After the Github page 404'd they now host the binary on their own website according to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4432704.1520

0.20.3 is available like:

0.20.3 should be available. An update would be appreciated, and thanks for packaging in the first place.

Didn't realize there was guidelines for package descriptions @Hendrikto, thanks for pointing those out! Description updated :)

Hey, thanks for packaging this :)

I have an improvement request:

The package description does not follow the conventions, specifically:

  • "recommended to be 80 characters or less"
  • "should not include the package name"
  • does not end with a full stop

May I suggest "Cryptocurrency miner for NVIDIA hardware, supporting a variety of algorithms"?

Also, just as a note to the users: Since T-Rex is distributed as a binary, and source code is not even available, it is highly recommended to run this in an isolated environment.
