Thanks! It was indeed still running. I killed it, started postgresql.app, and now i finally managed to install hbase. Thanks a million!

comment How to install hstore in Postgresql on Mac OSX?
btw: I tried a simple 'brew uninstall postgresql', but that results in Error: No such keg: /usr/local/Cellar/postgresql. Any ideas how I could uninstall it fully?

I thought that as well, but the folder /usr/local/Cellar/postgresql/ doesn't even exist, let alone anything below that. I guess that I really uninstalled the brew version of postgres. Or do you think it still exists after all? In that case, would you have any idea how to uninstall it?

comment Why does my virtual image use more than 3x as much space as the combined file system?
Hmmm, it is quite weird though. As soon as I start the the bitcoind again, the .vdi becomes instantly 11GB again, and after getting some more blocks, it is again 20GB. I'm doing the same trick again (from the other answer), and see if I can do it a couple times until I can download all blocks..

Awesome!Using the tricks in this answer() totally solved it! The .vdi is now back to a reasonable 6.8GB, Thanks for all the tips!

According to this link (blockchain.info/charts/blocks-size) the current size is almost 13GB. Seeing that I was at more than two thirds of the blocks by count I should have about 8GB of blockchain data by now. That still doesn't explain the 22GB. Lastly, I looked around Virtualbox options, but I can't find anything about compressing. Would you happen to have a tip on where to find that in Virtualbox?

The problem is that I have no space left on my laptop to continue downloading the blockchain. The clean installation of the Ubuntu Server was 1.6GB large, which grew progressively together with the /home/kramer65/.bitcoin/blocks/ folder. Even if the blockchain is 10GB, how can the virtual drive then already be 22GB?

@Ramhound - About the blockchain: it didn't finish downloading yet, so I didn't know how large it was in total. Regarding your question on the "No such file or directory" messages: the folder /proc/1094/ doesn't seem to exist at all. I added a screenshot of the contents of /proc/ folder. Does that tell you anything? (the contents of the /proc/ folder is a step outside of my knowledge..)

comment How to activate swap on Linux? “swapon -a” doesn't seem to work?
Ah, thanks for the explanation. When running sudo lvdisplay -C I get an error saying: "sudo: lvdisplay: command not found". So I guess I am using something else (right?). Would you have any idea what I should do now?

1) sudo: /sbin/lvmdump: command not found. 2) I've never seen my pc ask for a password before my login screen. The link you give revers to Ubuntu 5.10 and 6.06, is that information still valid? (ps. thanks for your efforts!)

Oh, and 3) I can't find any errors in boot.log. Would you have any other tip on how I could proceed from here?

1) sudo: lvmdump: command not found. 2) I always log in using my normal password which hasn't changed in ages. I think I indeed selected "encrypted" wherever possible when I installed Ubuntu, so could it have something to do with the fact that I disabled swap using 'sudo swapoff -a' and after that rebooted (many times in fact)?
