1 Hi people,
2
3 I have been trying to add an ebuild to my /usr/local/portage tree, but am
4 having problems.
5
6 I dropped the ebuild into /usr/local/portage/kde-misc/foo-1.2.3-r4.ebuild and
7 have also set PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage in /etc/make.conf.
8
9 I have chown'd portage:portage everything under /usr/local/portage, including
10 the ebuild.
11
12 The ebuild in question is keyworded as "~amd64 ~x86", so I tried an:
13
14 $ ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge --search foo
15
16 and it gave me nothing.
17
18 On the advice of someone on IRC, I tried:
19
20 $ ebuild foo-1.2.3-r4.ebuild digest
21
22 from the /usr/local/portage/kde-misc directory, and I get the following:
23
24 Appending /usr/local to PORTDIR_OVERLAY...
25 !!! /usr/local does not seem to have a valid PORTDIR structure.
26
27 which seems quite odd to me. Why would it think that /usr/local should be my
28 overlay tree?
29
30 Can anyone suggest anywhere I'm going wrong?
31
32 Thanks,
33
34 Pete :-)
