Private overlay… Eyes only!

I now have my personal gentoo overlay over at github.

For those not familiar with overlays, they are something like a “repository”. They allow you to add and use ebuilds out of the official portage tree.

In my overlay, called “wirelay”, I usually add fixes from bugs.gentoo.org that I need which haven’t reached the tree yet (and maybe never will). I also keep ebuilds of the latest nvidia drivers and other stuff :)

To browse the overlay, visit http://github.com/wired/wirelay/tree/master

To add the overlay, install layman ( emerge -av layman ) then run:

layman -f -o http://github.com/wired/wirelay/raw/master/Documentation/wirelay.list -a wirelay
