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:
- Powerline, a general-purpose CLI statusline theme with cross-application support (e.g.,
raiagentofficially hosts Powerline ebuilds, co-maintained by a frequent Powerline committer.
- fishman's exuberant-ctags fork, an actively maintained ctags variant with modern language support (e.g., CSS, Objective-C).
raiagentunofficially hosts live ctags ebuilds in lieu of an official release.
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,
raiagentunofficially 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:
- PyInstaller's Python 3 branch, a cross-platform Python freezing utility.
raiagentunofficially hosts PyInstaller ebuilds, as well as frequently committing to the official PyInstaller codebase.
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phc-k8ebuilds are several years out-of-date and, unsurprisingly, fail to build against modern Linux kernels.
raiagentunofficially 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:
- Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead (C:DDA), a post-apocalyptic survival horror roguelike.
raiagentofficially hosts C:DDA ebuilds.
- UnReal World (URW), a Finnish Iron-Age wilderness survival roguelike.
raiagentunofficially hosts URW ebuilds.
raiagent is installable in the usual way. Assuming use of
emerge (and not
that other disreputable fellow), this is:
layman, Gentoo's official overlay manager.
$ emerge layman $ echo 'source /var/lib/layman/make.conf' >> /etc/portage/make.conf
$ layman -a raiagent
