I hope you don't take this amiss Steel but it took me forever to work out how to do this propperly, probably cos the last thing I looked at was the portage manual. For anyone else like me, here's the quick and easy way to install Love-Sources.

Code:

edit /etc/make.conf

and uncomment the line

#PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage

do

mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources

search the gentoo forums for "love-sources" and follow the link to the latest patch. This can also be found on the [url=http://www.love-sources.org/news.php]offical love-sources web site[/url]. Download the *.ebuild to the love-sources directory you made above and do

cd /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources
ebuild [name of ebuild] digest
emerge [name of ebuild]


the last two lines can be combined if thats what you want as
Code:
emerge --digest [name of ebuild]


obviously there are lots of shortcuts in that, mostly with the use of the tab key! I got this info jointly from http://breakmygentoo.net/archives/cat_help.html
and http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/portage-user.xml

Hope this helps.[/code][/code]

Good tutorial. It's straight and to the point. I'm just glad to see another -love user.

When I try this I get:

emerge /usr/local/portage/love-sources/love-sources-2.6.1-r2.ebuild
Calculating dependencies \!!! aux_get(): ebuild for 'portage/love-sources-2.6.1-r2' does not exist at:
!!! /usr/portage/portage/love-sources/love-sources-2.6.1-r2.ebuild
emerge: create(): aux_get() error on portage/love-sources-2.6.1-r2; aborting...


Not sure what I'm doing wrong...?

Any suggestions?

Double-check that path. It looks like the sys-kernel directory isn't there. The path looks like it should be /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources.

Humm, I downloaded that love ebuild from 2 different mirrors. They both give me this:
Code:

kiiwi /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources # ebuild love-sources-2.6.3_rc1-r1.ebuild digest
>>> Downloading http://trumpetti.atm.tut.fi/gentoo/distfiles/2.6.3_rc1-love1.patch.bz2
--20:54:19--  http://%7buri%7d/
           => `index.html'
Resolving %7buri%7d... failed: Host not found.
>>> Downloading http://buckoven.silent-server.de/lovepatch/2.6.3_rc1-love1.patch.bz2
--20:54:20--  http://%7buri%7d/
           => `index.html'
Resolving %7buri%7d... failed: Host not found.
!!! Couldn't download 2.6.3_rc1-love1.patch.bz2. Aborting.
kiiwi /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources #

Any ideas about the reason?

Love 2.6.2 started fine. It started downloading sources I think, but then I had to Ctrl-c (other reason), and now ebuild [name] digest doesn't load the packages again, and so that emerge fails.

If the ebuild is in /usr/local/portage, just do
Code:
emerge love-sources
There's no need for the full path name.

Great guide, just make sure to put the source files (2.*-love.patch.bz2) into /usr/portage/distfiles then do the ebuild :P

The
Code:
ebuild [love-sources] digest


line should download the patch for you, and place it in the distfiles dir.

either that or you have to be in the /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources/ directory. :)

I think there is something more fundamentally screwed up here for you,

looks nasty and bad. Check your make.conf to make sure your mirrors are correct. Why did wget try to connect to %7buri%7d instead of buckoven.silent-server.de ?

I had to rm /usr/portage/distfile/* and then try again for a similar error.

This is pretty hot. Nice tutorial, and with Steel300's approval. Now all we need it for Lovechild to voice his opinions.

FWIW, you can simply do
Code:
mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/love-sources

Well i *did* have problems getting it working

christsong84, u got it to a T........you need to grab all the files and put them in the sys-kernel/love-sources directory, then change there and do the ebuild

Soon as I did that, it worked :D

Nice one, now I'm off to migrate me pc to a 2.6 Love sources kernel...wish me luck :lol:

Calculating dependencies
!!! Problem in sys-kernel/love-sources-2.6.5-r5 dependencies.
!!! "Specific key requires an operator (sys-kernel/love-sources-2.6.5-r5) (try adding an '=')"

I know it is not with your tips but thought maybe you could help.

no..

that directory is where you put any custom ebuilds that you dont want to have deleted during the next
Code:
emerge sync

Hi,

Just finished emerging linux-2.6.6-rc3-love3, now i have
linux-2.6.6-rc3-love3 in /usr/src. how do i use it?
i dont find any bzImage\System.map on /usr/src/linux-2.6.6-rc3-love3.
Do I have to change the link /usr/src/linux to
/usr/src/linux -> linux-2.6.6-rc3-love3 and compile the new one?

thanks.

Um, you need to configure the kernel and then build it. I won't go into it here but it is the same as the install instructions.

Are you sure you need to use love-sources? It is a specialised kernel that will only make sense to use if you need the extra patches in it. It may be an idea to use a stock kernel until you are used to configuring and compiling and you have a specific need to use something 'extra'.

And yes, once you have configured the kernel, you will need to change the link to the new kernel. And don't forget to mount /boot when you copy over your bzImage! (Something that has caught us all out in the past)
