The system set, also referred to as @system in Portage development, contains the software packages required for a standard Gentoo Linux installation to run properly.

The system packages are defined by the Gentoo profiles (through the packages files). An end-user can easily see which packages are seen as part of the system set by running the following emerge command:

user $emerge --pretend @system
