Emerge updating configuration files

These other package managers generally have the same features, but behave a bit differently.

Run it with --pretend first, to verify what is going to be removed clean -d distfiles will clean up your distfiles directory. emerge --searchdesc Wine directory: ~/Commands: wine - execute windows program winecfg - configure wine wineconsole cmd - open a windows console If the following error occurs: err:wineconsole: WCUSER_Set Font wrong font err:wineconsole: WINECON_Fatal Couldn't find a decent font, aborting Use export LANG=en_EN.

In this section, we describe how to install software on Gentoo and what Gentoo's Portage and Portage tree are.

Gentoo is shipped with a sane default for your USE variable.

This means that, unlike most operating systems (including other Linux distributions), Gentoo does not just place compiled files on your file system but actually fetches the source code for the software you need from the Internet, configures the compilation environment and builds the software before it finally moves the resulting build onto the file system.

Of course, Gentoo does support binary package installations, and this on two levels: The second level is a more advanced approach as Gentoo doesn't provide binary packages itself - you'll need to create and maintain a build environment yourself or use a third-party repository.

It is the interface to the user to install and uninstall software, upgrade the system, search through the available software and help with the configuration of the various software titles.

For Gentoo, the default package manager is called Portage.

Because with Gentoo, you build the software yourself, you have the opportunity to enable or disable these features based on your USE flags.

You can set your global USE flags inside Because of the vast amount of USE flags that Gentoo supports, it is not your job to know and understand every single one of them.

They are all compatible though, thanks to a standard approach to the packaging structure Gentoo uses.
