Citadel Ebuild

The Gentoo Ebuilds are now in the Sunrise overlay. So you just need to use layman to install sunrise on your system and then you can emerge them as usual. The WebCit ebuild is unnfortunately hardmasked, since the overlay maintainers consider the included TinyMCE, Protaculous/Scriptaculous as “third party libraries”. Don't get scared away! They are third party addditions, but like most content management system or other webinterface, a WYSIWYG editor and some javascripting toolsets are part of the package.

The steps in detail

If you are unfamiliar with local overlays, read up here: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Overlay

Add layman and the Sunrise overlay to your system

emerge layman
layman -a sunrise

Integrate the custom Ebuild into the Portage

Now you have the ebuilds in place on your system. We need to befriend the system with the packages:

The file /etc/portage/package.keywords holds a list of packages which are allowed to be installed in “unstable” versions. Since our packages are not in the official portage tree, they are treated as “testing”. They are masked by a keyword, depending on your systems architecture. If you never used keywords or are unsure what your architecture is, just copy and paste the examples below, they work on most 32bit and 64bit Gentoo PC installations.

echo "dev-libs/libcitadel ~x86 ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo "mail-mta/citadel ~x86 ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo "www-servers/webcit ~x86 ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo "www-servers/webcit" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

Getting ready to build and install the programs

The folowing command will ask you if you are ok with the choice it makes. Just hit enter or type in “y(es)” and on we go.

emerge citadel -va

If you want to install WebCit aswell use

emerge citadel webcit -va

Configuring it

First time users should use the

emerge --config mail-mta/citadel-$VERSION"
