# OSSDL overlay for Gentoo

Author: Mark Kubacki et al. http://github.com/wmark/ossdl-overlay https://bitbucket.org/wmark/ossdl-overlay

## Installation and Usage

To install:

mkdir -p /var/portage/overlays

## Optional

### Binhost

Gentoo is not about compiling everything, don't waste your time on that. It is about customization. If you want to stick to the standards for 90% of all packages and if you are only interested in changing USE flags for the 10% where it matters - excellent. That is what the binhosts are for.

Find pre-compiled Gentoo packages here:

corei7-avx (64b):
https://binhost.ossdl.de/AMD64/Intel/corei7-avx/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/

Obviously you will have to point Gentoo's Portage to these overlays. Modify your make.conf as follows:

FEATURES="parallel-fetch getbinpkg"
PORTAGE_BINHOST="https://binhost.ossdl.de/AMD64/Intel/corei7-avx/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/"
