Overlay "rostov"? [Solved]

Postby dunsurfin » Tue Sep 23, 2008 17:34

Just done an emerge --sync, updated portage and then layman -S.
This message came up before the successful synchronisation of Sabayon:

* Overlay "rostov" is missing a "description" entry!
* Overlay "rostov" is missing a "description" entry!
* Overlay "rostov" is missing a "description" entry!
* Running command "/usr/bin/svn update "/usr/portage/local/layman/sabayon""...

I only have the Sabayon Overlay. Running 3.5 x86-64 fully updated.

A google finds nothing relevant.

Code: Select all
$ layman -L | grep rostov
* akoya                     [Mercurial ] (source: https://hg.poildetroll.net...)
* haskell                   [Darcs     ] (source: http://code.haskell.org/ge...)
* lxde                      [Mercurial ] (source: http://bitbucket.org/yngwi...)
* oss-overlay               [Mercurial ] (source: http://hg.atheme.org/users...)
* rostov                    [Subversion] (source: svn://os-rostov.ru/overlay   )
$ layman -l | grep rostov
$

I wouldn't worry about it.

I'm not worried, thank you, just curious as to why it appeared. I expect it's one of those cosmic ray things and I should wrap my PC in aluminium foil! :)

I also received messages about hypotetic Rostov overlay,
after i installed himerge (haskell language written)
see in the post of FitzCarraldo. it is linked with something of the Haskell and Mercury languages...
No more messages after i removed the GHC. the Haskell compiler.
This may be used, if you will not more compile other haskell source codes...
The author may mak the topic as resolved;

I have neither himerge nor ghc installed. As I said, I'm not worried about it but I can't mark it as solved until I know why the message has suddenly started appearing.

I've been doing a bit of rummaging in /usr/portage/local/layman and found 2 xml files.

One is cache_effa47c90e557a6999447a42deb0520f.xml which has this inside:
http://sabayon.org/ Purpose To provide ebuilds that were created from the Sabayon Linux project such as customized programs, ebuilds not in the official portage, artwork, themes, etc.

The other is cache_65bd38402ac8431067b54904bd2ed2d1.xml which contains all this:
http://roslin.kicks-ass.net/ This is roslin, my small overlay. Enjoy! (: http://s3d.berlios.de/ Gentoo ebuilds for s3d and related packages. s3d is a 3d network display server which can be used as 3d desktop enviroment. Experimental overlay for desktop effects packages. Packages for players and authors of interactive fiction Gentoo ebuild overlay with misc stuff that I find interesting. http://pgfg.tuxfamily.org Overlay Perfect Gnome for Gentoo Experimental overlay for zen related packages. Miscellaneous ebuilds not yet in portage Linux Terminal Server Project overlay http://www.thepetersclan.net This is a FFMPEG svn and snapshot overlay.

large amounts snipped

http://www.mavrinac.com/index.cgi?page=tp Overlay for the Thousand Parsec framework for turn-based space empire building games. Kernel Virtual Machine userspace support http://ebuild.gentoo.gr.jp/ GentooJP provides custom ebuilds for Japanese Gentoo users. https://trac.poildetroll.net/trac/akoya Akoya overlay http://gentoo-wiki.com/Howto_OSS4 OSSv4 overlay http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/ruby/wiki Experimental ebuilds from the Ruby edge. http://dev.gentoo.org/~mueli Overlay which provides the bleeding edge on the kerberos integration in gentoo. http://git.overlays.gentoo.org/gitweb/? ... ;a=summary Ikelos's hospice for broken and damaged ebuilds. http://www.wolf31o2.org Wolf31o2's project ebuilds http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/lxde/ Repo for development of ebuilds for the LXDE desktop environment. http://os-rostov.ru/

So I've found the culprit but what is it, where did it come from and what do I do with it? Do I need it? I tried renaming it but running layman -S rebuilt it.

$ eix layman

Installed versions: 1.2.0-r1(17:43:30 01/08/08)(-git -subversion -test)

layman 1.1.1
I'm not sure where to find the USE flags enabled for layman. Looking at the Use List in Portato it says "Flag; test, Description; Workaround to pull in packages needed to run with FEATURES=test, portage-2.1.2 handles this internally, so don't set it in make.conf/package.use anymore"

Well, 1.1.1 is an older version (as you can see above, I've got 1.2.0-r1 installed) so that might explain why you're seeing the rostov message. You could try installing the latest version of layman:

# emerge -1v layman

As you can also see above, I don't have the git, subversion or test USE flags included.

This is interesting. In my system i'm testing himerge, therefore, i installed it..
when i see the post of FitzCarraldo, i have in mind that is something from Haskell, but...
if not (as in your caso) this message was taken or from the Sabayon overlay, or from the Portage itself...

see also:

seems that occurs this in Gentoo also.
