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.
/etc/rc.conf contains system settings related to the system initialization scripts. It is a good idea to set rc_logger to YES. This will instruct OpenRC to launch a logging daemon to log the entire rc process to /var/log/rc.log.
