Revive ripple-client-desktop

Update: as of Jan 15, 2019, trading is working.

The first goal is to make it fully functional with RippleAPI.

Current status is most read only operations are working except order book.

Please follow this twitter thread for the most recent updates:
This weekend I tried to revive ripple-client-desktop. l I have reached a point at which I can run gulp without any warning on the command line. However, the app stuck at loading. Then I figured out that the client uses an ancient ripple-lib API. — r0bertz (@r0bertz) December 17, 2018

A live binutils ebuild

I have written a live binutils ebuild.
It is now in my loongson overlay.
I wrote it because binutils cvs already got loongson 2e and 2f support, but new version is not released yet.
The ebuild itself is quite simple, thanks to cvs.eclass and toolchain.eclass.
However, in order to make it really work, I have to modify cvs.eclass.
The reason is:
The checked out directory name of binutils is called "src". While cvs.eclass expects the checked out directory name is the same as the package name, i.e. "binutils". Unfortunately, "co -d binutils binutils" doesn't work. If I use "co -d binutils binutils", I can only checked out the "binutils" directory, while the actual binutils module contains more than that.

So, the most straight forward way to solve this would be to "mv src binutils" after checking it out, and this was exactly what I did.

I need a new variable name to hold "src". I call it ECVS_CO_DIR.

Some other things to pay …

Share /usr/portage via NFS

Recently I have tried sharing /usr/portage among several boxes via NFS after I've read
I followed portage's manpage, created /etc/portage/modules on nfs client
$ cat /etc/portage/modules
portdbapi.auxdbmodule = cache.metadata_overlay.database
And removed all cache files under /var/cache/edb/dep/usr/portage
So that I don't need to run emerge --metadata on nfs client after emerge --sync.

It is not over yet for eix users. If you have a $HOME/.eixrc and defines in it PORTDIR_CACHE_METHOD as something like "portage-2.1"/"cdb"/"sqlite"(check man eix), you may want to remove the ~/.eixrc file. Since those methods requires you to run emerge --metadata before update-eix, and thus defeat our purpose in the first place.
