unstable 124ddc7ecc08 2020-09-24 09:47:55 halcon74 a commit in unstable branch #2

A very EXPERIMENTAL overlay for my own use and testing/learning purposes.

Use it (with caution), if you want to. If you find a bug, please feel free to report it.


  • app-portage/g-cpan - So far for testing/learning purposes only.
  • app-text/evince - Building evince without gvfs and dbus. And it works!
  • dev-perl/Mojolicious - A "really live" ebuild. Each new stable (not development) release gets installed automatically without the need to edit the ebuild.
  • dev-vcs/hg-git - A version bump, relatively to the current 0.9.0_rc1 in ::gentoo (19.09.2020). Supports mercurial-5.5.1.
  • media-gfx/xnviewmp-bin - An attempt to build XnViewMP with system libraries. So far unsuccessful...
  • x11-misc/drm_master_util - Non-root Xorg without elogind (for Linux kernels <5.8).

How to add the overlay:

  • using Mercurial, from OSDN (possible with Portage >=3.0.8)

eselect repository add halcon-overlay mercurial
echo "sync-mercurial-pull-extra-opts = '-b default'" >> /etc/portage/repos.conf/eselect-repo.conf (if you don't do that, you may get unstable branch)
emerge --sync halcon-overlay (this requires dev-vcs/mercurial to be installed)

  • using Git, from GitHub

eselect repository add halcon-overlay git
emerge --sync halcon-overlay

I push the commits (via hg-git) simultaneously to:

  • Mercurial repository on OSDN -
  • Git repository on GitHub -

Gentoo Quality Assurance:

  • /var/db/repos/halcon-overlay # repoman -dx full

RepoMan scours the neighborhood...
RepoMan sez: "If everyone were like you, I'd be out of business!"

  • /var/db/repos/halcon-overlay # pkgcheck scan

PotentialStable: version 3.34.2: slot(0), stabled arches: [ amd64, x86 ], potentials: [ ~alpha, ~arm, ~arm64, ~ia64, ~ppc, ~ppc64, ~sparc ]
