# Build-time functionality
# ========================
#
# The USE variable is used to enable optional build-time functionality. For
# example, quite a few packages have optional X, gtk or GNOME functionality
# that can only be enabled or disabled at compile-time. Gentoo Linux has a
# very extensive set of USE variables described in our USE variable HOWTO at
# http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=2&chap=1
#
# The available list of use flags with descriptions is in your portage tree.
# Use 'less' to view them: --> less /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc <--
#
# 'ufed' is an ncurses/dialog interface available in portage to make handling
# useflags for you. 'emerge app-portage/ufed'
#
# Example:
#USE="X gtk gnome -alsa"
# Host and optimization settings
# ==============================
#
# For optimal performance, enable a CFLAGS setting appropriate for your CPU.
#
# Please note that if you experience strange issues with a package, it may be
# due to gcc's optimizations interacting in a strange way. Please test the
# package (and in some cases the libraries it uses) at default optimizations
# before reporting errors to developers.
#
# Please refer to the GCC manual for a list of possible values.
#
#CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe"
#
# If you set a CFLAGS above, then this line will set your default C++ flags to
# the same settings.
#CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
# Advanced Masking
# ================
#
# Gentoo is using a new masking system to allow for easier stability testing
# on packages. KEYWORDS are used in ebuilds to mask and unmask packages based
# on the platform they are set for. A special form has been added that
# indicates packages and revisions that are expected to work, but have not yet
# been approved for the stable set. '~arch' is a superset of 'arch' which
# includes the unstable, in testing, packages. Users of the 'x86' architecture
# would add '~x86' to ACCEPT_KEYWORDS to enable unstable/testing packages.
# '~ppc', '~sparc' are the unstable KEYWORDS for their respective platforms.
#
# Please note that this is not for development, alpha, beta, nor cvs release
# packages. "Broken" packages will not be added to testing and should not be
# requested to be added. Alternative routes are available to developers
# for experimental packages, and it is at their discretion to use them.
#
# DO NOT PUT ANYTHING BUT YOUR SPECIFIC ~ARCHITECTURE IN THE LIST.
# IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR ARCH, OR THE IMPLICATIONS, DO NOT MODIFY THIS.
#
#ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~arch"
# Portage Directories
# ===================
#
# Each of these settings controls an aspect of portage's storage and file
# system usage. If you change any of these, be sure it is available when
# you try to use portage. *** DO NOT INCLUDE A TRAILING "/" ***
#
# PORTAGE_TMPDIR is the location portage will use for compilations and
# temporary storage of data. This can get VERY large depending upon
# the application being installed.
#PORTAGE_TMPDIR=/var/tmp
#
# PORTDIR is the location of the portage tree. This is the repository
# for all profile information as well as all ebuilds. If you change
# this, you must update your /etc/make.profile symlink accordingly.
# ***Warning***
# Data stored inside PORTDIR is in peril of being overwritten or deleted by
# the emerge --sync command. The default value of PORTAGE_RSYNC_OPTS
# will protect the default locations of DISTDIR and PKGDIR, but users are
# warned that any other locations inside PORTDIR are not necessarily safe
# for data storage.
#PORTDIR=/usr/portage
#
# DISTDIR is where all of the source code tarballs will be placed for
# emerges. The source code is maintained here unless you delete
# it. The entire repository of tarballs for Gentoo is 9G. This is
# considerably more than any user will ever download. 2-3G is
# a large DISTDIR. Note that locations under /usr/portage are not
# necessarily safe for data storage. See the PORTDIR documentation
# for more information.
#DISTDIR=/usr/portage/distfiles
#
# PKGDIR is the location of binary packages that you can have created
# with '--buildpkg' or '-b' while emerging a package. This can get
# up to several hundred megs, or even a few gigs. Note that
# locations under /usr/portage are not necessarily safe for data
# storage. See the PORTDIR documentation for more information.
#PKGDIR=/usr/portage/packages
#
# PORT_LOGDIR is the location where portage will store all the logs it
# creates from each individual merge. They are stored as
# ${CATEGORY}:${PF}:YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS.log in the directory specified.
# If the direcory does not exist, it will be created automatically and
# group permissions will be applied to it. If the directory already
# exists, portage will not modify it's permissions.
#PORT_LOGDIR=""
