    Using Non-Official ebuilds...


    Alrighty. I'm trying to use an application called iriverter. Out of the kindness of the developer's heart, he made an unofficial Gentoo ebuild. I am attempting to use it (the source install is not happy, and he recommends trying the ebuild instead). Since I've never used a non-official ebuild before, I'm having a few problems.

    I have attempted using the instructions at:

    http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=3&chap=5

    Here is what I have done:

    - I created the /usr/local/portage/media-video directory.
    - I placed the iriverter-0.14.ebuild file into the above directory.
    - In /etc/make.conf, I declared PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage/
    - I ran emerge --sync

    Now, when I attempt
    Code:
    emerge iriverter -pv
    emerge media-video/iriverter -pv
    emerge =iriverter-0.14 -pv
    emerge =media-video/iriverter-0.14 -pv
    None of these work. They tell me that the ebuild doesn't exist.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks.

    For now, just do:
    Code:
    ebuild /usr/local/portage/media-video/.../foo.ebuild merge
    Also, you wouldn't happen to be doing this through sudo or something similar?

    Code:
    tux media-video # ebuild iriverter-0.14.ebuild merge
    Disabling noauto in features... merge disables it. (qmerge doesn't)
    !!! aux_get(): ebuild path for 'portage/iriverter-0.14' not specified:
    !!!            None
    !!! aux_get(): ebuild path for 'portage/iriverter-0.14' not specified:
    !!!            None
    doebuild(): aux_get() error reading portage/iriverter-0.14; aborting.
    No, I do it as root (with su).

    So, is this an error with the ebuild? Or an error that should never happen?

    I AM RETARDED!!

    The entire error was that the ebuild was at:

    /usr/local/portage/media-video

    and not

    /usr/local/portage/media-video/iriverter/

    I hate computers...
