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
