I'm new to ethereum, I followed the installation guide and chose to go with the Geth Go-implementation.

The first command i run was geth --console that downloaded all the blocks, one issue though is that it keeps doing so since blocks are mined quite often. Should I let it continue?

I'm using Ubuntu 14.4.

  • Hi and welcome to Ethereum.SE! It's not clear what you are asking here. Could you add some more details on what you want to do? And in addition, this might be too broad, please try to ask specific questions only and not more than one question per thread. – Waqar Lim Mar 17 '16 at 12:51

Type geth attach to recieve a console of your running geth instance and attach it to it.

After that you can run commands in that terminal. Try eth, net or admin.

Or for example to get the connected peers count:

> net.peerCount

Or check the latest block number:

> eth.blockNumber

Check out the full reference on command line options.
