1 Hi,
3 I am trying to create a gentoo package for some internal software. I
4 followed
5 several Howtos online and created the ebuild file for my package. But
6 somehow
7 ebuild always return me the same error over and over again:
9 $ ebuild ./component-template-0.1.0.ebuild digest
10 Invalid package name in package.provided: component-template-0.1
11 !!! aux_get(): ebuild path for 'mycat/component-template-0.1.0' not
12 specified:
13 !!! None
14 !!! aux_get(): ebuild path for 'mycat/component-template-0.1.0' not
15 specified:
16 !!! None
17 doebuild(): aux_get() error reading mycat/component-template-0.1.0;
18 aborting.
20 I did google for this error, most say that it is because of the
22 But I do have PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage" in my /etc/make.conf
23 file.
24 And I can upgrade existing Gentoo packages after modifying them. For
25 example,
26 I copied over the xmlrpc-c-0.9 to the /usr/local/portage/dev-libs/ and
27 changed
28 it to xmlrpc-c-1.03.07 and it worked liked a charm. It is just my
29 packages
30 are somehow not recognized by portage.
32 I read it somewhere that the category name "mycat" has to be an entry
33 listed in
34 /usr/portage/profiles/categories. I added "mycat" into the categories,
35 still
36 the same result. Plus, this doesn't make sense because the "emerge
37 --sync"
38 would remove it.
40 Any body has any ideas where I am doing wrong? It can't be this
41 difficult to
42 create a new package for Gentoo, can it?
44 Or do I have to use gensync to create my own portage tree for this? And
45 if
46 I have to, anyone can point me to how to do that? There are documents
47 on how
48 to use gensync, but not how to create a 3rd-party portage tree.
50 BTW, my "emerge --sync" takes more than 15 minutes to finish. Anybody
51 has the
52 same problem?
54 Thank you very much for your help.
