Hello,
I am using Funtoo/GNU/Linux. Before, I could add the overlays I have installed with Layman to the Eix database with the commands
Code:
eix-update -a hawking
eix-update -a pinkbyte

Then the command
Code:
eix -sv polyglot

would give me two results, one from the Gentoo repository and an other from the Hawking one.

Now, when I do the eix-update commands, Eix parse the overlays trees, but say it is empty and nothing is add to the database. Example:
Code:
eix-update -a hawking
Reading Portage settings ..
Building database (/var/cache/eix/portage.eix) ..
[0] "gentoo" /usr/portage/ (cache: metadata-md5-or-flat)
     Reading category 155|155 (100%) Finished             
[1] "" hawking (cache: assign)
     Reading category 155|155 (100%) EMPTY!
Applying masks ..
Calculating hash tables ..
Writing database file /var/cache/eix/portage.eix ..
Database contains 15865 packages in 155 categories.

I tried with differents cache methods
Code:
eix-update
Reading Portage settings ..
Building database (/var/cache/eix/portage.eix) ..
[0] "gentoo" /usr/portage/ (cache: metadata-md5)
     Reading category 155|155 (100%) Finished             
[1] "" hawking (cache: metadata-md5)
     Reading category 155|155 (100%) EMPTY!
[2] "" pinkbyte (cache: metadata-md5)
     Reading category 155|155 (100%) EMPTY!
Applying masks ..
Calculating hash tables ..
Writing database file /var/cache/eix/portage.eix ..
Database contains 15865 packages in 155 categories.

What changes did happen to Eix and/or to my configuration? The version of Eix is 0.25.3.

Use PORTDIR_OVERLAY and source /path/to/layman/make.conf in /etc/make.conf. I've never had any trouble with eix that way. eix-update picks it up from there.

The only method who work presently is to use
Code:
eix-layman -A /var/lib/layman/make.conf add hawking pinkbyte

or put in /etc/eixrc or in ~/.eixrc
Code:

EIX_LAYMAN_OPTS="-A /var/lib/layman/make.conf add hawking pinkbyte"

When I do
Code:
eix-update
eix-layman

I get all the ebuilds from Gentoo Hawking and Pinkbyte repositorys. I mark this thread as resolved.

Just for the records:

I had the same issues here month, weeks, days and hours ago ... now I found a solution:

I just create a make.conf in /etc/portage containing one single entry:
Code:
source /var/lib/layman/make.conf

No real idea why this simple line works here and not in /etc/make.conf ...

But now an eix-sync does what it should do .. :)

Is your /etc/make.conf readable by user/group portage:portage?
Do you perhaps set PORTDIR_OVERLAY after the source command?

MY HERO! :D

We talked about this issues for hours yesterday on IRC and I tried a lot of (stupid) this to get this solved. But no one got that simple idea.

Many thanks ...

YES!
I figured it out by myself, now I find the answer after months :P ...
I had to brutally chmod a+r make.conf!!
