I opened a shell and creat a new account and use "miner.start()" than i opened a new shell and use "geth attach" command but failed, and the error message is

Fatal: Unable to attach to remote geth: dial unix /home/hzxscyq/.ethereum/geth.ipc: connect: no such file or directory

then i try "geth" and the error message is

Fatal: Error starting protocol stack: listen udp :30303: bind: address already in use

i want to know how to use geth attach?

The geth.ipc gets created when Geth is succesfully launched.It looks like another Geth instance is already running,which could be stopping the succesful launch.Find that Geth process and kill it.

ps -eaux | grep "geth"

Get the process id and kill that process using

kill -9 <pid>

Now invoke geth and attach to it
