Hi
Just downloaded bitcoin-qt 0.6.2 on Ubuntu 12.04. My computer crashed for some reason with about 35000 to go on getting the block list. Now whenever I run it I get... Loading Block index... Runaway exception NSt8ios_base7failureECAutoFile::read: end of file. Any ideas?

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

Delete the blkindex.dat and blk0001.dat files that you find inside the .bitcoin folder inside your home dir and start over. If you can't see the folder press ctrl+H to unhide it.
Also, make sure you have at least 2GB free on your HDD.
