Arch Specific Notes
This section provides a brief overview of various arch-specific issues. It is not complete, and it is not a substitute for discussing any problems with the relevant arch team.
Note: People who have worked with some other distributions may find Gentoo's views on architecture support slightly unfamiliar. We do not follow Debian's attempts to provide a standard set of packages at specific versions and install it onto every platform — rather, we simply attempt to provide whatever happens to work best in any situation.
