I've attempted to get monerod running on one of my Linux boxes, and keep getting an error during the initial synchronization. I've deleted the .bitmonero directory as well as the working directory, but get the same result. I was hoping the latest version released today might fix it, but the issue persists.

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is not a Monero problem (see andwer). Voting for deletion if possible.

The issue ended up being a bad stick of RAM. I removed the memory and the problem went away.
