geth with the following command. When I try to start Mist I get an error
30303: bind: address already in use. Why and how can I fix it?
This is the command I use to run
geth --datadir /media/user/sdcard/chaindata --ipcdisable console
The command specifies that the blockchain data should be downloaded to the SD card rather than to the internal hard drive. It works fine for running
But when I try to start Mist I get various error message such as:
Node type: geth Network: main Platform: linux (Architecure x64) ...11.167721 ethdb/database.go:82] Alloted 512MB cache and 1024 file handles to /home/ativera/.ethereum/chaindata I0531 20:35:11.464852 ethdb/database.go:169] closed db:/home/ativera/.ethereum/chaindata I0531 20:35:11.465825 ethdb/database.go:82] Alloted 512MB cache and 1024 file handles to /home/ativera/.ethereum/chaindata I0531 20:35:11.587973 ethdb/database.go:82] Alloted 16MB cache and 16 file handles to /home/ativera/.ethereum/dapp I0531 20:35:11.844313 eth/backend.go:170] Protocol Versions: [63 62 61], Network Id: 1 I0531 20:35:11.844786 eth/backend.go:199] Blockchain DB Version: 3 I0531 20:35:11.845385 core/blockchain.go:206] Last header: #0 [d4e56740…] TD=17179869184 I0531 20:35:11.845421 core/blockchain.go:207] Last block: #0 [d4e56740…] TD=17179869184 I0531 20:35:11.845440 core/blockchain.go:208] Fast block: #0 [d4e56740…] TD=17179869184 I0531 20:35:11.846587 p2p/server.go:311] Starting Server Fatal: Error starting protocol stack: listen udp :30303: bind: address already in use
Why do I get the error message and more importantly, what should I do to be able to make Mist actually run when I start
geth the way I do as specified above?
