I am new to Tezos and I installed yesterday a node to run in the Alphanet environment. I want to ask if it is normal that the node is taking too long to synchronize (Current head at block 45000 after almost one day). Is there any way to accelerate the process? Another issue is that the node stops sometimes unexpectedly. This is an example of the error resulting in the issue.
Does anyone understand the problem? And is there any way to avoid that?
