Welcome to the Funtoo Wiki!
Funtoo Linux is a derivative of Gentoo Linux, developed by Daniel Robbins (the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo Linux,) and a core team of developers, built around a basic vision of improving the core technologies in Gentoo Linux.
Funtoo Linux is a meta-distribution, which means that it can be built automatically from source and be customized with the functionality that you want it to have, and without the bloat that you want to avoid. We also offer systems that are optimized for your particular CPU, including Intel Core i7, Intel Atom, AMD Opteron, and more.
An optimized meta-distribution is the best way to experience the best possible performance from your specific hardware. See our Download page for a full list of supported processors.
Ultimate Flexibility for Developers
Does your Linux distribution allow two or more versions of php, python or ruby installed happily alongside each other? Funtoo Linux does. Are you tired of hand-building key packages from source to configure them exactly the way you want? Funtoo Linux allows you to tweak the build-time features of packages using handy things called USE variables. Other distributions are forced to either leave stuff out that you want, or include stuff you don't want.
We support the OpenVZ project and build up-to-date Funtoo Linux OpenVZ containers that can you can download. Also see VagrantUp for a nice way to deploy VirtualBox-based Funtoo Linux systems. Metro, our automated distro build tool, is capable of building OpenVZ, Linux VServer and Linux Container (LXC) images. Funtoo Linux also makes an excellent virtualization host system.
- Learn more about Funtoo Linux.
- Why you should Choose Funtoo: ...and how its different than other distros.
- Visit Funtoo Linux Projects and also look at the stuff online for Metro.
- Learn Core Linux concepts from articles originally written by Daniel Robbins.
Latest Funtoo News from Twitter
Funtoo Linux features native UTF-8 support enabled by default, a git-based, distributed Portage Tree and funtoo overlay, an enhanced Portage with more compact mini-manifest tree, automated imports of new Gentoo changes every 12 hours, GPT/GUID boot support and streamlined boot configuration, enhanced network configuration, up-to-date stable and current Funtoo stages, all built using Funtoo's Metro build tool. We also offer Ubuntu Server, Debian, RHEL and Fedora-based kernels.
Funtoo is currently supported on the following processor families :
- PC-compatible, both 32 and 64-bit (x86-32bit, x86-64bit)
- SPARC 64-bit (sparc64)
Funtoo Linux Installation will be familiar for Gentoo Linux users - it is quite similar, but it is much easier to install the kernel. Funtoo Linux has its own stage tarballs and Portage Tree that can be downloaded from official Funtoo Linux mirrors. Our Portage Tree is git-based and we use a slightly modified version of Portage 2.2.
