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.
This repository uses thin manifests, which requires a moderately recent
portage to function correctly(18.104.22.168 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.

If I've forgotten to include your name I wholeheartedly apologise. Just drop me an email and I'll update the list!
Some of these contributors pre-date the move to GitHub, but if you have access to the AST overlay you can see their contributions in its repository history.
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
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
be added to the
overlays section of
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 -a jnrowe-misc
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
eix database at the same time, first tell
eix-sync to update the
# echo "jnrowe-misc" >>/etc/eix-sync.conf # Sync just jnrowe-misc # echo "*" >>/etc/eix-sync.conf # or sync all layman managed overlays
eix-sync to update the specified repositories and
cupage is used to keep packages in sync with their releases, see
cupage v0.5.5, or above, is required if you wish
to make use of this functionality.
