pull the latest ebuilds from the gnome repo in layman

Code:

layman -a gnome


then unmask all the packages you need, I like autounmask (in portage)

Code:

autounmask gnome-base/gnome-2.24.0


then
Code:

emerge =gnome-base/gnome-2.24.0

strange...the overlay gnome shows up in my layman -L

Code:

slacktop ~ # layman -L | grep gnome
* gnome                     [Git       ] (source: git://git.overlays.gentoo....)
slacktop ~ #


maybe you need to upgrade your layman? or make sure it is built with GIT support?

also verify that your /etc/layman/layman.cfg

contains this URL

figo,

Do a "layman -L" first, that will pull down the overlay list.

it is known that autounmask does not work very well.
i think you should probably read in the docs about masked packages...

i hope you realize that since gnome-2.24.0 is from an overlay and is masked, it means that it`s unstable and almost everyday the gnome herd (we luv you :-)) does a great amount of work, thus changes happen...

i would recommend you to wait a bit longer to have gnome-2.24.0 merged to the portage tree :-)

just a thought

The problem is that autounmask does not see your portage overlay.

Yours:
Code:

localhost figo # autounmask gnome-base/gnome-2.24.0

 autounmask version 0.21 (using PortageXS-0.02.07 and portage-2.1.4.4)

Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at /usr/bin/autounmask line 304.
Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at /usr/bin/autounmask line 307.
Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at /usr/bin/autounmask line 304.
Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at /usr/bin/autounmask line 307.
 * Using repository: /usr/portage



Mine:

Code:

slacker ~ # autounmask =gnome-base/gnome-2.24.0

 autounmask version 0.21 (using PortageXS-0.02.07 and portage-2.2_rc1)

 * Using repositories:
     /usr/portage
     /usr/portage/local/layman/sunrise
     /usr/portage/local/layman/kdesvn-portage
     /usr/portage/local/layman/sabayon
     /usr/portage/local/layman/gnome
     /usr/local/portage


I am not sure why you are having issues with autounmask (which i have only ever had problems using it with sets)

take a look at this link

http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Overlays

to verify that layman is set up correctly.


you can also unmask the packages manually.

Code:

emerge =gnome-base/gnome-2.24.0 -pv

then echo the packages that show up as masked into
Code:

/etc/portage/package.keywords

or
Code:

/etc/portage/package.unmask

depending on how they are masked.
