Welcome to Gentoo, a highly flexible, source-based Linux distribution.

Distribution kernel for Gentoo (Sep 15, 2020)

Larry with Tux as cowboy

The Gentoo Distribution Kernel project is excited to announce that our new Linux Kernel packages are ready for a wide audience! The project aims to create a better Linux Kernel maintenance experience by providing ebuilds that can be used to configure, compile, and install a kernel entirely through the package manager as well as prebuilt binary kernels. We are currently shipping three kernel packages:

All the packages install the kernel as part of the package installation process — just like the rest of your system! More information can be found in the Gentoo Handbook and on the Distribution Kernel project page. Happy hacking!

Our packages.gentoo.org site has recently received major feature upgrades thanks to the continued efforts of Gentoo developer Max Magorsch (arzano). Highlights include:

Additionally, an experimental command-line client for packages.gentoo.org named “pgo” is in preparation, specifically also for our users with accesssibility needs.
