layman and kits, ebuilds not seen



Following the guide for using layman correctly with kits in funtoo, I have a /etc/portage/repos.conf folder,

# tree /etc/portage/repos.conf
├── funtoo -> /var/git/meta-repo/repos.conf
├── layman.conf
├── mylocal.conf
└── science.conf

1 directory, 3 files

and .conf files for other overlays in various places. However, running eix-sync or ego sync doesn't seem to pick up any of the ebuilds in the overlay. When eix-sync rebuilds the its database, it notes the existences of the overlay, but the ebuilds within the overlay itself never appear. The other overlays (mylocal, science, not managed by layman) that reside in /var/git/overlay are picked up without difficulty. Here is the /etc/portage/repos.conf/layman.conf:

priority = 10
masters = gentoo
location = /var/lib/layman/elementary
layman-type = git
auto-sync = No

What do I need to change here to get portage to notice these ebuilds?

No problem. I have noticed some other things in your setup that you should fix.

build: experimental

experimental is not supported anymore. I would recommend to switch to current. Manual edit is probably necessary.

Portage 2.3.11

there is already 2.3.18 released and it makes sense to have portage the latest stable version as it is the core of funtoo/gentoo.

you are using gcc-6.3.0 from your local overlay and I would recommend to switch to gcc-6.4.0 that can be found in core-kit and use that as anything else could be seen as unsupported.

mix-ins: print
mix-ins: audio
mix-ins: no-emul-linux-x86
mix-ins: gnome
mix-ins: console-extras
mix-ins: dvd
mix-ins: X

From all these mix-ins you need only no-emul-linux-x86 and gnome all the other ones come inherited from desktop or workstation ...

dev-lang/perl: 5.24.0-r2::gentoo

and other packages that come from ::gentoo repo give me information that you need to run

emerge -avuDN --newrepo @world

to migrate all packages from the old ports-2012 to the new meta-repo/kits setup.

Let me know if you need something else.

Hi palica,

my sincere apologies for wasting your time: I unmerged layman, removed its config files from /etc, emerged it again, and re-added the overlay. Now, after eix-update, eix indeed shows the correct population of ebuilds, including those contributed from overlays managed by layman. So I must have had an error in layman's setup. Anyway, sorry for the stupid questions and for wasting your time. I do appreciate your help. Best --
