I just made a plain funtoo install and I can't get updated packages.
reports nothing to update.
seems to update properly instead. But can't get (some) updated ebuilds. I can see here a news by Oleg on February 5, 2017 asserting "Due to several security vulnerabilities[1,2,3], xorg-server masks now removed, which will bring xorg-server-1.19.1 on current and 1.18.4 on stable builds." but I don't have those ebuilds in /var/git/meta-repo/kits/xorg-kit/x11-base/xorg-server . And by adding the gentoo, x11 and kde overlays I get a conflicts storm...
How do I move on from 1.17.4-r1? And more important: how do I check if my meta-repo is screwed?
Secondly, after Layman added /etc/portage/repos.conf/layman.conf I get
!!! Repository name or alias 'gentoo', defined for repository 'core-kit', overrides existing alias or repository.
every time I use emerge. Before emerging layman I manually cloned gentoo's portage and added a local overlay myself, ending up having the same error message; so I gave up and went layman's way... having the same result. Why an overlay (named "gentoo") "overrides existing alias or repository"? I can't grep any gentoo in repos.conf; they all have core-kit master!
