USE flags

  • abi_mips_n32 - 64-bit (32-bit pointer) libraries
  • abi_mips_n64 - 64-bit libraries
  • abi_mips_o32 - 32-bit libraries
  • abi_ppc_32 - 32-bit (ppc) libraries
  • abi_ppc_64 - 64-bit (ppc64) libraries
  • abi_s390_32 - 32-bit (s390) libraries
  • abi_s390_64 - 64-bit (s390x) libraries
  • abi_x86_32 - 32-bit (x86) libraries
  • abi_x86_64 - 64-bit (amd64) libraries
  • abi_x86_x32 - x32 ABI libraries
  • dbus - Enable dependencies required by glib libraries using dbus service to manage settings saving
  • debug - Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces see https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Quality_Assurance/Backtraces
  • doc - Add extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
  • fam - Enable FAM (File Alteration Monitor) support
  • hardened - Activate default security enhancements for toolchain (gcc, glibc, binutils)
  • kernel_linux - KERNEL setting for system using the Linux kernel
  • mime - Pull in shared MIME database that many glib-based applications require at runtime to detect or open files. Warning: do not disable this flag unless installing on a headless server.
  • python_single_target_python2_7 - Build for Python 2.7 only
  • python_single_target_python3_5 - Build for Python 3.5 only
  • python_single_target_python3_6 - Build for Python 3.6 only
  • python_single_target_python3_7 - Build for Python 3.7 only
  • python_targets_python2_5 - Build with Python 2.5
  • python_targets_python2_6 - Build with Python 2.6 (removed)
  • python_targets_python2_7 - Build with Python 2.7
  • python_targets_python3_5 - Build with Python 3.5
  • python_targets_python3_6 - Build with Python 3.6
  • python_targets_python3_7 - Build with Python 3.7
  • selinux - !!internal use only!! Security Enhanced Linux support, this must be set by the selinux profile or breakage will occur
  • static-libs - Build static versions of dynamic libraries as well
  • systemtap - Build support for profiling and tracing using dev-util/systemtap
  • test - Enable dependencies and/or preparations necessary to run tests (usually controlled by FEATURES=test but can be toggled independently)
  • utils - Install gtester-report utility to generate test report files for your software; build gresource utility with ELF support.
  • xattr - Add support for extended attributes (filesystem-stored metadata)
