I'm having some problems getting started and I'm looking for a little validation.
I was unable to install/use both Geth and pyethapp on my win8 machine. Geth had errors installing, pyethapp wasn't able to launch presumably due to lack of c90 support in the compiler.
So i went to eth wwhich did install. All good.
I ran eth through the commandline and had to set a passphrase for my keystore and then it did a lot of stuff for about 30 minutes after which it stopped and occasionally shows a log message, but i don't see any console.
How do i get to the console? I presume i don't need the Genesis block for this? (I did generate it but didn't specify it as it only seemed neccessary for mining)
