12. Where to go from here?

Content:

12.a. 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.

We also have an official Gentoo Wiki where additional, community-provided documentation can be found. The documentation team also offers a Documentation Overview.

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.

12.b. 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 mailing lists 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. :)
