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
  • minimal - Control dependencies on legacy apps (xterm, twm, ...). Safe to enable if you use a modern desktop environment.
  • pam - Add support for PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) - DANGEROUS to arbitrarily flip
  • systemd - Enable use of systemd-specific libraries and features like socket activation or session tracking
  • twm - Control dependencies on legacy apps (xterm, twm, ...). Safe to disable if you use a modern desktop environment.
