Description clemenswaechter 2008-06-08 22:43:42 UTC
I've added an overlay to my system in order to get some eeePC related 
ebuilds. But the problem is that the overlay overrides some ebuilds from the
main tree which I don't want to override. Therefore, I'd like to set the priority
of the main portage tree higher than the overlay. I've searched for a solution but 
layman -p doesn't provide the functionality I am looking for and I haven't found
other solutions. Of course, I could select and manage single ebuilds by hand but
I'd prefer the solution mentioned above.
