What are community Repositories

Community Repositories are user-managed packages repositories, users can recompile packages with different settings, add their own ones and make all available to other people. Repository publishers are responsible of how a package is compiled and what is compiled.

Adding and Using A Community Repository

To start using a community repository to install packages we need to add its identification string to

/etc/entropy/repositories.conf.d/<community repository>

ID strings can be found in the repository information section under the relevant repositories name.

Next sync your repositories by running:

# equo up


Once installed the packages will be available through Rigo and Equo and can be installed as though they were in the main repository. If an updated package is contained within a repository you will be notified by the Sabayon update applet.
