Product Overview

Funtoo Linux is a variant of Gentoo Linux created by Daniel Robbins, the creator of Gentoo Linux. This image is FREE to use and supported by a true Open Source community.

This Amazon EC2 image is optimized for Amazon EC2 instances running on AMD EPYC processors. These instance types end in "a", such as m5a.large and m5a.xlarge.

The CPU instruction set provided by AMD EPYC processors (AMD Zen Architecture AES, AVX, AVX2, F16C, FMA3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions among others) is fully utilized by all binaries.

By using this AMI, you will be able to take advantage of the full Gentoo software ecosystem of over 10,000 free software packages while ensuring that your software stack is running with the best possible performance on AMD EPYC-based instances. Please check out our optimized builds for other instance types, coming soon.

An up-to-date Debian 4.9.130 LTS kernel is provided for production use with all necessary Spectre and Meltdown mitigations. The underlying root filesystem will auto-resize to the size of your underlying EBS volume as part of its initial boot process.

To use this EC2 image, ssh in as ec2-user@IP, at which point you can "sudo su" for root access. Type "ego sync" as root to download Funtoo's meta-repository, at which point you can use "emerge" like in Gentoo to emerge your favorite software.
