252penguin is <e>Pygoscelis papua</e>. The name <e>Gentoo</e> has been given to the
253penguin by the inhabitants of the Falkland Islands.

143 <p>Gentoo Linux is a fast, modern distribution with a clean and flexible 261
144 design -- in this respect, Gentoo may appeal to 262<p>

275<p>
276With Gentoo you can build your entire system from source completely using your
277choice of optimizations. You have complete control over what packages are or
278aren't installed. Gentoo provides you with numerous choices so you can install
279Gentoo to your own taste. This is why Gentoo is called a
280<e>meta-distribution</e>.
281</p>
282
283<p>
284Gentoo is very actively developed. Not only the <e>ebuilds</e> themselves (the
285package format Gentoo uses) but the entire distribution uses a rapid pace
286development style. Patches to the packages are quickly integrated in the
287mainline tree, documentation is updated on daily basis, portage features are
288added frequently, releases succeed each other quickly, ...

174 the Gentoo boot CD. It is possible, however, for users to install
175 Gentoo Linux directly from an already-existing Linux distribution.
176 Such users need only download the .tbz2 file, install the contents
177 on a spare partition (making sure to use the <c>p</c> flag when

188 The .iso file tends to get updated whenever we discover that somebody has
189 hardware that won't boot from our .iso. Since new kernel modules and
190 patches are constantly being generated, this situation probably won't
191 stabilise anytime soon.

197 <title>I'm finding things to be really unstable and I'm using "-O9 -ffast-math
198 -fomit-frame-pointer" optimizations. What gives?</title>
199 <body>
200 <p>Don't bother using anything higher than <c>-O3</c> since it isn't support by current versions
201 of gcc. Very aggressive optimizations sometimes cause the compiler to streamline the assembly code
202 to the point where it doesn't quite do the same thing anymore. A possible setting based on <e>Loc-Dog</e> (on IRC)'s CFLAGS
203 is <c>-O3 -mcpu=i686 -march=i686 -fforce-addr -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops
204 -frerun-cse-after-loop -frerun-loop-opt -falign-functions=4</c>, which is about
205 as much as I'd want to push global optimization settings. Beyond this, it's best to use
206 ultra-high optimizations only with specific packages where you really need that extra 2%,
207 (eg graphics and various multimedia programs), and where you can easily test the package
208 to ensure that it hasn't been optimized into oblivion.</p>
209 <p>Please try first to compile with CFLAGS <c>-march= -O2</c> before reporting a bug</p>

290 During installation the grub boot files are copied
291 to <path>/boot/grub</path> (<path>/boot/boot/grub</path> in Gentoo Linux 1.0_rc5 and
292 earlier.) Grub automatically looks in the <path>/boot/grub</path> directory on the boot
293 partition. (We strongly recommend having a separate no-auto boot partition mounted at
294 <path>/boot</path>, since that way it is much more difficult to clobber your kernel and boot
295 info by accident.) The above error generally arises from (a) not using a separate boot
296 partition, (b) forgetting to mount the boot partition at <path>/boot</path> before either
297 unpacking the build snapshot or running

495should <e>not</e> just place the file on the CD, but interpret the file as an
496entire CD.
497</p>

500There are lots of CD burning tools available; covering them all would be a

502</p>
503
504<ul>
505 <li>
506 With EasyCD Creator you select <c>File</c>, <c>Record CD
507 from CD image</c>. Then you change the <c>Files of type</c> to <c>ISO image
508 file</c>. Then locate the ISO file and click <c>Open</c>. When you click on
509 <c>Start recording</c> the ISO image will be burned correctly onto the CD-R.
510 </li>
511 <li>
512 With Nero Burning ROM, cancel the wizard which automatically pops up and
513 select <c>Burn Image</c> from the <c>Recoder</c> menu. Select the image you
514 want to burn and click <c>Open</c>. Now hit the <c>Burn</c> button and watch
515 your brand new CD being burnt.
516 </li>
517 <li>
518 With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc</c> (replace
519 <path>/dev/hdc</path> with your CD-RW drive's device path) followed
520 by the path to the ISO file :)
521 </li>
522 <li>
523 With K3B, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>CD</c> &gt; <c>Burn Image</c>. Then
524 you can locate your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click
525 <c>Start</c>.
526 </li>
527 <li>
528 With Mac OS X Panther, launch <c>Disk Utility</c> from
529 <path>Applications/Utilities</path>, select <c>Open</c> from the
530 <c>Images</c> menu, select the mounted disk image in the main window and
531 select <c>Burn</c> in the <c>Images</c> menu.

478 <body>
479 <p>As of Portage 1.5 onwards, <path>/etc/make.defaults</path> is antiquated;
480 if you have portage-1.5-r1 or above installed then you can safely delete it.
481 This file has been replaced by <path>/etc/make.profile/make.defaults</path>
482 (<path>/etc/make.profile</path> should actually be a symlink to,
483 <path>/usr/portage/profiles/default</path>),
484 which contains system profile-specific default settings. The priority order of
485 the various configuration files is as follows (highest first):
486 <ol>
487 <li>Environment variables</li>
488 <li><path>/etc/make.conf</path>, for your use</li>
489 <li><path>/etc/make.profile/make.defaults</path>, for profile-specific defaults</li>

507 <title>When updating a package using <c>emerge</c> or <c>ebuild</c>, how do I avoid
508 clobbering my config files?</title>
509 <body><p>
510 Portage now includes config file management support by default. Type
511 <c>emerge --help config</c> for more details. The (overly) simple answer is that if
512 a package installs <path>foo</path> somewhere under <path>/etc</path>, and
513 another <path>foo</path> already exists there, then the new <path>foo</path> will
514 instead be renamed to <path>._cfgxxxx_foo</path> in that directory. A useful
515 tool for examining and updating any protected config files is <c>etc-update</c>,
516 which is now part of Portage.
