Hi first post for bitcointalk Cheesy
I been messing around with bitcoin for a while and decided to make a post I need a little help understanding bitcoind
my brain cant seem to put everything in order and what I am suppose to do.

I downloaded python spent hours figuring out how to install modules and managed to do that... pretty sure ;p
Then I can't seem to figure out how to get bitcoind working. Whenever I put conf file into right place and start it, its blank and crashes when I exit.
When I leave the hashtags it says I should use recommended passwords...

I spent sometime looking in bitcoin forum spent at least 3 hours trying to figure this out I am no expert with programming at all and I have hit a wall and had to make a post:/.


If anyone could help me with the steps or have a tutorial that be great.
I can't seem to find anything about bitcoind.

# bitcoin.conf configuration file. Lines beginning with # are comments.

 ##############################################################
 ##            Quick Primer on addnode vs connect            ##
 ##  Let's say for instance you use addnode=4.2.2.4          ##
 ##  addnode will connect you to and tell you about the      ##
 ##    nodes connected to 4.2.2.4.  In addition it will tell ##
 ##    the other nodes connected to it that you exist so     ##
 ##    they can connect to you.                              ##
 ##  connect will not do the above when you 'connect' to it. ##
 ##    It will *only* connect you to 4.2.2.4 and no one else.##
 ##                                                          ##
 ##  So if you're behind a firewall, or have other problems  ##
 ##  finding nodes, add some using 'addnode'.                ##
 ##                                                          ##
 ##  If you want to stay private, use 'connect' to only      ##
 ##  connect to "trusted" nodes.                             ##
 ##                                                          ##
 ##  If you run multiple nodes on a LAN, there's no need for ##
 ##  all of them to open lots of connections.  Instead       ##
 ##  'connect' them all to one node that is port forwarded   ##
 ##  and has lots of connections.                            ##
 ##       Thanks goes to [Noodle] on Freenode.               ##

check debug.log in the bitcoin data directory ~/.bitcoin

You may also want to set something for rpcuser and rpcpassword

here is your error, lets see what google says.

unfortunately it looks like an resolved bug, have you tried starting with a clean bitcoin data dir ? remember to backup your wallet.dat
