HELP! I need collaborators. (MUST READ, PLEASE)
It's sad for me to say that I had to leave Gentoo (at least, for some undeterminate time). Let me explain:
I got a new laptop, a Dell G3 15 3500. Since it has some new hardware, tried and installed Calculate (as well some other Live USBs) and Kubuntu is the only distro that recognizes ALL the hardware, including sound (with no issues) and the Prime, as well as I found it's a good git for a bit gaming.
I'm not planning to leave my overlay, but I won't maintain it for now. So that's why I need collaborators.
You can add PRs or write me in order to add you as a collaborator. If you have some idea to share, it'll be welcome. Also, you can submit an issue and/or write me an email.
Thank you, and sorry for the inconveniences.

Jorgicio Custom Overlay
Made with love by Jorge Pizarro Callejas, a.k.a. Jorgicio.
Branch renaming (Information for users, MUST READ)
Since I renamed the default branch from
main, you may experiment syncing issues. In order to fix that, just remove this repo and add it again using the method of your choice. See more information below.
Branch renaming (Information for collaborators, MUST READ)
The default branch is now
main instead of
master, so if you want to send your PRs, you should do the following if not done before:
git checkout master git branch -m master main git fetch git branch --unset-upstream git branch -u origin/main
And that's it.
First, install Layman from the official Portage tree. Must use the use-flag USE="git" at the moment of installation.
Then, in the section "overlays" in the /etc/layman/layman.cfg, add the following URL:
That's not needed anymore!!! Now this overlay is added to the official list. Check it here.
And then, run the following command:
layman -f -a jorgicio
And you're done.
If you want to refresh the overlay (and all another overlays), just type:
That's all, folks!
Eselect-repository is a new Eselect module intended to manage repositories. It superseed the need for Layman to list, configure, and handle synchronizations of alternate repositories (except some ones like mercurial, bazaar, and g-sorcery). It can handle the repos list in /etc/portage/repos.conf
First, install the
eselect-repository package from Portage:
Then, enable the repo:
eselect repository enable jorgicio
After that, use
emaint (already included in Portage) to sync the repo and its files:
emaint sync -r jorgicio
Now you're ready to use this repo. More information about this method, you can find it in the link above.
Note for all people who send pull requests (MUST READ)
All pull requests are welcomed to this repo, but if you do it, please use the Gentoo Git Commit Message Format. Thank you!
Note for all people who doesn't own a Github accound (MUST READ)
If you don't have a Github account, you can email me but ONLY with the tag [Gentoo Overlay] (as you can see it, with brackets and respecting capital letters). Any mail sent without that, can't be read, because is too annoying searching emails when one has a lot of them. With that tag, I can filter it easily, so I can read those emails.
Thanks in advance.
Problem with media-tv/xawtv ? See here
If you have any issue related with mmx at compilation time, you should add this to your
For some strange reason, despite being added in the package.use.mask file, it's still active, so you should disable it manually in the meantime.
