edgets The main goal of edgets overlay is to bring you the newest versions of modern software available across the internet.

Getting started

Edgets is available through layman, so all you need to do is install layman (if you don't have already) and add an overlay.

# emerge --ask app-portage/layman
# layman --sync-all
# layman --add edgets

More information about layman usage here.

Unmasking packages

Most of the packages are masked, so you have to unmask them or tell portage to do so.

# emerge --ask <package-name> --autounmask   # type yes
# dispatch-conf                              # press u

More information about unmasking here.

Installing packages

Now, when overlay is added and package unmasked, you are ready to install it.

# emerge --ask <package-name>

Upgrading packages

Synchronize overlay tree and unmask newest version of package.

# layman --sync edgets
# emerge --ask <package-name> --autounmask   # type yes
# dispatch-conf                              # press u
# emerge --ask <package-name>

You can use >= in /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords/package.accept_keywords to avoid manual unmasking for every version bump.
