When I'm syncing the blockchain for the fist time, I have this error message 8 times

2016-Sep-26 19:58:50.608535 [P2P3]ERROR /tmp/monero/src/monero-0.10.0/src/cryptonote_core/blockchain.cpp:1835 Ours and foreign blockchain have only genesis block in common... o.O

2016-Sep-26 19:58:51.845898 [P2P9][ OUT]Sync data returned unknown top block: 1 -> 1144519 [1144518 blocks (888 days) behind]


and then I only have the regular information message

Synced 401/1144519

Should I care about this error message?

Nothing to worry, when you are starting to sync and theres a node trying to sync with you, it sends the list of blocks it has for catching up but since you have nothing but the genesis block you see this message.

  • If it's not really an error shouldn't the language of the messages be adjusted? Commented Nov 11, 2016 at 1:41

    That message has been fixed already in git master. Won't appear in v0.10.1.
