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:
Title make.conf and make.profile move
Author Jorge Manuel B. S. Vicetto <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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 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!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. View the documentation
2. Notice the old make.conf location
Load the documentation page in a web browser.
I saw the slightly outdated documentation, which might confuse a Gentoo newbie.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!
Duplicate. However the paths are updated to /etc/portage/make.conf .
