README.rst README.rst: Suggest to use my distfiles mirror 6 months ago


<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> </head>


This is my private and unofficial overlay for Gentoo/Linux. There will be different ebuilds from different sources, hopefully only temporary before submitting to the main Gentoo bugtracker resp. to the main portage tree.

Setup and synchronisation

There are several possible ways of adding this overlay:

Adding the overlay manually

You can clone the repository and create /etc/portage/repos.conf/holgersson-overlay.conf with the following contents:

priority = 50
location = /path/to/local/holgersson-overlay
sync-type = git
sync-uri =

Using eselect-repository

Run eselect repository from app-eselect/eselect-repository:

$ eselect repository enable holgersson-overlay

Using layman

Run layman from app-portage/layman:

$ layman -a holgersson-overlay

and optional for global updates:

$ layman -S
$ emerge --sync

You might want to set USE="sync-plugin-portage" for layman, too.

Add the distfiles archive to GENTOO_MIRRORS

You may want to optionally add the distfiles mirror of this overlay to your GENTOO_MIRRORS configuration in /etc/portage:



If you encounter bugs, please send a mail to holgersson [ascii-symbol-64] posteo [ascii-symbol-46] de or open a bug report on the main Gentoo bugtracker (please remember to Cc me there). Bug descriptions, suggestions, patches, critics and chorus of praise are all welcome!
