Repository available here.

An overlay has been created with the ebuild files for librepilot and osgearth. To use this repository, you need to have layman installed and set up. 

Search for the config key overlay_defs in your /etc/layman/layman.cfg and uncomment it. Please note down the path that was given there (usually /etc/layman/overlays).

Fetch the repository definition file:

Code Block
curl -L > /etc/layman/overlays/librepilot.xml

Install the repository:

Code Block
layman -s librepilot

Emerge the librepilot package, taking note of the required use flag changes (app-misc/librepilot is marked as unstable)

Code Block
emerge -av =app-misc/librepilot-16.09


If you previously installed librepilot system wide by running "make install" as root, then before installing with the ebuild, run "make uninstall" as root. Failure to do so will lead to some strange errors as a result of library conflicts

titleNotes about 16.09

Since 16.09 the CDC driver is not installed by default, it is not needed for normal use excepted if VCP (serial) is needed.
Using Windows 10 the CDC driver is not needed anymore.

If you experience GCS crashes at startup or display issues, try installing the Mesa OpenGL driver.
