I have used Bitcoin previously via Windows GUI miners, but never faced an issue like this before. I am now running Ubuntu 12.04 amd64 and using an updated 0.7.1 Satoshi client.
The sync looks like it is working, but the first block never loads. I have had the wallet synchronizing, but it is forever stuck at zero. My Internet connection is fine and have cleared the bitcoin directory and rebooted with no change.
While I am writing this I am watching my other rig drop blocks fine and its running Mint 13 with about a third of the resources I have on the computer giving the issues.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
