Should you install Funtoo Linux?

Support Funtoo and help us grow! Donate $15 per month and get a free SSD-based Funtoo Virtual Container.


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) who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) of the project. Funtoo Linux is optimized 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 us special.

Other Funtoo Projects include:

IP Space Migration Continues

All Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! container.host.funtoo.org DNS will be updated after the move.

Funtoo Hosting IP Move

Funtoo user containers with IPs in the 72.18.x.x range will be gradually migrating to new IP addresses this week. If you have DNS entries for your containers, please be aware that your DNS will need to be updated.

Expand the wiki!

The How to 'wiki' will help you to learn how to create wiki documents. 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.

Translations

This wiki is using a new system to manage translations to non-English languages. View Special:PageTranslation for a list of pages that have been chosen to be translated. We ask that all translators focus on these pages -- the list will expand in the future. To translate a page, Create a Funtoo account, log in, and then click the "Translate this page" link at the top of the page. Translation is easy -- you can translate the page piece by piece so it is manageable. This new system is designed to keep translations up-to-date so that our non-English documentation remains current.

Distinctives

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. 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.

Getting Started

Install Funtoo Linux and get involved in our user community. Get to know fellow users on our forums. Funtoo Linux has a very active IRC community on Freenode (in the #funtoo channel) and you are encouraged to hang out with us.

We welcome bug reports and suggestions. Please report bugs to our bug tracker. We take all bugs seriously, and all work performed is tracked on our bug tracker, for purposes of transparency.

Create a Funtoo account, which allows you to log in to the wiki, forums and bug tracker. See the Auth FAQ for more info about account creation.

See our FAQ for answers to common questions.

Other resources include larrythecow.org, the Gentoo blog aggregator, kernel-seeds.org, and git.funtoo.org, our cgit repository browser.
