Funtoo Profiles

250 bytes added, 4 years ago
adding profile table from install docs because it's clearer.
Historically, users have had to add a large number of settings to [[Make.conf|{{c|/etc/make.conf}}]] to customize their Gentoo or Funtoo Linux system, which made setup of the operating system more difficult than it should be. In Gentoo Linux, it is possible to only define one ''system profile''. Think of a system profile as the default settings that Portage uses for building everything on your system. Rather than a single profile, Funtoo Linux uses multiple sub-profiles per , and moves many types of settings that are normally stored in {{c|/etc/make.conf}} into the profile system. The following profile types are available in Funtoo Linux:
{{2ColHead|Sub-ProfileType|Description}}{{2Col|{{c|arch}}|This defines CPUTypically {{c|x86-specific settings. Only one arch profile is enabled at install time, and cannot be changed.32bit}}{{2Col|or {{c|subarchx86-64bit}}|This further refines , this defines the CPU-specific settingsprocessor type and support of your system.

One build profile is enabled, at install time, and is generally not changed.}}{{2Col|or {{c|flavorexperimental}}|This defines the intended use of Funtoo, such as build. {{c|minimalcurrent}}, systems will have newer packages unmasked than {{c|corestable}} systems.
