[OS X] how to install Minepeon on SD-card

Download the latest version of Minpeon at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/minepeon/files/release/

All info about Minepeon : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137934.0

I downloaded version Minepeon 0.2.4 : MinePeon-0.2.4.img

Insert a SD card (I used a Sandisk SDHC Ultra 8GB class 4 15MB/s).

Open Terminal. List your devices

df -l

Filesystem   512-blocks      Used Available Capacity  iused    ifree %iused  Mounted on
//dev/disk1s1   15511808      4800  15507008     1%        0        0  100%   /Volumes/SD

Unmount the SD Card

diskutil unmountdisk /dev/disk1

Unmount of all volumes on disk1 was successful

go to your download directory, on my macbook:

cd downloads

Transfer/make the Minepeon image to the SD-card

sudo dd if=MinePeon-0.2.4.img of=/dev/rdisk1 bs=1m

WARNING: Improper use of the sudo command could lead to data loss 
or the deletion of important system files. Please double-check your
typing when using sudo. Type “man sudo” for more information.

 To proceed, enter your password, or type Ctrl-C to abort.


Enter your (OSX) password and be patient, it’s buidling and copying the image to the SD-card. After some time you will see a message like this:

1886+0 records in
1886+0 records out
1977614336 bytes transferred in 164.969810 secs (11987735 bytes/sec)

this means all went succesful and we can eject the SD-card

diskutil eject /dev/disk1

Disk /dev/disk1 ejected

Now you pull out the SD-Card and put in your Raspberry Pi and start it all up.
