Funtoo Linux is a Linux-based operating system that is a variant of Gentoo Linux, led by Daniel Robbins, the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo Linux, who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) of the project.

Funtoo Linux is optimized for your CPU for the best possible performance, supporting Intel Core i7, AMD FX Processors, and others. See what we support. See Distinctives, below, for more information about what makes Funtoo Linux special.

Expand the wiki!

The How to 'wiki' will help get you started on wiki editing. Have a look at Requested-Documents and pages that need to be updated.

See Ebuilds for a list of all ebuild pages, and Adding an Ebuild to the Wiki for information on how to add one.


Funtoo Linux is a meta-distribution, which means it is built (fully automatically) with the functionality and optimizations that you want, not what some distro maintainer thought was best for you. Funtoo Linux packages are installed directly from source code, thanks to the Portage ports system, inspired by the FreeBSD ports system, written in Python and with full advanced package management functionality.

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

In contrast to Gentoo Linux, we offer a number of innovations, including our extensive use of git, our profile system, boot-update boot management tool, our incredibly flexible template-based networking scripts, Metro distribution build system, support of Debian, RHEL and other kernels, enhanced Python support, Portage mini-manifests, user-centric distribution model, and a large number of community infrastructure improvements.
