USE flags

  • abi_mips_n32 - 64-bit (32-bit pointer) libraries
  • abi_mips_n64 - 64-bit libraries
  • abi_mips_o32 - 32-bit libraries
  • abi_ppc_32 - 32-bit (ppc) libraries
  • abi_ppc_64 - 64-bit (ppc64) libraries
  • abi_riscv_lp64 - 64-bit (rv64) soft-float libraries
  • abi_riscv_lp64d - 64-bit (rv64) double hard-float libraries
  • abi_s390_32 - 32-bit (s390) libraries
  • abi_s390_64 - 64-bit (s390x) libraries
  • abi_x86_32 - 32-bit (x86) libraries
  • abi_x86_64 - 64-bit (amd64) libraries
  • abi_x86_x32 - x32 ABI libraries
  • ada - Add bindings for the ADA programming language
  • cxx - Build support for C++ (bindings, extra libraries, code generation, ...)
  • 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
  • doc - Add extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
  • gpm - Add support for sys-libs/gpm (Console-based mouse driver)
  • minimal - Install a very minimal build (disables, for example, plugins, fonts, most drivers, non-critical features)
  • nocxx - Old flag -- USE=cxx from now on
  • profile - Add support for software performance analysis (will likely vary from ebuild to ebuild)
  • split-usr - Enable behavior to support maintaining /bin and /lib separately from /usr/bin and /usr/lib
  • static-libs - Build static versions of dynamic libraries as well
  • test - Enable dependencies and/or preparations necessary to run tests (usually controlled by FEATURES=test but can be toggled independently)
  • threads - Add threads support for various packages. Usually pthreads
  • tinfo - Build curses library (libncurses) sep from the low-level terminfo library (libtinfo) -- usually needed only for binary packages -- but it is binary compatible in either mode
  • trace - Enable test trace() support in ncurses calls
  • unicode - Add support for Unicode
