I'm trying to find the most "official" version of epsxe, and I'm flummoxed to discover that the gentoo-wiki site is apparently not aware of epsxe being absent from the current tree, which makes methink that the package in question has been deprecated, migrated to an overlay, or something else.

Where can I find it with a minimum of headaches forward looking?

The package has been dropped due to gtk+:1 being deprecated. (Bug 396477)

Actually im currently looking into that stuff and the plugins as well. As I see there is no AMD64 keyword, but I happen to make epsxe, alsa/oss-plugin and mesagl-plugin work under amd64.

We should probably port:
Code:
games-emulation/epsxe *
games-emulation/psemu-cdr
games-emulation/psemu-cdriso
games-emulation/psemu-eternalspu
games-emulation/psemu-gpupetemesagl *
games-emulation/psemu-gpupetexgl2
games-emulation/psemu-padjoy
games-emulation/psemu-padxwin
games-emulation/psemu-peopssoftgpu
games-emulation/psemu-peopsspu *
games-emulation/psemu-spunull

all to sunrise-overlay unless someone has a better idea (most of them will probably be removed from tree as well, cause of gtk+:1 dep). Those 3 * are more or less done/tested.

If anyone can test other plugins on x86 or amd64 that would be great. For straight-forward testing i suggest first to extract the program archive manually in your home directory, add the plugins into the plugins-subdirectory and run the program.
On amd64 you need app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-gtklibs.

You can also find pcsx2 and pcsxr in overlays. I didn't use them yet, so I don't know how they work and how they compare to epsxe.

I created my own overlay for epsxe and plugins since there is still some confusion whether the plugins remain in tree or not and sunrise does not accept ebuilds which are already in tree.

Mainly I added amd64 keywords (which was a bit tricky for sound-plugin), did version-bumps, checked deps and so on.

All those plugins are in terrible shape for x86_64. And same goes for PS2 emulation.

If you want to run PS1 games, I suggest getting PCSX-r. Wish it were officially in the tree but it has no official releases yet. A number of overlays have the 9999 ebuild (funroll-loops being one of them).

This works well for me, the GUI is native and not terrible looking. And it is still being maintained unlike ePSXe which had its last release for Linux a long time ago.

Thats true. It's a mess to compile most of those plugins and the pre-built binaries give some QA warnings.

Anyway, my overlay is now accessible via layman (hasufell).

hasufell, your work receives my deepest appreciation.

However, today I got the following error when trying to install epsxe:

Could you suggest a way to get around this issue?

Like i said i still dont get it .
I no its here but its all a bit mixed up.

so i emerge layman
I have made a directory

usr/portage/overlay/

add this to my make.conf

PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/portage/overlay/ ${PORTDIR}"

So do i place the ebuild in this directory then emerge it ?

Im still lost sorry

gentoo2013, I did this way:

1) Installed Layman:
Code:
root # emerge --ask app-portage/layman


2) Added a line to make.cof:
Code:
root # echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/portage/make.conf


3) Added the overlay (replace <name> with sunrise, hasufell, or any other overlay name):
Code:
root # layman -a <name>


4) Update the overlays:
Code:
root # layman -S


5) Install the package you want:
Code:
root # emerge --ask <package-you-want>



First time I used overlays was very confusing. The docs aren't very clear to me. I think the problem is the wiki docs mix local overlay with normal overlay (local overlay is when you develop your own ebuilds and the normal overlay is when another people develop an ebuild out of gentoo oficial tree and make it avaible on-line to Portage, then you can install that ebuilds with Layman).

EDIT: more explanation here in the oficial overlay userguide http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/overlays/userguide.xml it is way easier to understand than the wiki
