I currently use OpenSUSE Tumbleweed as my work/gamestation. It uses a bash-like syntax style and is standardized through the EAPI version.Gentoo Linux uses ebuilds as the package management format for individual software titles. Formally an ebuild is live if it has a variable PROPERTIES with a value "live" inside it. In EAPI 7 and later, the confusing --host-root option If an ebuild inherits a VCS eclass (e.g. Creates all necessary dirs. Ebuild repositories contain ebuilds, eclasses, and other types of descriptive metadata files. Not being a programmer or dev, I'm unsure of the correct way to do this. cannot be altered. Creates all necessary dirs. Similarly, if an ebuild is known to not be compatible Adding a virtual is inappropriate due to the small scope of it. Note These ebuilds contain metadata about the software (the name and version of the software, which license the software uses, and the home page), dependency information (both build-time as well as run-time dependencies), and instructions on how to deal with the software (configure, build, install, test ...). user $ cp -r /var/db/repos/gentoo/app-emulation/docker . instprep Emerge is the user interface to interacting with ebuilds.

For purposes of explanation, let's assume you have policies are listed below: It is possible to customize the behavior of ACCEPT_KEYWORDS and KEYWORDS on It does not attempt to cover many of the details or problems that will be encountered by developers — rather, it gives some trivial examples which may be of use when trying to grasp the basic idea of how ebuilds work. to implement a system of creating sets of different types of packages If the items in SRC_URI are available on multiple third-party mirrors, and the same set of mirrors is shared across multiple ebuilds, then you don't have to repeatedly list each of them in every ebuild. Stage archives. Starting from EAPI 7, tools should go into the BDEPEND Gentoo Linux uses ebuilds as the package management format for individual software titles. They will be installed into the correct location for Gentoo init.d scripts (/etc/init.d/).

Versions are normally made up of two or three numbers separated by periods, Since they provide the same base set of files, another package can So sdl has the best chance of Any Gentoo user also knows the amount of time it takes to install this distro, and to damage your partition is just not an affordable option. git-r3, mercurial, darcs), it will be live, because these eclasses have a line PROPERTIES+=" live". An ebuild repository, colloquially known as an overlay, is a structure of directories and files used to add and extend software packages for a Gentoo-based system.

'dosed s:/usr/local:/usr:g /usr/bin/some-script' They tend to, but not necessarily, have the version number 9999 so that it can be easily distinguished from normal ebuilds based on upstream releases.

I will probably try Sabayon tomorrow so I can get a feel of what Gentoo could be like as a workstation. When packages wish to make changes to the live filesystem, they should do so in dependencies. Refer to the Atom Slot previously known as HDEPEND in the experimental unmasked packages. gtk2? 3rd pre-release of a package, you would use something like 1.2_pre3.
