Funtoo Linux is a meta-distribution, which means it is built (fully automatically) with the functionality and optimizations that ''you'' want, not what some distro maintainer thought was best for you. Funtoo Linux packages are installed directly from source code, thanks to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portage_(software) Portage ports system], inspired by the FreeBSD ports system, written in Python and with full advanced package management functionality.
+
 
+
''Benefits for desktops'': leaner, optimized, faster system. ''Additional benefits for servers'': enable only what you actually need to reduce attack surface, thus improving security.
+
 
+
We use [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software) Git] for all our development, and we also use Git to deliver our ports tree to you.
+
 
+
In contrast to Gentoo Linux, we offer a number of innovations, including our extensive use of git, [[Funtoo 1.0 Profile|our profile system]], [[Package:Boot-Update|boot-update]] boot management tool, our incredibly flexible [[Funtoo Linux Networking|template-based networking scripts]], [[Metro Quick Start Tutorial|Metro]] distribution build system, support of Debian, RHEL and other kernels, [[Creating_Python-related_Ebuilds|enhanced Python support]], Portage mini-manifests, user-centric distribution model, and a large number of community infrastructure improvements.

Python Updater Deprecation

Python-updater is no longer part of Funtoo Linux.

By Oleg / December 6, 2014

As some users have noticed, the python-updater package, a tool for scanning and rebuilding python packages after major Python version updates is now removed. As of Nov 28, python-updater is no longer required. After merging new version of python ebuilds, the following steps are required:

Portage rebuild

# emerge --oneshot sys-apps/portage

This ensures that unconditional dependencies are properly installed.

Python Variables

In Funtoo Linux, PYTHON variables are set automatically in profile. In case PYTHON_* variables are manually set in /etc/portage/make.conf , such as PYTHON_ABIS="2.7 3.3", and/or /etc/portage/package.use, such as app-category/pkgname python_abis_3.3 , then change them accordingly to a version you which you upgraded. Example: PYTHON_ABIS="2.7 3.4", python_abis_3.4. This requires updating Portage again:

# emerge --nodeps --oneshot sys-apps/portage

This will rebuild portage independently of package dependencies, i.e if packages with old sys-apps/portage[python_abis_3.3] dependencies still present.

Changing the Python Active Version

This can be achieved by using eselect.

# eselect python --python3 python3.4

This command sets python 3 interpreter to version 3.4. Choose the one you upgrade to.

World update

Update your world.

# emerge --update --deep --newuse @world
