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.
Add an Ebuild page: (see Adding an Ebuild to the Wiki for instructions)
The How to 'wiki' sidebar link has several formatting examples. Have a look at Requested-Documents and pages that need to be updated. Please search the wiki before creating pages to ensure that you are not duplicating efforts.
Funtoo Linux packages are installed from source code, automatically, thanks to the Portage ports system., inspired by the FreeBSD ports system, but written in Python and with full advanced package management functionality. 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.
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.
