This is my work. I migrated it from and will continue all edits here. Tatsh

Thanks for this Tatsh.

I'm currently setting up mingw and likely will have some things on the wiki to clarify, I'll list them here for discussion and then incorporate the results.

  • Is libssp required for mingw, or is it only needed for programs which require speech signal processing? (wiki leads me to think it is required for mingw)
  • I'm going to put a generic "Hello World" example in the wiki, allowing new users to test if environment was set up correctly
  • Would this wiki be a good place to include examples of .vimrc and other pertinent config files?

More effective solution to a overlay?

Talk status
This discussion is done.

I was recommended to use /etc/portage/repos.conf/gentoo.conf instead of PORTDIR_OVERLAY and based on current experience i do believe that it's more effective then using `PORTDIR_OVERLAY` especially if end-user uses Gentoo Overlays. Recommends adding it to a wiki i lack the knowledge to make such an edit.

/usr/portage is not an overlay

Talk status
This discussion is done.

using: $ crossdev --ov-output /usr/portage {whatever} is a terrible idea. The result is a directory stuffed under /usr/portage which completely breaks your usual emerge --sync by causing infinite retries. --Kuzetsa (talk) 23:02, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

Changed in a previous edit. --Grknight (talk) 15:19, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Can you provide more informations about USE flags? namely those mentioned on the wiki page?
