Latest commit 36a1345 @leycec app-vim/powerline-vim: 2.3 symlinked.
The now-obsolete version 2.2 of the Vim-specific Powerline bindings have been
desymlinked, and version 2.3 of the same have been symlinked. Such is balance
restored to the powerless force.

Welcome to raiagent, the third-party Gentoo overlay where Raia and gentlemanly conduct collide.







raiagent publishes well-documented ebuilds unabashedly biased toward technological self-empowerment.1

1. We actually believe most of the specious doggerel tastelessly defibrillating this sentence.


Notable command-line interface (CLI) ebuilds include:


Notable peer-to-peer (P2P) ebuilds include:

  • The Invisible Internet Project (I2P), an anonymous peer-to-peer communication layer colloquially referred to as a "darknet." (Think Tor hidden services on illict performance-enhancing stimulants.) To safeguard users against deanonymization attacks specific to obsolete I2P releases, raiagent unofficially hosts 0-day I2P ebuilds (i.e., ebuilds ideally updated the same day as official I2P updates). For quality assurance, our ebuilds are routinely synchronized against Portage's older I2P ebuilds.


Notable Python-centric ebuilds include:


Notable ricing (i.e., soft- and/or hardware performance tweaking) ebuilds include:

  • phc-k8, an out-of-tree Linux kernel module supporting undervolting of AMD chipsets. Portage's official phc-k8 ebuilds are several years out-of-date and, unsurprisingly, fail to build against modern Linux kernels. raiagent unofficially hosts well-maintained phc-k8 ebuilds successfully building against all stable gentoo-sources kernels, complete with user-configurable OpenRC startup script and configuration file.


Notable roguelike (i.e., games featuring permanent death as a prominent mechanic) ebuilds include:


raiagent is installable in the usual way. Assuming use of emerge (and not that other disreputable fellow), this is:

  • Install layman, Gentoo's official overlay manager.

      $ emerge layman
      $ echo 'source /var/lib/layman/make.conf' >> /etc/portage/make.conf
  • Add the raiagent overlay.

    $ layman -a raiagent
  • Synchronize overlays.

    $ layman -S


raiagent is thanks to the concerted efforts of numerous committers and issue reporters – especially:

  • Nikolai Aleksandrovich Pavlov (ZyX-I), whose gracious contributions to the suite of Powerline ebuilds has been unutterably invaluable. Thanks, Nikolai. Your Sisyphean efforts will not go unremembered.
