FAQs

  • What does Himerge really/exactly stands for?

It technically stands for "Haskell Interface for eMerge" ; though I personally can also think about some funny terms like:

  - Hi 'emerge'
  - High-Emerge
  - Himerge Is (only) emerge
  • How do I install Himerge?

Since emerge is the Gentoo package manager, these instructions are unlikely to work on any other distro/OS unless of course you have installed prefixed portage.

You need to unmask several packages, by putting the following in /etc/portage/package.keywords to run the 'unstable' branch. Note that these are actually developed in the haskell overlay before moving to the portage tree.

# haskell
dev-lang/ghc
dev-haskell/cabal
# haskell deps
dev-haskell/mtl
dev-haskell/filepath
dev-haskell/regex-base
dev-haskell/regex-posix
dev-haskell/regex-compat

# himerge
app-portage/himerge
dev-haskell/parallel
dev-haskell/gtk2hs

If you're currently running stable ghc, you should upgrade ghc first and then run ghc-updater. Either way, it would be good to emerge ghc first, then emerge himerge.

  • Every time I try to search for a package I receive the 'Package not found' error

Himerge uses eix for searching packages in the tree, so every time you sync, you also need to update the eix database. After a sync just do Ctrl+U or go to the "Tools -> Update Eix" option in the main menu bar to solve it.

Note: The eix database is automatically updated after every sync operation since Himerge version 0.17.3.
