IP Space Migration Continues

All Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! container.host.funtoo.org DNS will be updated after the move.

New ARM Stages

New ARM Stages, built with a new toolchain, are now hitting mirrors. Existing ARM users should re-install using these stages (dated Aug 3, 2015 or later,) rather than upgrade using emerge.

There are multiple ways to install Liferay on your Funtoo System. Note: I will use tomcat as server, there might be slight differences if you want to use another server like glassfish.

1) Tomcat + Liferay - Manual setup.

2) Tomcat + Liferay - Bundle.

3) Tomcat + Liferay - Ebuild.


I have chosen to use the third method.

Tomcat + Liferay - Ebuild:

First we need to add an overlay (https://github.com/cvut/gentoo-overlay) to our current system, since the ebuild is not part of the gentoo,funtoo tree. You need to have layman correctly installed. Then add the following git overlay using layman:

layman -o https://raw.github.com/cvut/gentoo-overlay/master/overlay.xml -f -a cvut

Note

You need to have Java (JDK)

Now install: 'emerge liferay-portal'

For liferay to work you need a SQL Database.

a) Postgresql

b) DB2 -IBM


Liferay supports many different DBs but I would chose a) or b): Install your DB and create a new user (=liferay-user) and a new Database (=lportal). Start your DBs Deamon and make sure your firewall (iptables) allows loopback access for localhost.

Then configure /etc/liferay-6.2/portal-context.xml and /opt/liferay-portal-6.x/... to use the DB correctly. (Details comming soon, this howTO is not ready yet)
