I thought we should create a thread, since we have some very useful overlays available via git :)

The first one:
Zen-Overlay:
- Contains any driver (kernel-related), or zen patch required (for example, it contains new alsa ebuilds, fixed nvidia over certain zen, the zen releases themselves, zen-hotfix, etc)
obtain by:
Code:
# layman -a zen-overlay
or
# playman -a zen-overlay; paludis -s x-zen-overlay


The second one:
THE overlay:
- Contains any non-kernel or non-zen related packages (example, up to date qt-copy 3 ebuilds and qt-copy 4 split up ebuilds, as well as any live/mercurial ebuilds such as git-9999, lxde/now in lxde-overlay, plop/paludis genlop, vlc patched for root, realplayer with gcc3 use flag, mutt)
Not available in layman yet, should be within 24 hours
Code:
git://zen-sources.org/zen/THE.git


Paludis the-overlay.conf
Code:
location = /var/paludis/repositories/the-overlay
format = ebuild
sync = git://zen-sources.org/zen/THE.git

master_repository = gentoo
names_cache = ${location}/.cache/names
write_cache = /var/cache/paludis/metadata

----

Both of these overlays are expected to work at any given time. If any errors are encountered please report them :)

I've installed mutt with sidebar from zen-overlay (before the split). It hangs when trying to read certain mailboxes, that's what it says in the status bar:
Code:
Reading /home/erik/.maildir/default... 20/57 (35%)

That happens both when I access the mailbox with mutt -f or via the sidebar. Without the sidebar patch, there's no problem.

Is this mutt or muttng? If it's mutt-1.5.8, i would temporarily mask it and try the dated version in portage to see if the problem exists there (i think portage has 1.5.6.

if it's muttng the only option is to wait for upstream to fix it and report it if it hasnt been yet :-p

Either way, let me know if you get the problems with 1.5.6, if not i'll exhaust some resources into finding the problem.

It's mutt 1.5.18, portage's older version 1.5.16 doesn't work either. I've tried about ask about that problem on mutt's mailing list but there seems to be some problem with my subscription.

When I try your commands, I get nowhere; to whit:
Code:
pappy-lap ~ # layman -a zen-overlay
* Overlay "zen-overlay" does not exist!
and
Code:
pappy-lap ~ # git://zen-sources.org/zen/THE.git
bash: git://zen-sources.org/zen/THE.git: No such file or directory


So, what's up with that? I'd like to install zen-source ebuilds so I can experiment with them, but I get nothing! What am I not doing right?

Blessed be!
Pappy

For zen-overlay try:

Code:
# layman -f
# layman -a zen-overlay


For THE overlay try:

Code:
# git clone git://zen-sources.org/zen/THE.git

Hi,

Could you update the x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers ebuild in the zen-overlay to 177.80?

The one in the official tree is requiring linux sources and I am currently using zen-sources directly from Git.

hi,

i tried to install zen-sources-2.6.27-r[23] via paludis and noticed that the zen patches were not applied to vanilla kernel. at closer look i found out that neither src_unpack nor pkg_postinst inherited zen functions are being called.

placing EXPORT_FUNCTIONS after inherit statement in zen.eclass solved the problem. i don't know if this is paludis related but i've checked few eclasses in portage tree and noticed that EXPORT_FUNCTIONS always comes after inherit.

i wonder if anybody else experienced this problem?

i was just about to report an error in the kdialog-3.5.10 ebuild from THE overlay. It keeps complaining
"CANNOT FIND $EPATCH SRC". (Deleted the ebuild, using portage works) Will try again when the overlay is back up ( i hope this happens soon, seems to be going around... gentoo-wiki, zen, at least 2 other servers i used).

What would you need to setup a new THE overlay (includes git repository for zen-sources) ? I miss the overlay & zen-sources too.

I may provide a temporary vhost on this server (I have a "free" dedicate server in the hosting company i'm working for) but it is not very powerful and i don't know if i have the right to host that kind of project (conditions of are kind of obscures, it's mostly a problem of bandwith but i can ask).

So let me know if you're interested :)

P.S. : I'm not promising anything ;)
