Documentation

Congratulations! You now have a working Gentoo system. But where to go from here? What are your options now? What to explore first? Gentoo provides their users with lots of possibilities, and therefor lots of documented (and less documented) features.

You should definately take a look at our Portage User Guide which explains how to keep your software up to date, and how to install more software. If you want to know everything about Portage (but you lack the confidence to read the sourcecode :) you should read the Portage Manual which is a very extensive look at Portage and Portage Internals.

If you want to know more about how USE interacts, read the USE Howto which introduces USE flags to you and helps you decide what USE flags you need.

If you are interested in optimizing your system for desktop-use, or you want to learn how to configure your system to be a full working desktop system, consult our extensive Desktop Configuration Guide.

For a full listing of all our available documentation check out our Documentation Resources page.

Gentoo Online

You are ofcourse always welcome on our Gentoo Forums or on one of our many Gentoo IRC channels.

We also have several mailinglists open to all our users. Information on how to join is contained in that page.

We'll shut up now and let you enjoy your installation :)
