Project:GURU/Information for End Users
End User Guide
Those who just want to install and use the packages that GURU offers can follow the guide below to add GURU as an ebuild repository.
Adding the GURU repository
The GURU repository can either be added manually or by using one of the ebuild repository management tools. In all cases please ensure that dev-vcs/git is installed, since this is the
sync-type that GURU uses.
Using eselect repository
First install app-eselect/eselect-repository if it is not already installed, and next enable the GURU repository:
eselect repository enable guru
More information on app-eselect/eselect-repository can be found on the eselect-repository page.
First install app-portage/layman if it is not already installed, and next enable the GURU repository:
layman -a guru
More information on app-portage/layman can be found on the Layman page.
app-eselect/eselect-repository supersedes app-portage/layman
Manually adding a repos.conf entry
To manually add the GURU repository, simply add the following file:
[guru] location = /var/db/repos/guru sync-type = git sync-uri = https://github.com/gentoo-mirror/guru.git
More information on
repos.conf can be found on the /etc/portage/repos.conf page.
Once the GURU repository is added, all that is left to do is to sync the repository:
emerge --sync guru
emaint sync --repo guru.
emaint syncwill synchronize all repositories that have
auto-syncenabled (which is the default). This can therefore be used to conveniently synchronize all added repositories with one command.
Congratulations, you can now emerge and use the packages in the GURU repository!
