when starting out geth I cant download past block 1292880

enter image description here

does anyone have any idea why it would not download any more blocks?

  • Hi there. A couple of things to check. Firstly, check you have some peers by running admin.peers from Geth's console (by attaching if necessary). Next, you could try restarting Geth with a higher logging verbosity. Try --verbosity 5 or --verbosity 6. – Richard Horrocks Apr 16 '17 at 15:44
  • when I type in admin.peers it shows me not much connections... when I put in cmd geth --verbosity 6 it starts goin but doesnt seems like it downloads blocks because the count of the blocks remaining the same 1292880 after running it for quite some time. – Alex Kramer Apr 16 '17 at 23:11
  • most of my peers looking like that: with the difficulty and version marked in red caps: ["eth/63"], id: "07602a45f621149610043265c95644c7d1a663bd3c207c96ec51ef9be28b128f765fa27f1e08fa94cfcf78a29a37d46d52ffbfb2fd2730298f11eebfba92b4c2", name: "Geth/v1.5.9-stable-a07539fb/darwin/go1.7.4", network: { localAddress: "", remoteAddress: "" }, protocols: { eth: { difficulty: 17179869184, head: "0xd4e56740f876aef8c010b86a40d5f56745a118d0906a34e69aec8c0db1cb8fa3", version: 63 } – Alex Kramer Apr 16 '17 at 23:26
  • UPDATE: let the --verbosity 6 run and it showed me where the file was corrupted. Deleted the .ldb file from the blockchain and it seems to be working now. Thank you very much Richard Horrocks! – Alex Kramer Apr 17 '17 at 1:48
