DESCRIPTION:

Emerge Cookbook.

This cookbook holds 2 definitions, one called enable_package and one called update_file. Between these two definitions it enables you to 'unmask' a package in Chef and then install an 'masked' version of said package.

USAGE:

For example if you want to install Libxml 2.7.6 on AppCloud you would use the following as a recipe.

enable_package "dev-libs/libxml2" do
  version "2.7.6"
end

package "dev-libs/libxml2" do
  version "2.7.6"
  action :install
end

ALTERNATIVE USAGE:

This example shows you how to modify the 'use_flags' that are used during package compilation too.

enable_package "dev-lang/ruby" do
  version "1.8.7_p299"
end

package_use "dev-lang/ruby" do
  flags "threads"
end

package "dev-lang/ruby" do
  version "1.8.7_p299"
  action :install
end

LEGEND:

Gentoo uses the names 'mask' and 'unmask' terminology between stable and unstable. Typically this is done in /etc/make.conf with ACCEPT_KEYWORDS declaration for '~amd64' and '~x86'. However it can also be added to /etc/portage/package.keywords/local to 'unmask' packages individually.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
