1.  Documentation

Congratulations! You now have a working Gentoo system. But where to go from here? What are your options now? What to explore first? Gentoo provides its users with lots of possibilities, and therefore lots of documented (and less documented) features.

You should definitely take a look at the next part of the Gentoo Handbook entitled (Working with Gentoo) which explains how to keep your software up to date, how to install more software, what USE flags are, how the Gentoo Init system works, etc.

If you are interested in optimizing your system for desktop use, or you want to learn how to configure your system to be a full working desktop system, consult our extensive Gentoo Desktop Documentation Resources. Besides, you might want to use our localization guide to make your system feel more at home.

We also have a Gentoo Security Handbook which is worth reading.

For a full listing of all our available documentation check out our Documentation Resources page.

1.  Gentoo Online

You are of course always welcome on our Gentoo Forums or on one of our many Gentoo IRC channels.

We also have several mailinglists open to all our users. Information on how to join is contained in that page.

We'll shut up now and let you enjoy your installation :)

1.  Gentoo Changes since 2006.1

Changes?

Gentoo is a fast-moving target. The following sections describe important changes that affect a Gentoo installation. We only list those that have anything in common with the installation, not with package changes that did not occur during the installation.

There have been no significant changes since.
