Chymeric Gentoo Overlay

An overlay for Gentoo, with various packages used and/or maintained by TheChymera. A number of the ebuilds available from this overlay are regularly copied from external sources (see respective commit mesages), and thus have a different maintainer.

If you are looking for the neuroscience software packages maintained by TheChymera, and are not interested in the absolutely newest versions, use the Gentoo Science overlay instead.


As per the current Portage specifications, overlays should be managed via /etc/portage/repos.conf/. To enable this overlay make sure you are using a recent Portage version (at least 2.2.14), and download our .conf file to the apropriate system directory (root access will likely be required):

mkdir /etc/portage/repos.conf
wget -O /etc/portage/repos.conf/chymeric

Afterwards, simply run emerge --sync, and Portage should seamlessly make all our ebuilds available. Some of our packages are available as live (*-9999) ebuilds, and if you wish to use this feature (only advisable if you are well-informed on the day-to-day development of the specific package) these versions can be manually unmasked on a case-by-case basis under /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords.
