Pentoo - Penetration Testing Distro

Pentoo is a security-focused livecd based on Gentoo
It's basically a gentoo install with lots of customized tools, customized kernel, and much more. Here is a non-exhaustive list of the features currently included :
Kernel with lzma and aufs patches
Wifi stack 2.6.32_rc7
Module loading support ala slax
Changes saving on usb stick
Enlightenment DR17 WM
Cuda/OPENCL cracking support with development tools
System updates if you got it finally installed

Put simply, Pentoo is Gentoo with the pentoo overlay. This overlay is available in layman so all you have to do is layman -L and layman -a pentoo.
We have a pentoo meta ebuild in progress, which will install all the pentoo tools based on USE flags.
