Funtoo Linux First Steps
After booting into a new Funtoo Linux installation, you are ready to explore the full capabilities of your system. But first, you may want to perform these common steps:
Installing an Editor
By default, Funtoo Linux has the nano and vi editors installed. nano is the default editor.
If you have a favorite editor, you can install it now:
# emerge vim
Here is how to change the default system text editor:
# echo EDITOR=/usr/bin/vim > /etc/env.d/99editor
After logging in again, or typing env-update; source /etc/profile in the current shell, the new system editor will now be active.
