You may want to customize some basic settings like the number of concurrent jobs to fit your hardware's capabilities or the directory to use for produced stage archives. This is accomplished by editing
~/.metro which is the Metro's master configuration file.
Please note that
path/install must point to where metro was installed. Point
path/distfiles to where your distfiles reside. Also set
path/mirror/group to the owner and group of all the files that will be written to the build repository directory, which by default (as per the configuration file) is at
/home/mirror/funtoo. The cache directory normally resides inside the temp directory -- this can be modified as desired. The cache directory can end up holding many cached .tbz2 packages, and eat up a lot of storage. You may want to place the temp directory on faster storage, for faster compile times, and place the cache directory on slower, but more plentiful storage.
