  • 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
# haskell deps

# himerge

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 data-base. After a sync just do Ctrl+U or go to the "Tools -> Update Eix" option in the main menu bar to solve it.

Tutorial en español (borrador)


Este tutorial pretende ser una pequeña guía del frontend para el gestor de paquetes emerge llamado Himerge, programado por Luis Francisco Araujo teniendo en mente a los usuarios poco experimentados en el uso de emerge, ofreciéndoles una interfaz atractiva, limpia y muy sencilla de usar.
