From ProAudioOverlay

Jump to: navigation, search

For general information about overlays and using 3rd party ebuilds please refer to (webcached)



The easiest way to get and update the overlay is to use layman.

  • install layman
emerge -av layman
  • install subversion

As the layman ebuild warns you, you will not be able to add many overlays without dev-util/subversion. The pro-audio overlay is one of them. So if you haven't done so yet you should now:

emerge -av subversion
  • fetch the overlay list and add the pro-audio overlay
layman -fa pro-audio
  • include in make.conf

for layman 1.1:

echo "source /usr/portage/local/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/make.conf

for layman 1.2:

echo "source /usr/local/portage/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/make.conf

for layman 1.3:

echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/make.conf

To update the overlay use

layman -s pro-audio

If you encounter problems during update, first delete the old overlay

layman -d pro-audio && layman -a  pro-audio


Paludis is the Other Portage Mangler

  • paste it in /etc/paludis/repositories/proaudio.conf
location = ${ROOT}/usr/portage/local/proaudio
master_repository = gentoo
sync = svn://
format = ebuild
names_cache = /var/empty
  • and make the overlay repertory
mkdir -p /usr/portage/local/proaudio
  • don't forget to sync
paludis --sync

SVN directly

  • to checkout the overlay
svn co svn://
  • update
cd /path/to/proaudio
svn up


You can also download the overlay as an autogenerated tarball
