When I execute
miner.start(1) in the geth console I get
I0503 10:43:45.019183 miner/worker.go:517] commit new work on block 29 with 0 txs & 0 uncles. Took 323.985µs and still stopped there without mining.
The difficulty isn't too high of the padding block (132480). I am using geth 1.5.9 on ubuntu 14.04. Can anyone help me please
