The overlay currently provides various versions of jack-audio-connection-kit.

We have upstream stable 0.116.x from portage with the addition of firewire support, snapshots of the upcoming jack2 as well as live SVN ebuilds for both the ongoing jack1 and upcoming jack2.

Given you are running a Gentoo stable x86 system (x86, not ~x86), you can select the version you want by explicitly unmasking a certain version. If you are running amd64, just replace x86 with amd64 accordingly.

  • jack 0.116.2
echo "media-sound/jack-audio-connection-kit ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  • jack2 pre-release snapshots
echo "media-sound/jack-audio-connection-kit" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
echo "media-sound/jack-audio-connection-kit ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  • live svn jack1
echo "=media-sound/jack-audio-connection-kit-1.9999 **" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  • live svn jack2
echo "=media-sound/jack-audio-connection-kit-2.9999 **" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
