Basically I'm trying to keep a wallet on linux along with the RPC service so I can receive coins and poll the server periodically for transactions.
I'm trying with both 0.8.1 and 0.8.5 and CPU usage is at 100%, running this on amazon and I get the same even with the xlarge EC2 instance. This has been going on for over 24 hours, had to force reboot the instance to be able to reconnect.
It's not even set to generate coins. gen=0
I guess I'd like to know if this is permanent, or a bug, or something I'm doing wrong? Or maybe it just takes a while to "sync" or whatever its doing then it will go back to "normal" and by normal I mean any level of CPU usage that isn't in the range of WTF and OMG.
Also tried sending myself some 0.01-0.05 btcs and they never made it. Maybe it takes a while to show up? Although blockchain says said transactions have over 100 confirmations.
