Hugin Compiling Gentoo
These are instructions to build hugin and the whole set of helper applications required from CVS/SVN.
Hugin is already in portage. However, even the current ~ keyworded version (0.7_beta4) is considered outdated by the Hugin developers. To get an up-to-date version, you have to build from CVS/SVN (i.e. follow this guide).
|UPDATE:||Hugin 0.7.0_rc2 is now available in portage. If you prefer a in-portage solution (instead of the bleeding edge), you should go for this one.|
These instructions are work in progress. They're testet on x86 only (though amd64 should work just fine). (Maybe ppc as well. If you try on ppc, please tell me if it works or not.)

Setting up the overlay
If you've never worked with a overlay, please read http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Installing_3rd_Party_Ebuilds to get an idea of what we're doing here.
The next steps are:
- Download the tarball for the overlay.
- Unpack the tarball.
- Tell portage about the overlay.
First sudo, so you have sufficient permissions:
sudo -s (enter your password)
Download the tarball:
Create an overlay directory: (if you already have one, you can leave this out)
Unpack the overlay tarball:
tar xjf hugin_overlay-0.1.tar.bz2 -C /usr/portage/local/
Add the overlay to your overlay list:
/usr/portage/local/hugin/to the list in PORTDIR_OVERLAY (space separated).
If there is no PORTDIR_OVERLAY defined, just put the line
Save and exit.
The versions in the overlay are masked as unstable. You'll have to unmask them:
Open /etc/portage/package.keywords (if it doesn't exist, create it) and add the following lines:
=media-gfx/hugin-9999 ~x86 =media-gfx/enblend-9999 ~x86 =media-libs/libpano13-9999 ~x86 =media-gfx/autopano-sift-c-9999 ~x86
Now the fun part! Run
emerge -av hugin
If you have libpano12 installed, you'll run in into a blocker warning. Please unmerge libpano12 (you'll get libpano13 for it ;) ):
emerge --unmerge libpano12
