(Introductory paragraph goes here. Describe the concepts/package set/tools/utilities/etc. here. Put the description sentence in this template: DESCRIPTION so it can be used on other pages.)

Available software and articles

Here are some <category> packages available in Gentoo:

Name Package Homepage Description
[[Utility1]] app-software/utility1 https://homepage/url/ This is a short summary of the what the Utility1 does well, and perhaps what it does not do well. It is fine to mention what kind of user may be interested in this utility and when it should be used.
[[Utility2]] app-software/utility2 https://homepage/url/ id.


(Explain how to switch between the different kinds of software/utilities/etc. in this section. See the Shell article for an example.)


(Optional section. Add troubleshooting steps for common issues in this section. Separate issues by best describing the error with a new section name. Remove if no common troubleshooting issues are known by the author, another contributor may add it back in later.)

Issue 1

When X happens, Y is how to fix it.

See also

(Optional section. Link to related Gentoo Wiki articles using bullet points for each link in this section; each link should be local to the Wiki.)

  • {{See also|Article_name}} (This should pull in the text from the tag in the referenced article. If there is no it is always good to add one.)

External resources

(Optional section. Link to external resources (outside the Wiki) using bullet points in this section. It is common to use full sentences that are links here.)


(Optional section. Remove this section if "[1]" references are not used. This section is used to cite factual information. This information is found outside the Gentoo Wiki and used to back up truth claims, the actual references themselves are littered throughout the main article using the "[2]" tags. Don't forget the {{reflist}} tag, which should be the only content of this section.)

  1. ref1
  2. ref2

(Category links are listed at the bottom of the article. They effectively end up in the last section of the article, whatever that may be. Do not use a section heading like "Categories". While all software articles could appear in Category:Software, use one of its subcategories whenever possible.)
