Re: [gentoo-alpha] Need X testers on Alpha. I think we've got it this time.

Copy the xorg-server-9999.ebuild from your layman overlay to your
local overlay (/usr/local/portage/x11-base/xorg-server/). Edit the
file and change this line:

In the folder where this new ebuild exists, run `ebuild
xorg-server-9999.ebuild digest`

Just adding this for the record, you don't even need to edit the ebuild anymore. Just add the following line to your /etc/make.conf and follow the rest of the procedure Matt explained :


That will override EGIT_REPO_URI from the ebuild.

I don't know what your level of proficiency with Gentoo is, but if
it's not high then this process will sound hard--trust me, it's really
not. The alternative would be much more complicated.

This is absolutely right. Using the x11 overlay is much much simpler than jhbuild or build.sh.

If you have any issues with the x11 overlay, don't hesitate to drop by on #gentoo-desktop on FreeNode, there's always someone to help.
