Gentoo Portage Overlay

How to use these scripts?

First of all, your operating sytem must be Gentoo Linux. Next, you should have a portage overlay. If you don't have one, create it like this (as root):

mkdir -p /usr/local/portage
echo 'PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"' >> /etc/make.conf

Now take the ebuild which you want to install, and save it to the same path as it is located on my server (except the /usr/local of course). Now hold your breath, and execute:

emerge --digest -av <name>

Whereas <name> is (as usual): .../portage/<category>/<name>/<name>-<version>.ebuild

Note: Not all of these ebuilds are actually in a working state ;-)