#
# PORTDIR_OVERLAY is a directory where local ebuilds may be stored without
# concern that they will be deleted by rsync updates. Default is not
# defined.
#PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage
# Fetching files
# ==============
#
# If you need to set a proxy for wget or lukemftp, add the appropriate "export
# ftp_proxy=<proxy>" and "export http_proxy=<proxy>" lines to /etc/profile if
# all users on your system should use them.
#
# Portage uses wget by default. Here are some settings for some alternate
# downloaders -- note that you need to merge these programs first before they
# will be available.
#
# Default fetch command (5 tries, passive ftp for firewall compatibility)
#FETCHCOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -t 5 -T 60 --passive-ftp \${URI} -P \${DISTDIR}"
#RESUMECOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -c -t 5 -T 60 --passive-ftp \${URI} -P \${DISTDIR}"
#
# Using wget, ratelimiting downloads
#FETCHCOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -t 5 -T 60 --passive-ftp --limit-rate=200k \${URI} -P \${DISTDIR}"
#RESUMECOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -c -t 5 -T 60 --passive-ftp --limit-rate=200k \${URI} -P \${DISTDIR}"
#
# Lukemftp (BSD ftp):
#FETCHCOMMAND="/usr/bin/lukemftp -s -a -o \${DISTDIR}/\${FILE} \${URI}"
#RESUMECOMMAND="/usr/bin/lukemftp -s -a -R -o \${DISTDIR}/\${FILE} \${URI}"
#
# Portage uses GENTOO_MIRRORS to specify mirrors to use for source retrieval.
# The list is a space separated list which is read left to right. If you use
# another mirror we highly recommend leaving the default mirror at the end of
# the list so that portage will fall back to it if the files cannot be found
# on your specified mirror. We _HIGHLY_ recommend that you change this setting
# to a nearby mirror by merging and using the 'mirrorselect' tool.
#GENTOO_MIRRORS="<your_mirror_here> http://distfiles.gentoo.org http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/gentoo"
#
# Portage uses PORTAGE_BINHOST to specify mirrors for prebuilt-binary packages.
# The list is a single entry specifying the full address of the directory
# serving the tbz2's for your system. Running emerge with either '--getbinpkg'
# or '--getbinpkgonly' will cause portage to retrieve the metadata from all
# packages in the directory specified, and use that data to determine what will
# be downloaded and merged. '-g' or '-gK' are the recommend parameters. Please
# consult the man pages and 'emerge --help' for more information. For FTP, the
# default connection is passive -- If you require an active connection, affix
# an asterisk (*) to the end of the host:port string before the path.
#PORTAGE_BINHOST="http://grp.mirror.site/gentoo/grp/1.4/i686/athlon-xp/"
# This ftp connection is passive ftp.
#PORTAGE_BINHOST="ftp://login:pass@grp.mirror.site/pub/grp/i686/athlon-xp/"
# This ftp connection is active ftp.
#PORTAGE_BINHOST="ftp://login:pass@grp.mirror.site:21*/pub/grp/i686/athlon-xp/"
# Synchronizing Portage
# =====================
#
# Each of these settings affects how Gentoo synchronizes your Portage tree.
# Synchronization is handled by rsync and these settings allow some control
# over how it is done.
#
# SYNC is the server used by rsync to retrieve a localized rsync mirror
# rotation. This allows you to select servers that are geographically
# close to you, yet still distribute the load over a number of servers.
# Please do not single out specific rsync mirrors. Doing so places undue
# stress on particular mirrors. Instead you may use one of the following
# continent specific rotations:
#
# Default: "rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"
# North America: "rsync://rsync.namerica.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"
# South America: "rsync://rsync.samerica.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"
# Europe: "rsync://rsync.europe.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"
# Asia: "rsync://rsync.asia.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"
# Australia: "rsync://rsync.au.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"
#
# If you have multiple Gentoo boxes, it is probably a good idea to have only
# one of them sync from the rotations above. The other boxes can then rsync
# from the local rsync server, reducing the load on the mirrors.
# Instructions for setting up a local rsync server are available here:
# http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/rsync.xml
#
#SYNC="rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"
#
# PORTAGE_RSYNC_RETRIES sets the number of times portage will attempt to retrieve
# a current portage tree before it exits with an error. This allows
# for a more successful retrieval without user intervention most times.
#PORTAGE_RSYNC_RETRIES="3"
