In Funtoo Linux, multiple types of profiles exist. These include:
;arch : One arch profile is enabled, at build time, and is not changed. This defines CPU architecture-specific settings. ;subarch : One subarch profile is typically enabled at build time, and defines the CPU optimizations in use. ;build : One build profile is enabled, at build time, and is generally not changed. It defines the type of build, such as 'current ' or 'stable ', and associated settings. ;flavor : One flavor is enabled per system, and can be changed by the user. This defines the general use of the system, such as 'minimal ', 'core ', 'workstation ' or 'desktop ' ;mix-ins : Zero or more mix-ins can be enabled that enable settings specific to a particular subset of features, such as 'gnome ', 'kde ', 'media ', 'mate ', 'X ', 'hardened '.
