19     <p>
20     Congratulations! You now have a working Gentoo system. But where to go from
21     here? What are your options now? What to explore first? Gentoo provides its
22     users with lots of possibilities, and therefore lots of documented (and less
23     documented) features.
24     </p>
25    
26     <p>
27     You should definitely take a look at the next part of the Gentoo Handbook
28     entitled <uri link="?part=2&amp;chap=0">Working with Gentoo</uri> which explains
29     how to keep your software up to date, how to install more software, what USE
30     flags are, how the Gentoo Init system works, etc.
31     </p>
32    
33     <p>
34     If you are interested in optimizing your system for desktop-use, or you want to
35     learn how to configure your system to be a full working desktop system, consult
36     our extensive <uri link="/doc/en/desktop.xml">Gentoo Desktop Documentation
37     Resources</uri>.
38     </p>
39

42     link="/doc/en/index.xml">Documentation Resources</uri> page.

72     <subsection>
73     <title>Changes?</title>
74     <body>
75    
76     <p>
77     Gentoo is a fast-moving target. The following sections describe important
78     changes that affect a Gentoo installation. We only list those that have anything
79     in common with the installation, not with package changes that did not occur
80     during the installation.
81     </p>
82    
83     <p>
84     The following changes need to happen right after having updated your system (and
85     before rebooting).

91     <title>Hotplug and Coldplug</title>
92     <body>
93    
94     <p>
95     The functionality of <c>hotplug</c>, used by <c>genkernel</c> users, has been
96     split over two packages: <c>coldplug</c> and <c>hotplug</c>. Users of
97     <c>hotplug</c> need to install <c>coldplug</c> as well, remove <c>hotplug</c>
98     from the default runlevel, and replace it with <c>coldplug</c>:
99     </p>
100    
101     <pre caption="Coldplug/Hotplug changes">
102     # <i>emerge coldplug</i>
103     # <i>rc-update del hotplug default</i>
104     # <i>rc-update add coldplug default</i>
105     </pre>

115     <title>Removed Kernel Trees</title>
116     <body>
117    
118     <p>
119     In order to keep our kernel packages manageable, we have removed some
120     of the older and unmaintained packages from the tree. All information about the
121     changes are available in the <uri
122     link="/news/20041113-kernels.xml">Kernel Change Announcement</uri>.
