Some Scripts for Gentoo by M. Väth

Last changes: February 4, 2015

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 mv overlay (that link will be down for quite a while; try the experimental cgit interface to the mv overlay instead) 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 mv overlay is to emerge app-portage/layman and then to call
layman -f
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.
