Subject: [gentoo-user] detailed information about USE flags?
Date: Mon, 18 Sep 2006 05:01:33
1 I finally rebuilt my system, after nearly three months. Have
2 installed gentoo using the minimal install CD. It went easy, with a
3 fast connection. Much easier for me than trying to do the LiveCD
4 install.
6 Now, I need to set USE flags, and I want to do so with care. I
7 understand the concept, but I have to admit that I have never had
8 enough information at my disposal to choose USE flags even half
9 cluefully. I have seen some USE editors, but even they do not give
10 very much useful information about USE flags. I don't want to have to
11 do emerge --newuse yadayada very often...
13 Can someone point me to more information on USE flags, or do I have to
14 week through a plethora of mailing list and forum posts, and even then
15 have no clue?
17 Thanks for any help.

25 must share it with other people who like it.
