Gentoo Science Overlay
This is a Gentoo Linux ebuild repository which provides numerous scientific software packages.
As per the current Portage specifications, ebuild repositories (a.k.a. overlays) should be managed via file collections under
To enable our overlay without the need for additional software, simply run (as root):
wget https://gitweb.gentoo.org/proj/sci.git/plain/metadata/science.conf -O /etc/portage/repos.conf/science
To start using the overlay you now only need to get the ebuilds, via
BLAS and LAPACK
The BLAS and LAPACK switching framework in ::gentoo has been implemented. The Science overlay will no longer carry blas and lapack ebuilds.
To uninstall the overlay run (again, as root):
rm /etc/portage/repos.conf/science rm /var/db/repos/science -rf
Please fork! We will merge! See our contributing guide.
