There is no bitcoind binary. You must start bitcoin-qt from the command line with the server flag, as John exemplified here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=88477.msg974150#msg974150. Leave that terminal open and open a new Terminal window. From the new terminal window you can pass it bitcoind commands as if bitcoind was running.

To dump a private key the syntax is (at least on linux, not sure if in Mac any other gimmick is needed)
Code:
bitcoind dumpprivkey <address>

replace <address> with the address for which you want to get the private key

If you run it in server mode, I don't think you can pass it commands directly without the curl scheme or json-rpc calls ...I've yet to fire up my mac though so I could be wrong.

hoonius,
is the coins in the 20 addresses already? If blockchain.info shows they're in, and your bitcoin client says not, then just dump the keys to online wallet, and send the balance to new wallet .

Extract the keys first, yes. Either by psy's way or pywallet will do. Then go make an account at blockchain.info, import the keys there, send the coins to your new wallet.

You can in Linux and Windows for sure. No Curl or json-rpc needed. On Mac...
Found the answer http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/2570/bitcoin-qt-command-line-control-on-mac
You really need to pass rpc commands with curl, like you said.

Time for you to install all the pywallet dependencies, hoonius. Can't find any rpc command or at least an example of it for dumpprivkey.

Install this : http://www.python.org/getit/releases/2.7/#download as osx's python is usually old (unless you're running lion though) for the BSDBB.

Code:
Mac OS X:
 1. Install MacPorts from http://www.macports.org/
 2. sudo port install python27 py27-twisted py27-pip py-bsddb python_select
 3. sudo port select --set python python27
 4. sudo easy_install ecdsa

run::

pywallet.py --dumpwallet --datadir=(location)

OK. Easy way, or not. First check if you have curl installed.
Open a Terminal and type curl and see if it gives you a positive answer. If you don't have the curl libraries maybe it's best to continue with pywallet Wink

If you have curl, maybe you want to try this, instead of installing more stuff. Even if you don't have curl and won't use it, maybe it will be useful to someone else Grin

Open your bitcoin.conf file and put this inside

Code:
rpcuser=<username>
rpcpassword=<password>
server=1
replace <username> and <password> with a username and password of your choice, ofcourse.

Start Bitcoin-qt in the normal way and it will start as a server.

Open a Terminal and type
Code:
curl --user <username> --data-binary '{"method": "dumpprivkey", "params": ["<address>"] }' http://127.0.0.1:8332/

replace <username> with the username you set on the bitcoin.conf file and <address> with the address for which you want to get the private key

Press enter. It will prompt you for the password you set on the bitcoin.conf file. Write it and press enter.
Voilá, it will answer with the private key for the address.

Repeat the Terminal steps for each address.

Why are you using xcode? You don't need to compile anything as far as I know...

Try rebooting, but do you have bootcamp or any other OS installed? Type python in Terminal and post the results, which version on earth are you running?

Have you tried the -rescan parameter? Try this with the old wallets in (the one with the 20 addresses that contain the coins.)

Code:
cd /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt.app/Contents/MacOS/
./Bitcoin-Qt -rescan

Great, go make an account at http://blockchain.info/wallet , login and go to the import/export tab.

Paste the JSON in the 'Import Wallet' tab. Afterwards, send the balance to your new wallet address.