#
# PORTAGE_RSYNC_EXTRA_OPTS can be used to feed additional options to the rsync
# command used by `emerge --sync`. This will not change the default options
# which are set by PORTAGE_RSYNC_OPTS (don't change those unless you know
# exactly what you're doing).
#PORTAGE_RSYNC_EXTRA_OPTS=""
#
# Advanced Features
# =================
#
# EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS allows emerge to act as if certain options are
# specified on every run. Useful options include --ask, --verbose,
# --usepkg and many others. Options that are not useful, such as --help,
# are not filtered.
#EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS=""
#
# INSTALL_MASK allows certain files to not be installed into your file system.
# This is useful when you wish to filter out a certain set of files from
# ever being installed, such as INSTALL.gz or TODO.gz
#INSTALL_MASK=""
#
# MAKEOPTS provides extra options that may be passed to 'make' when a
# program is compiled. Presently the only use is for specifying
# the number of parallel makes (-j) to perform. The suggested number
# for parallel makes is CPUs+1.
#MAKEOPTS="-j2"
#
# PORTAGE_NICENESS provides a default increment to emerge's niceness level.
# Note: This is an increment. Running emerge in a niced environment will
# reduce it further. Default is unset.
#PORTAGE_NICENESS=3
#
# AUTOCLEAN enables portage to automatically clean out older or overlapping
# packages from the system after every successful merge. This is the
# same as running 'emerge -c' after every merge. Set with: "yes" or "no".
# This does not affect the unpacked source. See 'noclean' below.
#
# Warning: AUTOCLEAN="no" can cause serious problems due to overlapping
# packages. Do not use it unless absolutely necessary!
#AUTOCLEAN="yes"
#
# PORTAGE_TMPFS is a location where portage may create temporary files.
# If specified, portage will use this directory whenever possible
# for all rapid operations such as lockfiles and transient data.
# It is _highly_ recommended that this be a tmpfs or ramdisk. Do not
# set this to anything that does not give a significant performance
# enhancement and proper FS compliance for locks and read/write.
# /dev/shm is a glibc mandated tmpfs, and should be a reasonable
# setting for all linux kernel+glibc based systems.
#PORTAGE_TMPFS="/dev/shm"
