I need help making the make.conf for my gentoo box can some one help me to show me how to config it.

In an initial install of Gentoo (at least from Stage3), you get two default make.conf files, one is called make.conf and the other is make.conf.example .

In the default make.conf file, it gives very little options, the CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS, USE, etc. While the example one gives a great more detail. What I usually do is i copy the make.conf.example file to make.conf and edit that one. Read down there the file, it is well documented, and if there is anything you need clarification on, reply with the question.

With regards to USE variables, you can find a list in /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc .

To ask for help with your make.conf file is a pretty broad question.

When i get home, i will past my make.conf file as an example.
