GNOME 3.14 is now available in Funtoo, masked for testing. Please help us test it. If you find bugs, or want more detailed information on what is included, please see  [[https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-1637 FL-1637]].

==init==
 +
to start xdm immediately:
 +
<console>###i## rc-service xdm start</console>
  
First, sync the tree if you haven't recently as you need access to a file in the tree:
+
to start xdm upon boot:
 
+
<console>###i## rc-update add xdm</console>
<console>
+
{{EbuildFooter}}
###i## emerge --sync
+
</console>
+
 
+
Now, create a symlink to the GNOME 3.14 mask file, reversijng it in the process:
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## cd /etc/portage/package.unmask
+
###i## ln -s /var/portage/tree/funtoo/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome .
+
</console>
+
 
+
Then to simplify matters, enable the gnome mix-in:
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## eselect profile list
+
##g##Currently available mix-ins profiles: 
+
  [11]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/audio
