cannot emerge [Solved]

Postby slmeyer » Tue Aug 21, 2007 22:01

I'm on 3.3b mini x86_64.
I need it to install VirtualBox
I have the Sabayon overlay added so I do not understand that it says:

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "sabayon-sources.2.6.20.r3".


One more of the newbie issues I guess - any help?

you have a . instead of a - after sources, eg

Code: Select all
sophie ~ # emerge -av =sabayon-sources-2.6.20-r3

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  NS   ] sys-kernel/sabayon-sources-2.6.20-r3  USE="symlink -build" 43,307 kB [1]

Total: 1 package (1 in new slot), Size of downloads: 43,307 kB
Portage tree and overlays:
 [0] /usr/portage
 [1] /usr/portage/local/layman/sabayon

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]


Hope this helps :)

Yeah I see that I typed it wrong, but it does not help to type it right, and it seems that I can't emerge anything from the sabayon overlay. It seems that I somehow have gotten that one switched off. Is there any way to check or correct that?

I did what you suggested - did not help.
I edited make.conf and put in there:
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/portage/local/layman/sabayon"


Then it works
