Subject: [gentoo-user] layman: could not connect to server
Date: Wed, 25 Mar 2009 20:49:24
I've got a problem concerning syncing of some overlays with layman:

"layman -s vmware"
* Running command "/usr/bin/svn up "/usr/local/portage/layman/vmware""...
svn: OPTIONS of '': could not 
connect to server (
* Errors:
* ------
* Failed to sync overlay "vmware".
* Error was: Syncing overlay "vmware" returned status 256!

But pointing firefox to lists 
the directory.

Same problem arose by syncing the sabayon overlay.
Courageously removing this overlay with " layman -d sabayon" now I'm unable to 
add it again! Same error as mentioned before.

Paradoxically syncing works with pro-audio overlay.

All overlays use subversion. Re-emerging subversion doesn't change anything.

I'm on ~amd64

Googling around didn't help.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
