e17 on gentoo

Posted on May 21, 2010

So, I just emerged enlightenment on my laptop from the official overlay maintained by the Enlightenment developers.

http://trac.enlightenment.org/e/wiki/Gentoo

layman -o http://svn.enlightenment.org/svn/e/trunk/packaging/gentoo/Documentation/layman/overlays.xml -f -a efl
emerge -av @enlightenment

However, while compiling dev-libs/embryo-9999, portage got stuck, which I solved by disabling the graphite loop optimizations from my CFLAGS. After logging into e17, just enable the composite extension, and drool over the cool desktop effects in enlightenment ;-)
