Hi Everybody,

I'm new to Gentoo, though not Linux/OS X/Unix in general. I followed the directions on http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/gentoo-alt/prefix/bootstrap-macos.xml to boostrap my Gentoo install. My goal was to get a new version of gcc installed so that I could try compiling GSL on this machine (G4 PowerBook).

However, when I try to emerge gsl, I get
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "gsl".

It appears to be available on packages.gentoo.org, though it's masked as testing (I don't mind that). Here's my make.conf:
Code:

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~ppc-macos ppc-macos"
SYNC="svn+http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/proj/alt/trunk/prefix-overlay"

CFLAGS="-mcpu=7450 -O2 -pipe -maltivec -mabi=altivec -fno-strict-aliasing"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"


I've tried to run emerge --sync to fix it, but it still isn't available. I've also noticed that other packages available for the ppc-macos architecture aren't in my Portage tree. I think the problem is that SYNC= line, but I'm not sure where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks![/code][/quote]

Answering my own question for completeness' sake.

The new "prefix Portage" installation method maintains a separate "overlay" Portage tree. It is meant to replace the old arch installation method, where packages were selected based primarily on the arch keyword.

I agree with the first thing. It's using an overlay, so not everything from the main tree is available (yet), but you can add it yourself.
