Layman is an "overlay" external repository management tool.
  
GNOME 3.14 is now available in Funtoo, masked for testing. Please help us test it. If you find bugs, or want more detailed information on what is included, please see [https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-1637 FL-1637].
+
=== Installation ===
 +
<console>###i## emerge layman</console>
 +
[[make.conf]] must source laymans overlays for emerge to pull in packages from external sourcesThis line needs to be below everything else in make.conf.
 +
<console>###i## echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/portage/make.conf</console>
  
== Preparing ==
+
=== Using Layman ===
 +
Fetch, and display a list of overlays:
 +
<console>###i## layman -L</console>
  
=== sync ===
+
Add an overlay to your system:
 +
<console>###i## layman -a <overlay name></console>
  
First, sync the tree if you haven't recently as you need access to a file in the tree:
+
Delete an overlay from your system:
 +
<console>###i## layman -d <overlay name></console>
  
<console>
+
==== Masking Overlay Packages ====
###i## emerge --sync
+
Overlays have the power to override distro packages.  To avoid conflicts, mask everything in the overlay, and unmask the packages that are necessary to your system.
</console>
+
  
=== unmask ===
+
{{file|name=/etc/portage/package.mask|lang=|desc=mask all packages in an overlay|body=
 +
*/*::overlay-name
 +
}}
  
Now, reverse the GNOME 3.14 mask file:
+
{{file|name=/etc/portage/package.unmask|lang=|desc=unmask packages to be used|body=
 
+
cat-egory/pack-age1
==== package.mask (directory) ====
+
cat-egory/pack-age2
 
+
}}
<console>
+
###i## cd /etc/portage/package.unmask
+
###i## ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome .
+
</console>
+
 
+
==== package.mask (file) ====
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## cat /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
+
</console>
+
 
+
=== USE flags ===
+
 
+
Then to simplify matters, enable the gnome mix-in:
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## eselect profile list

Layman is an "overlay" external repository management tool.

Installation

# emerge layman

make.conf must source laymans overlays for emerge to pull in packages from external sources. This line needs to be below everything else in make.conf.

# echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/portage/make.conf

Using Layman

Fetch, and display a list of overlays:

# layman -L

Add an overlay to your system:

# layman -a <overlay name>

Delete an overlay from your system:

# layman -d <overlay name>

Masking Overlay Packages

Overlays have the power to override distro packages. To avoid conflicts, mask everything in the overlay, and unmask the packages that are necessary to your system.

/etc/portage/package.mask - mask all packages in an overlay
*/*::overlay-name
/etc/portage/package.unmask - unmask packages to be used
cat-egory/pack-age1
cat-egory/pack-age2

Sync

Sync a specific overlays ebuilds:

# layman -s <overlay name>

Sync all overlays:

# layman -S

Sync all overlays via eix:

# eix-sync

Troubleshooting

Problem: Warning: an installed db file was not found at: ['/var/lib/layman/cache***.xml']

Solution:

# layman -L
