Hinzufügen eines Benutzers für den täglichen Gebrauch

Arbeiten als root in einem Unix/Linux System ist gefährlich und sollte, wenn immer möglich, vermieden werden. Wir empfehlen daher nachdrücklich das Einrichten eines Benutzers für die täglichen Aufgaben.

Die Gruppen, denen ein Benutzer angehört, definieren, welche Aktivitäten der User ausführen kann. Die folgende Tabelle listet die wichtigsten Gruppen, die Sie vermutlich benutzen wollen:

Group Description
audio Be able to access the audio devices.
cdrom Be able to directly access optical devices.
floppy Be able to directly access floppy devices.
games Be able to play games.
portage Be able to access portage restricted resources.
usb Be able to access USB devices.
video Be able to access video capturing hardware and doing hardware acceleration.
wheel Be able to use su.

For instance, to create a user called larry who is member of the wheel, users, and audio groups, log in as root first (only root can create users) and run useradd:

Password: (Ihr root-Passwort)
root #useradd -m -G users,wheel,audio -s /bin/bash larry
root #passwd larry
Password: (Enter the password for larry)
Re-enter password: (Re-enter the password to verify)

If a user ever needs to perform some task as root, they can use su - to temporarily receive root privileges. Another way is to use the sudo package which is, if correctly configured, very secure.

Aufräumen der Festplatte

Entfernen der Tarballs

With the Gentoo installation finished and the system rebooted, if everything has gone well, we can now remove the downloaded stage3 tarball from the hard disk. Remember that they were downloaded to the / directory.

root #rm /stage3-*.tar.bz2*

Wie geht es weiter?


Gratulation! Sie haben jetzt ein funktionierendes Gentoo-System. Aber wie geht es nun weiter? Welche Möglichkeiten bieten sich? Gentoo bietet seinen Nutzern viele Optionen und daher auch viele dokumentierte (und weniger gut dokumentierte) Eigenschaften.

Definitely take a look at the next part of the Gentoo Handbook entitled Working with Gentoo which explains how to keep the software up to date, install additional software packages, details on USE flags, the OpenRC init system, etc.

Apart from the handbook, readers should also feel encouraged to explore other corners of the Gentoo wiki to find additional, community-provided documentation. The Gentoo wiki team also offers a Documentation topic overview which lists a selection of wiki articles by category. For instance, it refers to the localization guide to make a system feel more at home (particularly useful for users who speak English as a second language).

Gentoo Online

Everyone is of course always welcome on our Gentoo forums or on one of our Gentoo IRC channels.

We also have several mailing lists open to our users.

Enjoy Gentoo!
