I'm following the steps from this URL: https://theethereum.wiki/w/index.php/The_DAO_Refunds#How_Do_I_Withdraw_The_DAO_ETH_Refund_Using_Go_Ethereum.3F

"How Do I Withdraw The DAO ETH Refund Using Go Ethereum?"

Specifically this line right here is causing the error: var approve = theDAO.approve(theDAOWithdrawalAddress, theDAO.balanceOf(account), {from: account});

Is there a way to adjust the instructions in the above link to lower the block gas limit or..?


You can specify your own gas limit by including the gas option in the transaction object passed in.

theDAO.approve(theDAOWithdrawalAddress, theDAO.balanceOf(account), {from: account, gas:<GAS_LIMIT_VALUE>});

See the web3js documentation for all of the available options.

When not specified, it'll use a default value determined by recent activity on the blockchain (which is usually around 8 million. You can get the current default gas limit here)
