The latest stable release is 1.8.0, but please note that it is quite dated at this point. For new projects we highly recommend to use the 2.0 code base from the git repository (see 2.0 Repository). If you need to use the 1.x series, we suggest you use a CVS checkout (see 1.x Repository) as there have been numerous bug fixes and build system tweaks since the last release.
- create an opensg directory in your local portage overlay: mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/media-gfx/opensg
- copy the attached ebuild into this dir
- create the digest: ebuild opensg-1.8_rc20070621.ebuild digest (this will download the sources and create additional portage files)
- emerge opensg
