USE flags

  • caps - Use Linux capabilities library to control privilege
  • debug - Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces see
  • doc - Add extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
  • filecaps - Use Linux file capabilities to control privilege rather than set*id (this is orthogonal to USE=caps which uses capabilities at runtime e.g. libcap)
  • hal - Enable Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) support (WARNING: Try to avoid this. Deprecated method of accessing hardware.)
  • pam - Add support for PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) - DANGEROUS to arbitrarily flip
  • selinux - !!internal use only!! Security Enhanced Linux support, this must be set by the selinux profile or breakage will occur
  • ssh-agent - Use GNOME Keyring to unlock SSH keys. Recommended unless you are using ECDSA or Ed25519 keys.
  • test - Enable dependencies and/or preparations necessary to run tests (usually controlled by FEATURES=test but can be toggled independently)
