Layman is an "overlay" external repository management tool.
  
There are a number of ways you can support Funtoo Linux financially:
+
=== Installation ===
 +
<console>###i## emerge layman</console>
 +
[[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.
 +
<console>###i## echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/portage/make.conf</console>
  
* Monthly Recurring Donation via Credit Card
+
=== Using Layman ===
* PayPal Recurring or One-Time Donation (via PayPal Account or Credit Card)
+
Fetch, and display a list of overlays:
* Bitcoin One-Time Donation
+
<console>###i## layman -L</console>
  
The different donation options can be found below:
+
Add an overlay to your system:
 +
<console>###i## layman -a <overlay name></console>
  
=== Monthly Recurring Support via Credit Card ===
+
Delete an overlay from your system:
 +
<console>###i## layman -d <overlay name></console>
  
{{#widget:FuntooSupport}}

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
