Hi guys,

I am running Ubuntu 11.10 on an eee pc (6 months old). I am a newbie to linux so please give me advice as if it was to your grandmother : ).

I Installed bitcoin today using https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=53791.0 (Thanks for that)
once installed bitcoin i went to the 'dash home' load bitcoin and it says loading addresses then dissapears

I have uninstalled bitcoin and reinstalled three times.
I have deleted the addr.dat file in .bitcoin folder
I have restarted several times
I have left it for a while
In the file I initially downloaded from bitcoin.org the read me file (down at the bottom) said there was a problem with one of the qt programs for the screen so i turned that off(uninstalled)

I have searched around this forum and others + google and can't seem to find an answer

Thanks for your assistance in advance

Ok got it working

The debug gave me this '22DbRunRecoveryException' to look up.

apparently 'This is a Berkeley DB version mismatch between the last and current version of bitcoin.

Recovery is:
make sure bitcoin is not running
cd into your .bitcoin directory
rm -rf db* database* .lock *.pid
'

I used this site https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues/809 (hope it is ok to post external links)

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction

Thanks from a new bitcoin user
