I've followed the tutorial provided in this answer:

How do I access information on blockexplorer.com or blockchain.info without issuing requests to those websites?

But there aren't any instructions on how to get and run bitcoind first as Abe requires the genesis blocks.

In addition, I am getting the following error when trying to synchronize:

$ python -m Abe.abe --config=abe-sqlite.conf --commit-bytes 100000 --no-serve

failed to load /home/bitcoin/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/home/bitcoin/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf'
catch_up_rpc: abort

I have bitcoind installed on my ubuntu server:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install bitcoind
$ bitcoind

What should I put in my config file? What else does Abe require from bitcoind?
