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>

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/index.xml?catid=desktop">Gentoo Desktop
37 Documentation Resources</uri>.

73 <title>Changes?</title>

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>

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>

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>.
