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 the 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:

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. This is done in /etc/portage/package.keywords/local and we automate this for you so you don't have to know about ~x86 or ~amd64.
