Since the first sync (I copy the chaindata folder from my local machine to the RPI), every time I start the RPI it takes hours to just sync 20k blocks.

I tried geth --cache=512, etc.

I am using WIFI and the OS is the one given in http://ethembedded.com

  • What version of geth are you using? Have you tried the Rust or C++ clients? They're much faster. Sep 8, 2016 at 22:55
  • @TjadenHess hi. geth version 1.3.5. No i did not try parity. can I run it and copy the chaindata folder to it? or i have to sync all again? Sep 8, 2016 at 23:25
  • I have been using pre-compiled geth binary in a RPI for a while now and syncing is very fast. Try that. Also, what are the RPI specs?

  • @variable hi. It is RPI 3. So you recommend download it again all the blockchain? or use the pre-compiled and copy the chaindata into it? Sep 9, 2016 at 6:51
