Dear all,

I have compiz 0.8 on my gentoo, installed from the official masked portage ebuild.
Yesterday I installed cairo-dock using layman -a desktop-effects.
Now, when I update portage it tries to install compiz 0.9 from desktop-effects overlay, and it fails (for some reason that I don't want to investigate).

How can I force emerge to use compiz-fusion from the official portage tree instead of the overlay?

Thank you very much for your help.
Cheers.

While apparently somewhat lacking in documentation, it can be done using repos.conf to give the main tree a higher priority than the overlay.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads, considering "Overlays priority [solved]".
