Can't add a http:// based overlay

Post by tactix » Mon Jul 21, 2008 21:01

hi there,

i got no chance to add a http:// based overlay.
with a https:// or rsync based overlay everything works fine.
i try to remerge LAYMAN, SUBVERSION & NEON with different USE-FLAGS, several times, but everything with NO success :(
also i tried "#layman -d sabayon" followed by a "#layman -f -a sabayon" with no happy end :(
the source statement in MAKE.CONF is correctly set !
the NOCHECK:YES in LAYMAN.CFG doesn't matter !

i hope somebody can help me :lol:

my LAYMAN output:

# layman -a sabayon
* running command "/usr/bin/svn co "" "/usr/portage/local/sabayon""...
svn: PROPFIND request failed on >>/overlay<<
svn: PROPFIND of >>/overlay<<: Could not read status line: Connection reset by peer (
* Failed to add overlay "sabayon".
* Error was: Adding the overlay failed!

my machine:
kernel 2.6.25-gentoo-r6 with SMP
gcc 4.1.2
layman 1.1.1
subversion 1.4.6
neon 0.26.4
