Gentoo Overlay Project

Tip Me via PayPal

Primary purpose is for Second Life with the following added:

  • Working streaming media on 64-bit systems.
  • Working vivox on 64-bit builds.
  • Spacenav 3D joystick support.
  • Many build fixes, no more stupid gcc errors that prevent builds.
  • Some pjira bugfix patches.
  • Some pjira feature add patches.
  • A few third party patches that are useful to the everyday user while not interfering with the existing User Interface. IE:One can not or turn off the feature within the client.

To use my overlay

As root:

layman -f -a Techwolf -o 'http://techwolf.github.io/overlays.xml'

Or if using paludis:

playman --layman-url http://techwolf.github.io/overlays.xml -a techwolf

"emerge -av secondlife" for the main client or "emerge -av firestorm-hg" for the firestorm client

The secondlife package (that is no longer) provided by portage differs from this overlay:

  • No voice support in the portage provided ebuild.
  • No USE flags support for vivox, openal, webkit, gstreamer, fmod, or dbus in the portage provided ebuild.
  • Joystick INTENDEDLY disabled in the portage provided ebuild. This includes all joysticks, including the spacenav 3D joystick.
  • The ebuilds in this overlay provide full joystick support, voice support, USE flag support.

Optional USE flags

  • openal: Enable the openal soft sound system, default on.
  • vivox: Enable the voice support. This binary requires some 32-bit libs on 64-bit system. The 64-bit build of the Secondlife can use the 32-bit vivox binary. Default on.
  • fmod: Enable the fmod sound support, default off.
  • llwebkit: Enable the qt-webkit support. Disabling this may reduce some search functions within the Secondlife client. Default on.
  • dbus: Enable or disable the dbus.

Other secondlife programs

There are other secondlife related programs in this overlay.

  • Firestorm This is a homebrewn viewer which adds new functionality to the viewer with the intent of easing the users interaction with the environment. Popular with powerusers and l33t users. http://www.firestormviewer.org/ "emerge -av firestorm-hg"

  • Imprudence Metaverse (SL) viewer with an emphasis on usability and bold changes. http://imprudenceviewer.org/

Non-3D GUI clients, for when you just need to chat and other things that don't need a full 3D GUI view.


LL CMS Branches

There is several mercurial branches from Linden Labs and third party viewers. They are:

  • secondlife-hg is a live hg pull from a viewer development or release canidate repro. This repro is being maintained by LL and the open source community.
  • firestorm-hg is a live hg pull from the phoenix viewer project of Linden Labs viewer 2/3.x based code.
  • All branches do a live pull from the hg repository, to update, just re-emerge them.
  • All can be installed at the same time.
  • To run the client, just use the menu or from the command line, secondlife or phoenix-hg or firestorm-hg for the client you wish to run.

3Dconnexion's SpaceNavigator

3Dconnexion's SpaceNavigator users may need to do the following:

  1. Uninstall any 3Dconnexion company supplied linux drivers as they conflict with the one built into the kernel. The SpaceNavigator shows up as a HID device that Secondlife can use.

  2. Create some udev rules if they are not supplied with the distro. Currently gentoo does not.

    cat << EOF > /etc/udev/rules.d/91-spacenavigator.rules
    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c603", SYMLINK+="input/spacemouse", GROUP="plugdev", MODE="664"
    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c623", SYMLINK+="input/spacetraveler", GROUP="plugdev", MODE="664"
    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c626", SYMLINK+="input/spacenavigator", GROUP="plugdev", MODE="664"
    EOF
  3. Create some hal policy rules to prevent the SpaceNavigator from being used as a mouse with hotpluggin on x-org. Only needed if you find the joystick controlling the mouse.

    cat << EOF > /etc/hal/fdi/policy/3Dconnexion_SpaceNavigator.fdi
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <deviceinfo version="0.2">
      <device>
        <match key="info.product" contains="3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator">
          <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string"></merge>
        </match>
      </device>
    </deviceinfo>
    EOF
