jnrowe-misc

Important

As of 2014-06-26, the jnrowe-misc repository is shuttered. The environments where I use Gentoo have vanished, and I don't expect any to arise in the near future.

I plan on maintaining the packages in this overlay for as long as people report bugs, but won't promise speedy bug resolution.

What this repository really needs is a new maintainer, so if you're a user it is time to step up!

This repository is for packages that don't naturally fit in to my other themed overlays.

If you find any problems with this overlay then please either file an issue or drop me an email.

Warning

This repository uses thin manifests, which requires a moderately recent version of portage to function correctly(2.1.10.18 or newer). Using older versions is not supported!

You can read the full documentation online, or in the doc directory if you prefer the reST source.

oilman integration

If you use oilman to manage your repositories you can call:

# oilman --add-repository jnrowe::misc

Or, if you'd rather use the rsync mirror:

# oilman --method=rsync --add-repository jnrowe::misc

To sync the repository:

# oilman --sync jnrowe::misc  # Sync this repository only
# oilman --sync all  # or sync all repositories

layman integration

If you use layman to sync your repositories you can easily add this repository to the supported list.

If you're using layman v1.2.4 or newer, then the support/layman2.xml should be added to the overlays section of /etc/layman/layman.conf, for example:

overlays  : http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/overlays/repositories.xml
            https://github.com/JNRowe/jnrowe-misc/raw/master/support/layman2.xml

If you're using layman v1.2.3 or earlier, then support/layman.xml should be added to the overlays section of /etc/layman/layman.conf, for example:

overlays  : http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/overlays/layman-global.txt
            https://github.com/JNRowe/jnrowe-misc/raw/master/support/layman.xml

Then you can add the overlay using layman:

# layman -a jnrowe-misc

Note

You may need to run layman --fetch or perform a sync operation before this command will work.

To sync the repository you can use layman directly, either syncing just this overlay or all your overlays at once:

# layman -s jnrowe-misc  # Sync just jnrowe-misc
# layman -S  # or sync all layman managed overlays

Or if you're an eix user you can use eix-sync to update the repositories and the eix database at the same time, first tell eix-sync to update the repository:

# echo "jnrowe-misc" >>/etc/eix-sync.conf  # Sync just jnrowe-misc
# echo "*" >>/etc/eix-sync.conf  # or sync all layman managed overlays

Finally, call eix-sync to update the specified repositories and eix package database.

cupage integration

cupage is used to keep packages in sync with their releases, see support/cupage.conf. cupage v0.5.5, or above, is required if you wish to make use of this functionality.
