    im doing it from my laptop , i3 with 8gig of ram , ssd .

    So woke up today and i think it finished syncing , fire up feathercoin app and now i get an error message saying "connect a new block to chainactive , failed to read block " .and then shutsdown

    Tha hell is wrong with this wallet why is it only problems , what are the devs going to do if it ever becomes mainstream and everyone wants to buy themselves some FTC .

    i uninstalled and re installed but i still get the message . Do i have to delete everything again and download restart the whole process again ?

    @engetsu - I deleted the swearing as this is a highjack of someone else welcome thread.

    You can try : Start the client with the -reindex command-line option.

    Otherwise yes, the bitcoin programmers have included error checking in the code that you sometimes have to do something about , sorry.

    @engetsu - I appreciate your frustration. We are working to sort out all of these sync issues in our next release.

    if you’re on windows…

    • make a shortcut to feathercoin-qt on your desktop
    • right click and click properties
    • add the following to the end of the Target path

    "C:\Program Files\Feathercoin\feathercoin-qt.exe" -maxorphantx=5000 -maxblockorphans=12000 -dbcache=4096 -rescan

    let us know how you get on.


  • Regular Member | Tip Anema

    For your information guys this command line doesnt work

    “C:\Program Files\Feathercoin\feathercoin-qt.exe” -maxorphantx=5000 -maxblockorphans=12000 -dbcache=4096 -rescan

    Could you please go into more detail?

    “Doesn’t work” makes it hard for us to provide support.

    and to be honest I check those hash numbers by one by not all of them I dont know why it says Orphan


  • Moderators | Tip AcidD

    Hi @Anema

    this is the expected behaviour. You just need to leave your machine on and set it to not go onto standby or sleep mode.

    Leaving it on for 1 week 24/7 - and you can guarantee it’s been online that whole time… then something else might be wrong with your setup.

    The orphan blocks are blocks that have to be processed - in the past Feathercoin had attacks on it’s blockchain and this caused orphan chains to happen.


  • Regular Member | Tip Anema

    I think from now on the best thing to do just leave the computer open . About my setting I have no idea I just downloaded the setup and then Install it . I dont think I have a problem with my firewall or anything else. Ty for the info btw


  • | Tip Moonman

    I did a try from fresh, for the sake of benchmarking and potential useful info.
    So far, 36 weeks behind @2days 19hours, will report in upon completion.

    Whats the spec / memory CPU speed of the PC?


  • | Tip Moonman

    @wrapper
    will do a complete spec and times post when its complete, but its an hp tm2 touch laptop with core2duo cpu ~1.5sth ghz, 8gb ram (ddr3 800 if i remember well)


  • Regular Member | Tip Anema

    I really dont think this is about Computer speed

    DOES ANYONE HAVE A BOOTSTRAP LINK WHICH IS FREE TO DOWNLOAD?

    Hi, can you lay out all you research and evidence for your conclusion?

    Could do with a recent one being created.

    Ok, reporting in.
    Tested fresh download, install and sync.
    The sync ended last night (i was sleeping at the time), time now is +4d10h, so the sync stopped at about ~ +4d5h

    The sync was done on an HP TM2-2190,
    gpu is Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD (it has a switchable ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550 gpu but i wanted it to run cooler if it was about to stay on for a long time).
    Energy cpu profile was min5% max 100%.
    Resource monitoring showed an average cpu usage of
    core1: ~20% and core2: ~70%

    Internet connection is an ADSL2+ synced at 19mbps down/1mpbs up
    Internet interruption occured once a day - based on my router scheduling
    Internet outages - only Isp and God knows, forgot not to auto flush router log, sorry

    It is the CPU that matters, HP TM2-2190 is quite a “slow” (1.2GHz) notebook laptop. The 50% average CPU usage shows why it took 4 1/2 days…
