Hi,

I'm quite new to gentoo (2 weeks now ;)), but I would like to use portage-xgl overlay... and problems started to show up earlier than I expected ;).

I have up-to-date system, and installed layman

emerge layman

this went smooth... but now I can't install portage-xgl overlay. Layman says:

If all you need is the xgl overlay, I'd recommend you use the manual svn co method. I found it to be much simpler than using layman.

No, I would like to play around with layman so that's not a solution for me. I don't know python so didn't try to read what this messages mean... or maybe I'll have to learn it if someone won't help me ;).

Try adding the -k option to layman; see this ``bug".
Just ran into it myself.

Yes, thank you for tip, it works for me.
I use:

layman -kL
to list available overlays

and:

layman -ka portage-xgl
to install "coffee" overlay.

Anyway, I don't feel that this behavior of layman is right...

Another solution is to modify /etc/layman/layman.cfg:
Code:
nocheck  : no

change to:
Code:
nocheck  : yes


This way, layman -S or -L works again as usual.
