Do any Mac OSX versions of vanitygen exist that are downloadable as binaries so we can execute them without having to compile from source?  (ideally, versions without embedded virii ;-)

if not, can someone who has compiled the mac version, make it available on dropbox or somewhere?

thanks

I never got it working on mac after endless attempts, never found a binary either. I ended up installing linux and using that instead. You might be able to use a virtual machine if you don't want to dual boot.

Vanitygen can be installed quite easily via Homebrew if you install this brew repository

If I have an old scrypt miner with a r9 290 GPU, would that be usable to generate my address? If so, would this be magnitudes faster than using a intel quadcore with hyperthread?

Sorry for the basic question, just started dabbing into vanity addresses.

Yes orders of magnitude faster, but as has come up many times here before, you'll probably need to use an older driver version.

Thanks for reply. Can you please point me to what page is appropriate to start reading this thread when it comes to newer R9 series GPU? Last I've tried, these GPU's can only backtrack to certain drivers.

I would also like to know this since over the last month I've gotten rid of most of my pre-R9 cards and sure enough it doesn't work on my 280x now.

GPU address searching is done with oclvanitygen. ocl = OpenCL = computing on your video card. However, that newer GPU will have a finicky setup, requiring a specific driver version and a modded version of this program. You might search this entire thread and the "lifeboat" vanitygen thread to see if anybody has gotten that particular GPU working, to discover their settings.

Yeah, I guess this needs to be updated with the latest hardware, that or the old software version should be maintained (or archived) or packaged or something. Those older driver's may get lost one of these days, or deleted from the official AMD servers.

If you need one send me a message Cheesy
I can generate it without all the information thanks to the bitaddress process that you can send to me and I'm going to generate your address with my computer  Wink

Cheers!

well, at least it's not complaining about a missing file anymore - progress ;)

But it says it can take minute, then nothing happens :/
It exits for some reason.
OMG. I just tried this out. It says compiling. This can take a minute or something.
Then it said Done! And then my computer crashed. It didn't turn on for 2 minutes and now the screens have no signal. Do you guys think my computer is destroyed?

Edit:
Connected screen to motherboard (bypassing Graphics Card)
Oh shit, my graphics card isn't being detected. FML. I'm going to I get into so much trouble. Fuck.
Ok rerunning Windows experience Index
Previous score: 7.6
New score: 5.6 OH SHIT IM FUCKED.

And what was the lowest score? Gaming Graphics. FROM AN R9 290X!

Edit 2:
Ok now I'm going to download Amd Catalyst Drivers again and install them. I hope this works.

Was I supposed to use oclvanityminer? Because I used oclvanitygen.
I am sorry for what has happened, but I can't be held responsible for that, you clearly have had some issues with your card(*cough* overheating *cough*).
Well I sent my card in to get repaired. It was under warranty so it's all good.
It came back today and I don't think I'll ever use this program unless it has R9 support. Which it didn't. (And I didn't know): <--bracket and a smiley face at the same time!!

A graphics card would help a lot. For me it took just about 1 hour to generate six characters. Can you tell me how much keys are you getting per sec?
