Goal

The goal of the Gentoo Wiki is to become the best Linux-related resource on the web. This goal is impossible without contributions from the Gentoo community. Using MediaWiki software, the Gentoo community can now assist in improving documentation for Gentoo as quickly and easily as clicking the "Edit" button.

Happy improvements!

(Presently viewed in "grub-install --target=x86 64-efi" in the bootloader section of the AMD64 Handbook.)
    • Presently worked around by creating a new text Property...

FAQs

  • Account renames - In the event that you would like your account name to be renamed, please do NOT create a new account for the desired name. Please ask someone with an @ symbol next to their IRC nickname in #gentoo-wiki to rename your existing account. Creating an account with the new name creates problems for wiki admins.

Participation

As with all official Gentoo projects: community participation not only welcome, but highly encouraged. Contact maffblaster on #gentoo-wiki for a list of current things to do. In short, here are a few things that need immediate attention:

  • Open discussions - Help close out open discussions (especially anything open in the Handbook namespace).
  • Todo list - Review things that need work.
  • Translate - Make the Gentoo documentation available in your native language. Become a translator.
