Can someone point me in the right direction to a doc with all the possible options or give me some examples of their make.conf file?

I'm running corei7.

Ive recently come back to gentoo and previously stumbled on a make.conf stripping the outputs from the console and making emerge look nice.

I would also like to see how i can optimize/improve my machine.

slugggerzzz,

Welcome back!
We knew you would come back but we were not sure when.

Code:
man make.conf

If you type:
Code:
emerge --info

You get all the options you are running in, and with your make.conf when you emerge packages.

And if you type:
Code:
man make.conf

You can see how tat options works and how to change them, but the most important ones for me are MAKEOPTS and VIDEO_CARD, MAKEOPT, should be the number of your processor's cores + 1 and if you decide to modify VIDEO_CARD you might have to change some values in your kernel configuration and install the firmwares you need for your graphic card, drivers would be installed with:
Code:
emerge --update --deep --with-bdeps=y --newuse @world
emerge --depclean
revdep-rebuild


Here are the most usefull links to "play" with your kernel configurations:

http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Kernel/Gentoo_Kernel_Configuration_Guide
http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Kernel/Configuration
http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Kernel/Overview

But my advice would be: try to generate an automatic kernel with lot of useless kernel's options and then try to customize it by droping all the things you dont need one by one and seeing if it still works at each time. Remember that you may save different kernel profiles (when you end configuring it at make menuconfig) just to be safer.

Hope this helps.
