Linuxmonk Overlay

Build Status

This is a personal Gentoo Portage Overlay. It mostly contains ebuilds of applications and libraries that I am/was interested to try on one of my Gentoo boxes or that solve a particular issue with an upstream ebuild.

Feel free to use any ebuild for your own purpose, however I might not be able to help you with any problems, as I'm not regularly using most of the packaged applications. Still every ebuild published here is in a fully functional condition at the time of upload.

Installing the overlay

In order to manage the overlay, the package app-portage/layman must be installed into your environment:

emerge -av app-portage/layman

If the installation of layman was successfully completed, enable custom overlays by uncommenting the following line in /etc/layman/layman.cfg:

overlay_defs : /etc/layman/overlays

Add this overlay by fetching its remote list as showed below:

wget -O /etc/layman/overlays/linuxmonk-overlay.xml https://raw.github.com/ganto/linuxmonk-overlay/master/overlay.xml

At this point you can execute:

layman -a linuxmonk-overlay

Finally make sure that emerge can find the ebuilds of the custom overlay:

echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/portage/make.conf

Updating the overlay

Keep the overlay up to date with:

layman -s linuxmonk-overlay

Removing the overlay

The process of removing this overlay from your Gentoo environment is quite straightforward:

layman -d linuxmonk-overlay
rm /etc/layman/overlays/linuxmonk-overlay.xml
You can’t perform that action at this time.
