Here is how I am starting it up
eth --private 9195333 --genesis-json ~/test/genesis.json --db-path ~/.ethereum_experiment -i
And web3.fromWei(web3.eth.getBalance(web3.eth.accounts), "ether") returns 6290
When trying to deploy the greeter example in the testnet, I always get "waiting to be mined". I am aware of the fact that this has been asked before and that
being the only miner I should be mining constantly and also that the difficulty in genesis block should be low. But, nothing seems to work. I tried mining all the time with the primary account being the benefactor and also used this http://jev.io/genesis_block.json
as the genesis file(changed difficulty to 0x0000000 and increased gas limit) but in vain. Any help will be appreciated.
PS: A total newb here. Please point out any mistake I made. Thank you.
