Default gnome overlay?

This bug:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=198712

says the latest rhythmbox ebuild is in the gnome overlay. That
overlay isn't available via layman. What is the preferred method of
retrieving that overlay?

Default gnome overlay?

It looks available on layman:

(7:08:#)── layman -L | grep gnome
* gnome [Git ] (source:
git://git.overlays.gentoo....)

well, I just downloaded the overlay through git to get the latest
rhythmbox also. You don't need to use the whole overlay though, cause
it will upgrade more than necessary, and you may not want the unstable
versions of everything in it.

If you have a roll-your-own overlay already (and who doesn't?!) start by
copying just the rhythbox directory from the gnome overlay into your
overlay. Don't put the gnome overlay into /etc/make.conf. Then `emerge
-u rhythmbox`. It will complain, so just copy the needed package, and
emerge again. Repeat until there are no more complaints!

The only other thing to watch out for is totem. You need the new
totem-pl-parser for rhythmbox-0.11.4 (not 0.11.3) which was previously
part of totem. So you need to first uninstall totem if you have it.
totem-pl-parser will be pulled in as needed so no need to explicitly
emerge it.

Oh, and finally, my overlay instructions above won't help you when the
overlay is updated, as you copied the ebuilds into your own overlay.
You could instead symlink them.

I needed to emerge git for the gnome overlay to show up in layman. I
always thought there should be a subversion and git USE flag for
layman.

Thanks for the help. I'm updating rhythmbox via layman now. Not sure
why evolution-data-server is a dependency though.

it's required by totem-pl-parser for some reason:

>=gnome-extra/evolution-data-server-1.12

don't ask me why. Maybe someone else can comment?

about as far as you need to go.

Do you have the eds USE flag set?

No I've actually got -eds in make.conf.