#
# FEATURES are settings that affect the functionality of portage. Most of
# these settings are for developer use, but some are available to non-
# developers as well.
#
# 'assume-digests'
# when committing work to cvs with repoman(1), assume that all
# existing SRC_URI digests are correct. This feature also
# affects digest generation via ebuild(1) and emerge(1) (emerge
# generates digests only when the 'digest' feature is enabled).
# 'buildpkg' causes binary packages to be created of all packages that
# are being merged.
# 'ccache' enable support for the dev-util/ccache package, which can
# noticably decrease the time needed to remerge previously built
# packages.
# 'confcache' enable confcache support; speeds up autotool based configure
# calls
# 'collision-protect'
# prevents packages from overwriting files that are owned by
# another package or by no package at all.
# 'cvs' causes portage to enable all cvs features (commits, adds),
# and to apply all USE flags in SRC_URI for digests -- for
# developers only.
# 'digest' autogenerate digests for packages when running the emerge(1)
# command. If the 'assume-digests' feature is also enabled then
# existing SRC_URI digests will be reused whenever they are
# available.
# 'distcc' enables distcc support via CC.
# 'distlocks' enables distfiles locking using fcntl or hardlinks. This
# is enabled by default. Tools exist to help clean the locks
# after crashes: /usr/lib/portage/bin/clean_locks.
# 'fixpackages' allows portage to fix binary packages that are stored in
# PKGDIR. This can consume a lot of time. 'fixpackages' is
# also a script that can be run at any given time to force
# the same actions.
# 'gpg' enables basic verification of Manifest files using gpg.
# This features is UNDER DEVELOPMENT and reacts to features
# of strict and severe. Heavy use of gpg sigs is coming.
# 'keeptemp' prevents the clean phase from deleting the temp files ($T)
# from a merge.
# 'keepwork' prevents the clean phase from deleting the WORKDIR.
# 'test' causes ebuilds to perform testing phases if they are capable
# of it. Some packages support this automatically via makefiles.
# 'metadata-transfer'
# automatically perform a metadata transfer when `emerge --sync`
# is run.
# 'noauto' causes ebuild to perform only the action requested and
# not any other required actions like clean or unpack -- for
# debugging purposes only.
# 'noclean' prevents portage from removing the source and temporary files
# after a merge -- for debugging purposes only.
# 'nostrip' prevents the stripping of binaries.
# 'notitles' disables xterm titlebar updates (which contain status info).
# 'parallel-fetch'
# do fetching in parallel to compilation
# 'sandbox' enables sandboxing when running emerge and ebuild.
# 'strict' causes portage to react strongly to conditions that are
# potentially dangerous, like missing/incorrect Manifest files.
# 'stricter' causes portage to react strongly to conditions that may
# conflict with system security provisions (for example
# textrels, executable stacks).
# 'userfetch' when portage is run as root, drop privileges to
# portage:portage during the fetching of package sources.
# 'userpriv' allows portage to drop root privileges while it is compiling,
# as a security measure. As a side effect this can remove
# sandbox access violations for users.
# 'usersandbox' enables sandboxing while portage is running under userpriv.
#FEATURES="sandbox buildpkg ccache distcc userpriv usersandbox notitles noclean noauto cvs keeptemp keepwork"
#FEATURES="sandbox ccache distcc distlocks"
# CCACHE_SIZE and CCACHE_DIR are used to control the behavior of ccache, and
# and are only used if "ccache" is in FEATURES.
#
# CCACHE_SIZE sets the space limitations for ccache. The default size is
# "2G", or 2 gigabytes. Units are specified with 'G', 'M', or 'K'.
#
#CCACHE_SIZE="512M"
#
# CCACHE_DIR sets the ccache path. If not specified, portage will default
# to "${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}/ccache".
#
# Note that to display ccache statistics outside of portage, you must
# remember to give the correct path to the cache.
#
# $ CCACHE_DIR=/var/tmp/ccache ccache -s
#
#CCACHE_DIR="${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}/ccache"
# DISTCC_DIR sets the temporary space used by distcc.
#DISTCC_DIR="${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}/.distcc"
# logging related variables:
# PORTAGE_ELOG_CLASSES: selects messages to be logged, possible values are:
# info, warn, error, log, qa
# Warning: commenting this will disable elog
PORTAGE_ELOG_CLASSES="warn error log"
# PORTAGE_ELOG_SYSTEM: selects the module(s) to process the log messages. Modules
# included in portage are (empty means logging is disabled):
# save (saves one log per package in $PORT_LOGDIR/elog,
# /var/log/portage/elog if $PORT_LOGDIR is unset)
# custom (passes all messages to $PORTAGE_ELOG_COMMAND)
# syslog (sends all messages to syslog)
# mail (send all messages to the mailserver defined
# in $PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILURI)
# save_summary (like "save" but merges all messages
# in $PORT_LOGDIR/elog/summary.log,
# /var/log/portage/elog/summary.log if
# $PORT_LOGDIR is unset)
# mail_summary (like "mail" but sends all messages in
# a single mail when emerge exits)
# To use elog you should enable at least one module
#PORTAGE_ELOG_SYSTEM="save mail"
# PORTAGE_ELOG_COMMAND: only used with the "custom" logging module. Specifies a command
# to process log messages. Two variables are expanded:
# ${PACKAGE} - expands to the cpv entry of the processed
# package (see $PVR in ebuild(5))
# ${LOGFILE} - absolute path to the logfile
# Both variables have to be quoted with single quotes
#PORTAGE_ELOG_COMMAND="/path/to/logprocessor -p '\${PACKAGE}' -f '\${LOGFILE}'"
# PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILURI: this variable holds all important settings for the mail
# module. In most cases listing the recipient address and
# the receiving mailserver should be sufficient, but you can
# also use advanced settings like authentication or TLS. The
# full syntax is:
# address [[user:passwd@]mailserver[:port]]
# where
# address: recipient address
# user: username for smtp auth (defaults to none)
# passwd: password for smtp auth (defaults to none)
# mailserver: smtp server that should be used to deliver the mail (defaults to localhost)
# alternatively this can also be a the path to a sendmail binary if you don't want to use smtp
# port: port to use on the given smtp server (defaults to 25, values > 100000 indicate that starttls should be used on (port-100000))
# Examples:
#PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILURI="root@localhost localhost" (this is also the default setting)
#PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILURI="user@some.domain mail.some.domain" (sends mails to user@some.domain using the mailserver mail.some.domain)
#PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILURI="user@some.domain user:secret@mail.some.domain:100465" (this is left uncommented as a reader exercise ;)
# PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILFROM: you can set the from-address of logmails with this variable,
# if unset mails are sent by "portage" (this default may fail
# in some environments).
#PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILFROM="portage@some.domain"
# PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILSUBJECT: template string to be used as subject for logmails. The following
# variables are expanded:
# ${PACKAGE} - see description of PORTAGE_ELOG_COMMAND
# ${HOST} - FQDN of the host portage is running on
#PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILSUBJECT="package \${PACKAGE} merged on \${HOST} with notice"
