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...
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.
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.Flies of a particular kind, i.e. time-flies, are fond of an arrow.
