Hello community!

I have some questions about installing playonlinux for gentoo distribution. As you can see I'm using Gentoo linux distribution and my arch is AMD64. And my questions:

1. How to install playonlinux on gentoo distribution? (Yeah, I know that I need to download package)

2. What to do with that package? (I'm idiot on installing tar.gz packages :/ done it ages ago so dont remember)


I'm looking forward to your answer.


Please help, and thanks for your spent time for reading my full of mistakes post.

You just have to extract these files and run "./playonlinux". PlayOnLinux is written in Python, so you have nothing to build, but Python must be installed first.

Citat


Simply extract that tar.bz file and follow those instructions. It should work for you.

Make sure that you do install Python, curl, and 7zip.

I just gave them to you. :) They are quoted in my post above.

I dont use, nor have I ever used Gentoo, so I cannot tell you exactly how to install things on Gentoo using its package manager.

$ sudo emerge --autounmask-write playonlinux.
it will then fail telling you you need to add a line to the file /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords. do that (just echo or copy and paste it in) and then: $ sudo emerge playonlinux and it will downoad, compile and install along with all the dependencies. There isn't a binary and it will probably take a couple of hours at least.

Python doesnt need a binary, and that is what POL is written in. Its an interpreted language. It may take a while to download the dependencies, but most of the time, they dont need to be compiled either.
