Install

root # emerge -av bash-completion

If you want to enable bash completion for any package that supports it, you can set the global USE flag bash-completion:

   /etc/portage/make.conf - Set bash-completion globally
USE="$USE bash-completion"

And then emerge -avN @world to enable bash-completion on packages you formerly built without that support.

However, you probably won't need bash completion on every package you install. So for a lighter system and faster completion, prefer enabling it on a per package basis.

Enable bash completion

You need to add the following to your .bashrc to load bash-completion.

   ~/.bashrc - enable bash completion
source /etc/profile.d/bash-completion.sh

Now you can enable completion for various programs with eselect.

user $ eselect bashcomp list
user $ eselect bashcomp enable gentoo

To enable bash completion for all packages, you can use the following.

root # eselect bashcomp enable --global {0..476}

To disable bash completion for all packages, you can use the following.

root # eselect bashcomp disable --global {0..476}
