Welcome to Funtoo Linux

Funtoo Linux is a Linux-based operating system that is a variant of Gentoo Linux. Funtoo Linux is:

  • ...fun! Our priority is to create a great, supportive and responsive user community.
  • ...user-centric and collaborative. Everyone is considered a user of Funtoo, first and foremost. You don't need any special privileges to collaborate with us.
  • ...production-oriented: Our goal is to have Funtoo be useful for real-world tasks. We use Funtoo to do stuff, like host our infrastructure. It needs to work.
  • ...creative: We seek creative, elegant and maintainable solutions to problems of all kinds.

Learn more about Funtoo Linux's development priorities at Funtoo Linux Vision.

Getting Started

We encourage you to install Funtoo Linux, and get involved in our user community. Get to know fellow Funtoo Linux users on our forums. If you have any improvements or find any bugs in Funtoo Linux, you are strongly encouraged to report them on our bug tracker. We take all bugs seriously, and all work performed on Funtoo Linux is tracked on our bug tracker, for purposes of transparency.

Funtoo Linux has a very active IRC community on Freenode, in the #funtoo channel, and you are encouraged to hang out online with us.

Distinctives

Funtoo Linux is led by Daniel Robbins, the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo Linux, who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) of the project. Our organizational structure consists of BDFL and a small number of support staff, as well as members of our user community who are involved in improving Funtoo Linux. Developement efforts are driven by the BDFL as well as our users, and efforts are under way to implement various mechanisms to allow supporters of Funtoo Linux to chart the future direction of the project.

Funtoo Linux packages are installed from source code, automatically, thanks to the Portage ports system. Funtoo Linux has its own distinct ports tree (repository of packages), which is based on Gentoo's. Every several hours, the Funtoo Linux Portage tree is updated using an automated merge process, to include the latest changes from Gentoo Linux, Funtoo Linux developers and contributors, as well as other independent developers.

We use Git for all our development, and we also use Git to deliver our Portage tree to you.

Help Document Ebuilds!

We need help adding documentation for ebuilds to our wiki. See below for a list of pages:

This page lists all ebuilds with pages on the Funtoo Linux wiki.
