USE flags

  • debug - Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces see https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Quality_Assurance/Backtraces
  • elibc_glibc - ELIBC setting for systems that use the GNU C library
  • ipv6 - Add support for IP version 6

  • make-symlinks - Create all the appropriate symlinks in /bin and /sbin.
  • math - Enable math support in gawk (requires libm)
  • mdev - Create the appropriate symlink in /sbin and install mdev.conf and support files
  • pam - Add support for PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) - DANGEROUS to arbitrarily flip
  • savedconfig - Use this to restore your config from /etc/portage/savedconfig ${CATEGORY}/${PN}. Make sure your USE flags allow for appropriate dependencies
  • selinux - !!internal use only!! Security Enhanced Linux support, this must be set by the selinux profile or breakage will occur
  • sep-usr - Support a separate /usr without needing an initramfs by booting with init=/ginit
  • static - Make the system rescue shell (/bin/bb) static so you can recover even when glibc is broken
  • syslog - Enable support for syslog
