Gentoo Science Overlay

Build Status

This is a Gentoo Linux ebuild repository which provides numerous scientific software packages.


As per the current Portage specifications, ebuild repositories (a.k.a. overlays) should be managed via file collections under /etc/portage/repos.conf/. To enable our overlay without the need for additional software, simply run (as root):

wget -O /etc/portage/repos.conf/science

To start using the overlay you now only need to get the ebuilds, via emerge --sync.


The BLAS and LAPACK switching framework in ::gentoo has been implemented. The Science overlay will no longer carry blas and lapack ebuilds.


To uninstall the overlay run (again, as root):

rm /etc/portage/repos.conf/science
rm /var/db/repos/science -rf


You can ask for help on Freenode IRC in #gentoo-science. Alternatively you can report bugs on the GitHub issues page.


Please fork! We will merge! See our contributing guide.
