On this page there are some scripts which are useful
for the Gentoo linux distribution.
All scripts from this page can be installed directly from the
(that link will be down for quite a while; try the experimental
cgit interface to the mv overlay
I recommend to use this overlay for installing, since then you will also get
informed about changes of the scripts. The simplest way to install the
is to emerge app-portage/layman and then to call
layman -a mv.
To update the overlay regularly, you can put the line
into /etc/eix-sync.conf (create the file if you have not done so earlier)
and then use
eix-sync (instead of emerge --sync).
Alternatively, with >=portage-2.16 you can also use the new git sync features to keep the mv overlay up-to-date.
