layman: could not connect to server
I've got a problem concerning syncing of some overlays with layman:
"layman -s vmware"
* Running command "/usr/bin/svn up "/usr/local/portage/layman/vmware""...
svn: OPTIONS of 'http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/proj/vmware/trunk': could not connect to server (http://overlays.gentoo.org)
* Failed to sync overlay "vmware".
* Error was: Syncing overlay "vmware" returned status 256!
But pointing firefox to http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/proj/vmware/trunk lists the directory.
Same problem arose by syncing the sabayon overlay.
Courageously removing this overlay with " layman -d sabayon" now I'm unable to add it again! Same error as mentioned before.
Paradoxically syncing works with pro-audio overlay.
All overlays use subversion. Re-emerging subversion doesn't change anything.
I'm on ~amd64
Googling around didn't help.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
