Incorrect Gentoo install instuctions

Postby stonewareslord » Wed Aug 24, 2016 10:19 pm

Gentoo will not build the aria2 plugin into uget unless the use flag is enabled. On this page:, however, there is no mention of use flags. I would change:
Code: Select all
emerge -av aria2
to something like
Code: Select all
echo 'www-client/uget aria2' >> /usr/portage/package.use/package.use
emerge -av aria2 uget

well the instructions are actually wrong for many reasons, mostly because the version in portage is incredibly out of date. Unfortunately, the maintainer of our app in portage doesn't seem to care that it is out of date.

the following bug report has the latest build of 2.0.8 -


Edit: Actually, it looks like Alex has abandoned uGet as the maintainer.

This package needs a new maintainer!
If you are interested in helping with the maintenance of uget, please get in touch with our Proxy Maintainers team.
