core2_64 should be a good match for your Atom N450. Otherwise use generic_64.


-march=core2 will give you support for "64-bit extensions, MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3 and SSSE3 instruction set support" (see the list of -march options). According to Wikipedia that is a good fit for the Atom N450 (N450 on wikipedia).

Sorry, I missed reading about -march=atom. 



One option is to use the funtoo-current atom_64 stage3 but then set portage to only use funtoo-stable packages.


Follow the install guide and when you get to Configuring your System edit /etc/portage/make.conf so that ACCEPT_KEYWORDS is


(not "~amd64").


This should limit all future package installations to only those that are in the funtoo-stable branch. Of course the packages that come with the stage3 will still be funtoo-current until such time as they are updated to newer funtoo-stable versions.



A second option would be to build a funtoo-stable atom_64 stage3 using Metro
