I recently downloaded Bitcoin Core for OSX, sent a payment to my wallet address, then waited for the client to complete a sync. About 2 days later and w/ only 8 weeks to go, the client froze. Upon restart, it only gets to "Activating Best Chain" and won't open fully.
I've seen related answers to this question in the forum, but I think they're all for Windows machines.
I do have my wallet encrypted.
I'd like to export my wallet to another client, but apparently am not using the correct inputs in console. Any help much appreciated.
...and when I try to run: getwalletpassword "pwd" 600 the application crashes and I have to restart. So it doesn't look like the standard way to get my privkey out will work.
