How We're Keeping You At the Center of the Funtoo UniverseRead about recent developments that keep you, our users, at the forefront of our focus as Funtoo moves forward.
New OpenGL management in FuntooFuntoo is switching to an improved system for managing multiple OpenGL providers (Mesa/Xorg, AMD and NVIDIA). The update may involve blockers and file collisions.

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
You need to have Java (JDK)
Now install: 'emerge liferay-portal'
For liferay to work you need a SQL Database.
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)
