I found a Gentoo overlay for Frostwire-4.17.1 but I don't know how to add it to layman. I'm trying to follow the command from Gentoo-Wiki for TrueCrypt and modify it:

Code:
layman -o http://yarik-overlay.googlecode.com/files/yarik-overlay.xml -f -a yarik-overlay


but I can't find the xml file. How do I add the Gentoo overlay to layman?

[Edit]

Nevermind "layman --add sunrise" wasn't it.

not at my computer atm (on my phone), but does layman -a java-experimental work?

keep in mind that there is no "gentoo overlay"... that's just o.g.o.

I ran across some documentation here on how to add the java-experimental overlay:

http://www.gentoo.ro/proj/en/java/experimental.xml

However, that link describes a manual method for adding the overlay that doesn't even use layman. Basically, you manually update the overlay with subversion, and point your make.conf to the place you downloaded the overlay.

It still seems like there would be a way to do this with layman.

That looks promising, however I'd like to set it up via layman so all I have to do to update the tree is "emerge --sync".

The Java Project Overlays page wrote:
Java-Experimental Overlay

The purpose of this experimental overlay is to serve as a sandbox for exciting new packages and untrivial version bumps of packages in main gentoo tree, which are works-in-progress and/or not quite ready for prime-time. This means that the packages here are not guaranteed to build or work. Because of this, the overlay is not available via layman and should be generally used only by Gentoo/Java developers and contributors.

I will respect the team's wishes and not provide instructions. If you are determined, read the layman documentation. It shouldn't be too difficult to figure out how to construct the file you need and get layman to use it.
