New to Peercoin, have just one question

How can I tell if the Linux Peercoin Core wallet is making actual progress with downloading the blockchain? All I’m seeing right now is a “Warning: Checkpoint is too old” in the spot where I can normally watch the progress being made with downloading the blockchain.

I’m using Peerunity on Ubuntu-Linux. When the complete blockchain has been downloaded, that warning message will disasppear and a green checkmark will appear on the right lower panel of the window.

tail ~/.ppcoin/debug.log

will tell you what is going on.
