    uzbl – a terminal for the web – in gentoo :)

    I’ve been using firefox for too long. Its excellent vimperator extension has prevented me from switching to anything else, but it is beginning to show its age. Slow loading times, occasional crashes, horrible JS performance… Meet uzbl. Wordplay for usable. Its developers describe it as web interface tools which adhere to the unix philosophy. I […]

    Qt 4.6.0 rc1 – in portage – binary incompatibility warning!

    So… qt-*-4.6.0_rc1 is now in the portage tree, masked (since its not a final release) and you can begin testing your shiny Qt applications with it. But there’s a catch. 4.6.0_rc1 is not binary compatible with 4.6.0_beta1. [1] This means that if you’re upgrading from 4.6.0_beta1 you have to rebuild every single app depending on […]

    kde 4.3 is here :) quick gentoo (upgrade) guide

    KDE 4.3 has arrived 😀 Lots of behind-the-scenes fixes, a new pretty (debatable) default plasma theme and various new stuff across the board make kde 4.3 an exciting release! Gentoo ebuilds were available the moment tarballs were released, thanks to the hard work of our Gentoo KDE team 😉 However, since 4.3 brings some new […]

    Overlays and >=portage-2.2_rc29 – what to do when overlay stuff breaks only for you

    Recent versions of portage have brought some confusion with overlays and overriding eclasses. Due to QA issues, zmedico has decided to disable automatic eclass overrides from overlays. This means that if, for example, you’re using the “kde-testing” overlay, you’ll have to manually tell portage to use any updated eclasses available in the overlay. If you […]

    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 […]
