I've injected x11-drm-99999999 from the x11 overlay into my local overlay and inserted DRM_LIVE_BRANCH="r6xx-r7xx-support" to make.conf but when I emerge it, that entry is seemed to be ignored.
why?

because there's no support for it in the ebuild ? :(

you mean, e.g. the wiki, right ?

well that's outdated in that regard

I couldn't find any reference in the ebuild but if you could point to it and get it to work it would be nice,

since I'd also would like to use that branch ...

I saw it in another places.
here is the lowdown on how to make it work:

  1. get the ebuild from the x11 overlay
  2. inject it into your overlay but don't digest it yet.
  3. edit the ebuild has followed, comment out this line:
    Code:
    EGIT_PROJECT="libdrm"

  4. add these 2 lines after that line:
    Code:
    EGIT_BRANCH="r6xx-r7xx-support"                           
    EGIT_TREE="r6xx-r7xx-support"

  5. digest it and emerge.

enjoy
