FreeBSD 10 with VMWare and Xorg

The official VMware Tools for FreeBSD 10 needs to be patched in order for it to build properly. For VMware Workstation 8, 9 ,10, and ESXi 5.x you will need to download the following patches:

FreeBSD rc.d Scripts for Crypto Coins (Bitcoin and Litecoin)

This is a set of new and improved rc.d scripts for Bitcoin, Litecoin, and it's derivatives. These new scripts include better process management, automatic data directory creation, and the ability to run as a non-root user.

PowerPC and Cell BE Processor Optimized CPU Miner for FreeBSD

This is a FreeBSD port of the PowerPC optimized version of pooler's cpuminer. This version contains optimizations for PowerPC (Power Mac) and Cell/BE (PlayStation 3). These optimizations should improve performance on many other PowerPC hardware by using Altivec instructions.

FreeBSD Ports for Many Alternative Crypto Currencies

It seems like a new coin pops up every 5 minutes now. Rather than create a page for each one I design a port for, I am instead going to list them all (from now on) in one area.

So if your eager to try out the latest coin on your FreeBSD system, check here to see if I've made a port.

Install Catcoin on FreeBSD

Catcoin and OrangeCat are a cat versions of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm but using the same blockchain parameters as Bitcoin. I've created this port to make installing Catcoin on FreeBSD is very easy. Catcoin is for the original and not the forked version of 1/4/2014. OrangeCat is the forked version.

Install NBcoin on FreeBSD

The NBcoin digital currency is probably a dead coin at this point, but so long as someone wants it I guess it could still be revived. I've made installing NBcoin on FreeBSD is very easy.

Install Zetacoin on FreeBSD

Zetacoin is a digital currency that is similar to Bitcoin but with faster conformation times and quicker difficulty adjustments. Installing Zetacoin on FreeBSD is very easy.

Problem with USB Devices on USB Hubs that Won't get Recognized after Rebooting Windows

A problem that you may run into with some poorly designed USB hubs is that the devices attached or plugged into the hub will no longer show up or get recognized in Windows after your system has been rebooted.    You try powering it off and on, then unplug it, re-plug, reboot, etc...
Windows may even hang during boot while the USB hub is plugged in.

How to Build Terracoin on Ubuntu Linux

Yet another SHA256 crypto-currency based on Bitcoin. Terracoins are issued to enduser nodes that verify transactions through computing power; it is established that there will be a limited and scheduled release of no more than 42 million coins.

To build Terracoin on Ubuntu is very simple as long as you are using the correct version of the operating system.

How to Build OpenSource Coin on Ububtu Linux

Yet another SHA256 crypto-currency based on Bitcoin. According to the developers OpenSource Coin (OCoin) is is a SHA 256 POW/POS cryptocurrency with 1 minute block times, transaction messages and starting diff of 1, and a total of 21 million coins to be minted proof of work and unlimited proof of stake.

To build OpenSource Coin on Ubuntu is very simple as long as you are using the correct version of the operating system.
