Description Sean A.O. Harney 2013-02-12 13:23:00 UTC
Just a small problem with the Overlays userguide in this section: Code Listing 2.2: Telling Portage about layman-fetched repositories (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 and later) # echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/make.conf So the fix in the documentation should be ">> /etc/portage/make.conf" as per this recent Gentoo news: 2012-09-09-make.conf-and-make.profile-move Title make.conf and make.profile move Author Jorge Manuel B. S. Vicetto <email@example.com> Posted 2012-09-09 Revision 1 Starting next week, new stages will have make.conf and make.profile moved from /etc to /etc/portage. This is a change in the installation defaults, that will only affect new installs so it doesn't affect current systems. Current users don't need to do anything. But if you want to follow the preferred location, you may want to take the chance to move the files in your system(s) to the new location. Thanks for my favorite Linux distro. Keep up the good work, guys! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. View the documentation 2. Notice the old make.conf location Actual Results: Load the documentation page in a web browser. Expected Results: I saw the slightly outdated documentation, which might confuse a Gentoo newbie. Use the current, new path for make.conf, rather than the old one!
