Gentoo Overlays

Overlays contain additional packages for your Gentoo system. Gentoo maintains a list of overlays for use in tools such as layman. You can find them below.

Using these overlays: You can add these overlays to your system using layman. They appear by the same name as on this page.

Adding your overlay: File a bug for the Overlays team to either request a Git repository on and/or add your overlay to the list.
Repository URL changes

We recently restructured the way you can access repositories hosted by Gentoo.
Any overlays from or need to be changed to a new URL. You can find more information in the news item.

scienceThe Gentoo Science Overlay is intended as a place to work outside of the main portage tree on experimental ebuilds. Our aim is to increase the rate of development of scientific packages for Gentoo, but ebuilds in this repository are by their very nature more experimental.
