How to use this overlay
with local overlays
Local overlays should be managed via
To enable this overlay make sure you are using a recent Portage version (at least
2.2.14), and create an
/etc/portage/repos.conf/ring-overlay.conf file containing precisely:
[ring-overlay] location = /usr/local/portage/ring-overlay sync-type = git sync-uri = https://github.com/stefan-langenmaier/ring-overlay.git priority=9999
Afterwards, simply run
emerge --sync, and Portage should seamlessly make all our ebuilds available.
Invoke the following:
layman -f -a ring-overlay
Or read the instructions on the Gentoo Wiki.
After performing those steps, the following should work:
sudo emerge -av net-voip/gnome-ring
live vs stable ebuild
There are two kind of ebuilds available. The live ebuilds (with version 9999) are taken directly from the git master branch (and in case of the ring-daemon are compiled with the bundled libraries). The stable ebuilds are from fixed versions and have been tested to work together. As a bonus they try to unbundle the application as much as possible.
