This page documents flavors and mix-ins, which are components of Funtoo profiles:

Flavors

A system can have only one flavor profile enabled at a time. The following flavors are available:

minimal
This flavor defines the most minimal possible flavor. It currently only contains defaults for all Funtoo Linux flavors.
core
The core flavor is the minimal flavor plus reasonable USE options, and is used for stage3 builds.
server
The server flavor is intended for servers but at this time just tracks core.
workstation
The workstation flavor is a minimal desktop system. It includes the core flavor plus these mix-ins: X, audio, dvd, media, console-extras
desktop
The desktop flavor is a full-featured desktop system, minus desktop environment (add KDE, GNOME or XFCE as a mix-in.) It includes the workstation flavor plus printing support.
