Installing Ren`Py on Gentoo Linux

Install layman and follow post-installation instructions:

# emerge -n layman

Add (or sync if added already) experimental "sunrise" overlay:

# layman -a sunrise || layman -s sunrise

If you are not ~arch user, add proper ~arch keyword:

# echo "dev-games/renpy" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords \
 || echo "dev-games/renpy" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/renpy
# echo "dev-games/renpy-modules" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords \
 || echo "dev-games/renpy-modules" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/renpy

Optionaly, you can omit installing some parts of the renpy package by disabling USE flags.
You can safely disable development, doc and examples USE flags if you only need to play renpy games (not develop):

# echo "dev-games/renpy -development -doc -examples" >> /etc/portage/package.use

And finally install renpy:

# emerge dev-games/renpy
