am using geth


and ethereum wallet Ethereum-Wallet-linux64-0-9-3 and i am using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS in the geth console i started the miner but either is not incrementing it stays at 0 and also on the wallet it shows 0 peers and 0 waiting for blocks i stared to start and stop the minor several times with miner.start(1); and miner.stop() on the geth console it only says

INFO [12-14|18:34:31.542] Transaction pool price threshold updated price=1000000000
INFO [12-14|18:34:31.543] Commit new mining work                   number=1 sealhash=9091da…9b902a uncles=0 txs=0 gas=0 fees=0 elapsed=468.863µs

here is my genesis file

        "chainId": 45,
        "homesteadBlock": 0,
        "eip155Block": 0,
        "eip158Block": 0,
        "byzantiumBlock": 12
"nonce": "0x0000000000000042",
"timestamp": "0x0",
"parentHash": "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000",
"extraData": "0x",
"gasLimit": "0x8000000",
"difficulty": "0x200",
"config": {},
"mixhash": "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000",
"coinbase": "0x3333333333333333333333333333333333333333", "alloc": {}

the expected behavior is there should be either in my main account continuously incrementing and numbers of blocks as well

  • What is the command line you use to launch geth? Did you create an account? Check the output from geth perhaps an error causes mining to not start. – Ismael Dec 18 '18 at 21:08
