Broken install how can I recup my funds

Hi,

I did "apt-get install geth" on my ubuntu 14.04 LTS server, then in geth I created a new account. Got some one to send me some ether at 0xae8f3c8d1134e50a7c63c39d78406ab7334149ac but when I "geth console" and

> eth.accounts
["0xae8f3c8d1134e50a7c63c39d78406ab7334149ac"]
> web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase), "ether")
0

I see a 0 balance. Any explanations or suggestions?

    Is your node synced with blockchain?

    No, taking for ever, here is the last few lines of output from geth console;

    Any explanation as to why the mist on my win machine synched up in less than 12 hours, and my linux box has been on it for more than 5 days?

    Sit back and relax - it takes a while. its gigs to download but the folder itself will become 10gb or so.

    Sometimes you have to close and restart geth. its isn't exactly enterprise software

    A few flags that help when running geth

    --maxpeers "100"
    --maxpendpeers " " << I tried 100 didnt work, tried 1 and 2 and worked better
    --lightkdf
    console (so you can see net.peerCount and other stuff

    You're looking at 1.2mil blocks as of now to catch up. </p>
    Thanks, finaly catched up - lookd good now. Regards, Louis
