Hey folks, I posted over on Gab.ai (which relayed to Twitter) about an update I made to an old v0.4.0 port of peercoin-qt for FreeBSD. On Twitter, @Peerchemist suggested I post here about the updated port, so here I am. I have compiled this successfully in multiple FreeNAS 9.3 jails and it’s running just fine.
This being my first post to this forum, I don’t know if uploads are permitted or if I’m doing this right, but if I am then you should see ppcoin.tgz attached to this post. I extracted this to /usr/ports/coins/ppcoin and it built fine. In my case, given the age of my system (9.3), the ports system whines about unsupported blah blah, so I had to add a few vars to /etc/make.conf to cross the finish line. Here is my /etc/make.conf:
I haven’t observed any ill side effects thus far, and am no expert on any of this, so build/run at your own risk… and enjoy!
