Run with admin privileges? I'm not familiar with the problem.

Edit: Oh, wait -- you may need to close the other client you have running, then start up the GUI.

I believe he wants to run the GUI while bitcoind is already up and running, without shutting down bitcoind first.

I would love to be able to do this as well, but I've never read anything suggesting this was possible. Of course, I'm a complete noob when it comes to much of this technical stuff.
Maybe Armory could work? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=56424.0

The regular bitcoin-qt can't do it as far as I know.  Just stop bitcoind, then run "bitcoin-qt -server".  It will start the QT gui and -server makes it also act as a bitcoind at the same time.

QT has proven unstable in a mining situation, which is the probable reason for this thread.

My solution has been to learn to manipulate my wallet while running bitcoind.

White bitcoin-qt isn't an option, there are other frontends that can connect to a bitcoind server:

Unfortunately no.  Spinner uses BCCAPI to talk to a server.  If you made a BCCAPI server that then talked to your bitcoind it could work, but I have no idea if there's any support for that in spinner.

You could easily have multiple wallets though.  Have a spinner wallet (or bitcoin-qt) for daily use and a separate one for mining.  Create a short script to keep sending all your mining revenues to the spinner wallet, and you're set.

Unfortunately, stopping bitcoind... well sucks. QT has proven unstable in a mining situation, which is the probable reason for this thread.

Yes, this was exactly the reason Smiley

QT sucks while mining. So I use bitcoind. I just like to have a frontend for it now (to connect to a running bitcoind).

How does this look?  It's a front-end GUI I wrote that talks to bitcoind while I'm mining p2pool.
Right now it just shows balance, block count and transaction history.
I just start it and hit refresh when I want an update.  I'm planning on adding 5 second polling and a couple other features.  I don't plan on implementing the full bitcoin-qt functionality.


You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.

In case you get no reply, I could cook up such a little GUI if you are willing to make a donation.
