I've had my bitcoin client running for 2 days now and it is still not caught up. Was on 5.x, upgraded to 6.2 today. I have plenty of connections, that is not the problem.
The files blk0001.dat and blkindex.dat in my btc folder are staying the same size and bitcoin-qt is showing that I have downloaded 182553 blocks. It's also saying last downloaded block was 6 days ago. Yesterday it said 5 days ago. As of right now, the latest block is 183572. It only took 2 hours to load the blocks when I first started bitcoin-qt 8 months ago, so 48 hours makes me think something is wrong.
Using W7 64 bit, not a firewall or port issue.
I'd really like to figure this out as I should have been receiving bitcoins since 6 days ago. Got nothing in my wallet since it won't catch up.
The debug log keeps showing these 2 errors in succession, I edited out the hashes a little bit since I'm not sure if publicly displaying that can compromise my anonymity or security.
ERROR: FetchInputs() : dxxxxxxxe4 mempool Tx prev not found f3xxxxxx44
ERROR: CTxMemPool::accept() : FetchInputs failed dxxxxxxx4
I'd appreciate the help, can't post in the help section since I don't have enough posts
Mine did this as well, even though I reset the block chain twice.
I was able to complete the blockchain after downloading the snapshot.
(on ubuntu 12.04)
oh, and the block sizes are much larger now, esp thx to that satoshi dice crap.
