My Gentoo ebuild repository, containing Wayland safe builds of my most used packages that are not present in official Gentoo or guru repo.

This page was published on , and was last updated on .


This is my gentoo-overlay containing some wayland-safe builds.

The packages in this overlay cannot be found in the official Gentoo or Guru package repositories, they might not be stable and should be used at your own risk.

Using the overlay

To use this overlay, first read and understand the Gentoo documentation on /etc/portage/repos.conf, then either fork the repo to use for yourself, or you can trust me and add the repo directly as an overlay by doing the following.

Create a new file /etc/portage/repos.conf/cowaybuilds.conf with the following contents.

location = /var/db/repos/cowaybuilds
sync-type = git
sync-uri =
priority = 100

Sync the repository with emaint sync -r cowaybuilds


The repository contains the following packages


The following packages are experimentel patchs to build without X dependencies, and might break some packages.

  • virtual/opengl
  • media-libs/glew
