    Missing source file on portage server


    I have been trying to install alsamixer on gentoo-2.6.15-r1 but it seems my rsync server is a partial portage server and it does not have fltk-1.1.7-source.tar.bz2 on it (which is a dependency for alsamixer). It returned...
    Code:
    link_stat "fltk-1.1.7-source.tar.bz2" (in gentoo-packages) failed: No such file or directory
    client: nothing to do: perhaps you need to specify some filenames or the --recursive option?
    rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(653)
    !!! Couldn't download fltk-1.1.7-source.tar.bz2. Aborting.
    I thought of two possible solutions of two things

    1. It might be that this particular version of fltk is unavailable on the server but has older versions. How do I pick the older version? (In terms of command issued to specify that I want the latest version available on the server..etc..)

    2. I have downloaded fltk-1.1.7-source.tar.bz2 by myslef from somewhere else and have installed it too. But I don't of any way to notify emerge that I have installed fltk on my own and it can start installing other packages now. Can somebody tell me how to do this , if it is possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    Uninstall the version of fltk you installed on your own and put the tarball into /usr/portage/distfiles. After you do this, emerge it and it should work seamlessly.
