The Gentoo Handbook is an effort to centralize documentation into a coherent handbook.

This handbook contains the installation instructions for Internet-based installation approaches and parts about hxndbook with Ggentoo and Portage. An architecture is a family of CPUs processors who support the same instructions.

But many other architectures exist, such as sparchentoo the PowerPC familymipsarmetc A distribution as versatile as Gentoo supports many architectures. For that reason, you’ll find that our Gentoo Handbooks are offered for many of the supported architectures. However, that might lead to some confusion as not all users are aware of the differences. Some are only aware of the CPU type or name that their system is a part of like i or Intel Core i7. Below you will find a quick summary of the supported architectures and the abbreviation used in Gentoo.

However, most people that do not know the architecture of their system are mostly interested in x86 or amd The list below gives a high-level overview of the architectures supported by various Gentoo Linux projects.


It is important to choose the correct architecture before proceeding with the associated Installation section of a Handbook. Be sure to verify the CPU’s architecture before moving onward. A note amx64 new Gentoo users: The handbook maintainers have opted to write on a per-architecture level using Gentoo’s default init system OpenRC and basic partitioning schemes.

The point of the Handbook is to get a bare-bones Gentoo system up and running, not to cover all possible installation paths irregular partitioning, init systems, kernel configuration, system management utilities, etc.

Concepts such as advanced partitioning, non-generic kernel configuration, and alternate init systems are explained other areas around the wiki in publicly modifiable namespace hint: We ask our readers to search wiki and discover what is already available before requesting a new section or addition to be added to the Handbook.

If you believe a new generic section is necessary to add to the Handbook, then propose a request by following the instructions below. Instructions on using a stage1 or stage2 tarball are now available in the Gentoo FAQ.

A stage3 installation is the only supported method of installation. Suggestions, comments, or ideas on how to make the Handbook better can be reported to the Handbook project via the Discussion page of the respective article. Documentation is made for the community, so community feedback is well appreciated.


Be aware that most decisions made while developing documentation are based on a consensus-model. It is impossible to write or structure documentation in such a way that renders every reader happy.

Those who open discussions with the goal of improving the Handbook must be able to accept a “No” as an answer. Typically “No” is used when we believe the current implementation is beneficial for the majority of readers. Something akd64 to what is seen in the following example will suffice:.
