I installed a v.0.8.7 client and tried switching to Ropsten, following these instructions. Namely, I typed in:
dyn906-29:~ sam$ geth -- datadir /Users/sam/Library/Ethereum/testnet/geth/chaindata/ init /Users/sam/Library/Ethereum/testnet/testnet_genesis.json; geth -- datadir /Users/sam/Library/Ethereum/testnet/geth/chaindata/ --networkid 3 console
... synchronization started, with typical (i.e., after I let it run about 10 minutes) console output:
I1124 12:07:01.281067 eth/downloader/downloader.go:298] Synchronisation failed: block download canceled (requested) I1124 12:07:23.178469 core/blockchain.go:975] imported 3 block(s) (0 queued 0 ignored) including 0 txs in 1.001425657s. #84205 [dc3d3bcd / c0b43021] I1124 12:07:24.448356 core/blockchain.go:975] imported 3 block(s) (0 queued 0 ignored) including 2 txs in 8.001122ms. #84208 [e716f763 / 9cdfe671] I1124 12:07:33.003664 core/blockchain.go:975] imported 2048 block(s) (0 queued 0 ignored) including 1897 txs in 4.743529105s. #86256 [2c5e179c / dbc9325e] I1124 12:07:37.833884 core/blockchain.go:975] imported 2048 block(s) (0 queued 0 ignored) including 676 txs in 4.821595483s. #88304 [f9215a23 / 62150759]
What confuses me in this output it indicates I downloaded as many as 86256 blocks (see end of last line)... but I see here that there are only about 35000 blocks in the new testnet so far.
So I have the impression that I am synchronising with Morden..
1. Am I currently synchronizing with Morden (instead of with Ropsten)?
2. How can I make sure my Client is synchronizing with Ropsten?
EDIT: The GUI mentions a total of ca. 1,800 K blocks... so I am fairly positive my Client is synchronising with Morden. So how to move to Ropsten?
