Cryptocoin Gentoo ebuilds

By , 13/01/2014 23:54

I was playing around a bit with cryptocoins but was missing quite some ebuilds. As most of them don’t diverge to far from the reference Bitcoin client it is however quite easy to set them up. Usually copying the ebuild is enough, sometimes some more adaptations are needed.

To make it easier for anyone I created an overlay on GitHub so you don’t have to redo my work:

I’m not going to describe how to add the overlay to your portage, there are guides enough for that. Don’t forget to unmask the packages.

At the moment there are ebuilds for following currencies:

FRC (Freicoin)
RPC (RonPaulCoin)
DOGE (dogecoin, such profit!)

If while you are testing out your shiny new client you want to donate to me for some basic copy/paste and editing work you can do so at:

FRC 12W1M5LRsCAmLWZfUhfkRzpqJfaLEzN7M5
RPC RJudw63kAs19agortQk45ks6nLXCdQZSVx
DOGE DJS6nuKu3n84zV86Qb7crFMcL8XzTc6kUv

Or you can just Flattr this post!

Flattr this!
