Funtoo Linux

Funtoo Linux is a Linux-based operating system that is a variant of Gentoo Linux, and is led by Daniel Robbins, the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo Linux, who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL). We focus on the needs of our users, being production-ready, finding creative solutions to problems, and most importantly, creating a fun, pleasant community.

Expand the wiki!

The How to 'wiki' will help get you started on wiki editing. 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.

Ebuild pages recently updated: MediaWiki, Nginx, MySQL, AMD Catalyst Video Drivers, ACPI Daemon, Pianobar, Boot-Update, Php, Wordpress, Warsow more...

Distinctives

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.
