This is a template that is used as part of the Installation instructions, which covers initial system configuration after first boot using profiles. Templates are being used to allow multiple variant install guides that use most of the same re-usable parts.
Once you have rebooted into Funtoo Linux, you can further customize your system to your needs by using Funtoo Profiles.
x86-64bit, this defines the processor type and support of your system. This is defined when your stage was built and should not be changed.

desktop, and will set default USE flags appropriate for your needs.
- define various optional settings that you may be interested in enabling.
One arch, build and flavor must be set for each Funtoo Linux system, while mix-ins are optional and you can enable more than one if desired.
Remember that profiles can often be inherited. For example, the
desktop flavor inherits the
workstation flavor settings, which in turn inherits the
audio mix-ins. You can view this by using eselect:
(chroot) # eselect profile show Currently set profiles: arch: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/arch/x86-64bit build: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/build/current flavor: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/flavor/desktop mix-ins: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/kde Automatically enabled profiles: mix-ins: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/print mix-ins: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/X mix-ins: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/audio mix-ins: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/dvd mix-ins: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/media mix-ins: gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/console-extras
To view installed profiles:
(chroot) # eselect profile list
