Layman

This Article is gentoo specific

protect system for unwanted overwrite by overlay

Maybe you know the problem, the new overlay want to replace system parts.
Last time Sabayon-overlay replace my openrc so next boot means “booting Sabayon Linux” ;)
Fixing this is easy, just add the overlay to your
/etc/portage/package.mask

*/*::pentoo**

Now you have to unmask the wanted packages from the overlay in your
/etc/portage/package.unmask
