hello,

I have 2 questions about haskell development using gentoo.

1/ I saw that the atom editor exists in gentoo repos, but is masked. Is it possible to install it? What are the risks?

2/ there are other editors that support haskell : intelliJ idea, sublime text, komodo editor... but none exists in the gentoo repos.
I am a newbie, so please tell me if it is possible to install these editors, from the sources. Still, are there some risks of breaking the system (file conflicts?)

thank you

lowley

It's possible with emerge -a atom and emerge tell you what you have to do. The risk is to have something trouble with compilation (caused by some bug).

huh, seems odd, does this replace emerge?
what version is the best, the old one, or the newer one?

An overlay not replace portage tree but expand this with package not official supported by gentoo.

No idea you should try

layman is my friend!

I managed to install sublime text.

but I still have this question : is it possible to install some apps from a script (.sh file like vmware workstation for example) or from the sources, grabbed in github for example?
is it often done in gentoo installations?
is there a risk of corruption of the OS?

thank you

Yes is possible, but the better way is create an ebuild (or find one on https://gpo.zugaina.org/). For binary package (like wmware) usually you can specify a folder how install and if you use /opt there's no problem.

Is possible if you don't know what to do. For example if compile a package without specify prefix with risk of overwriting something.
