Hi Folks,

I am trying to emerge libflaim from http://gpo.zugaina.org/dev-db/libflaim/Comments#ptabs and get the error:

I was looking for a solution but cannot find anything for libflaim specifically, I tried emerge --sync with no sucess! I am running out of ideas, please point me into the right direction.
My System is a g4 cube powerpc with more then 500mb of ram and a 80gig hdd.

thanks for the help!!

You are missing one or more files (in this case, a patch) that need to go with the overlay. You should check out the entire overlay (perhaps with layman) instead of pulling individual ebuilds, to avoid this kind of issue.
