speedie's Gentoo overlay
Since I maintain forks of software as well as some of my own, I decided to create a Gentoo overlay so that you can install my dotfiles and software using
As of now, this requires
layman. This can be installed using
portage as well.
What is an overlay?
An overlay is pretty much a third party Gentoo repository with other ebuilds not normally found in the regular Gentoo repositories. Often it's the only way to install software other than compiling from source yourself.
What packages does this overlay offer?
See 'Ebuild list' further down this page.
What distributions can I install this on?
Gentoo is the only distro I've tested this on. It might work on other Gentoo based distributions that use the
portage package manager but it will NOT work on Arch, Debian or other distros that are not Gentoo based.
How can I add this overlay?
Using either eselect-repository or layman. Layman is no longer maintained so I do not recommend you use it.
layman -o https://speedie.site/overlay.xml -f -a speedie-overlay
eselect repository --add speedie-overlay git https://git.speedie.site/speedie-overlay
To sync with layman:
layman -s speedie-overlay
To sync with eselect-repository:
emaint -r speedie-overlay sync
See the repository for a full list.
Where are the ebuilds hosted?
The ebuilds are all hosted on my cgit instance.
