I read it and it makes sense... i am away from my dev environment atm.
I will try it though... 5th may be able to confirm as well...
5th got it working via his/her own method, told us in IRC

I will NEVER ask for any kind of funds up front in a buy/sale of anything on bitcointalk.

Currently we're working on an easy (easier) genesis block creation method, and rebranding of the client.

This is fun Cheesy

Very nice work, guys.  Thank you for the thread, and thank you for investing in yourselves.  Do you realize how many more altcoin/bitcoin developers were just born today on this thread?

Can someone post some sort of guide, please? Throughout the thread I have lost track of the process (what variables to edit mainly). We also don't really have a post explaining how to get the genesis block started. Sorry, but as the name of the coin suggests (noobcoin) I'm new to this, and don't have much coding experience.

Were you able to work through the instructions in that MultiCoin genesis block page?  I've been aware of it for some time and wishing I had time to try it out.

(Guess I'll live vicariously through you hardworking altcoin devs!)

When and if it comes out and works, I'll post how to make one.

Hi  Grin

Read this thread about calculating the merkle root: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=12727.0
It is calculated from the hashes of all the transactions present in the block.

Then, look at this page: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Genesis_block

There is 1 transaction in that genesis block; The first 50 bitcoins.
Quote
CBlock(hash=000000000019d6, ver=1, hashPrevBlock=00000000000000, hashMerkleRoot=4a5e1e, nTime=1231006505, nBits=1d00ffff, nNonce=2083236893, vtx=1)
  CTransaction(hash=4a5e1e, ver=1, vin.size=1, vout.size=1, nLockTime=0)
    CTxIn(COutPoint(000000, -1), coinbase 04ffff001d0104455468652054696d65732030332f4a616e2f32303039204368616e63656c6c6f7 2206f6e206272696e6b206f66207365636f6e64206261696c6f757420666f722062616e6b73)
    CTxOut(nValue=50.00000000, scriptPubKey=0x5F1DF16B2B704C8A578D0B)
Transaction hash is '4a5e1e'. (First 3 bytes ?)

The merkle root of the genesis block:

Quote
hashMerkleRoot = 0x4a5e1e4baab89f3a32518a88c31bc87f618f76673e2cc77ab2127b7afdeda33b

and further down the page (read right to left)
Quote
3BA3EDFD7A7B12B27AC72C3E67768F617FC81BC3888A51323A9FB8AA4B1E5E4A - merkle root



Maybe the merkle root of the genesis block is the same as the hash of its only transaction?

Yes, it is.  The merkle root is the root hash of the hash tree for the transactions.  In the case of a block with only a coinbase transaction (the only required one) it's simply the hash of the coinbase transaction.

If you're trying to get the merkle root hash for the genesis block, just hash the coinbase tx twice or SHA256(SHA256(coinbase transaction))
