Geth command getting stuck

0 votes

I'm trying to install ethereum using the link below;

https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki/Installation-Instructions-for-Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install ethereum

then run 

geth account new

Now it is just stuck there. Does this process take too much time?

Creating new account should not take more than few mins. I think you missed running testrpc. For geth to run, you need to run a virtual network which can be done by testrpc.

Open another terminal run the following to start geth:

$ testrpc

Now you can run the geth command and it should hopefully
