Restarting a halted process after boot?
Hi there, i know it may be a silly question but having been amazed at what linux can do i thought i'd ask if the function is available. I'm currently running a very long compilation of an emerge in gentoo. I was wondering if there was a way of freezing the process (i think you can halt it using ctrl+z) and then being able to shutdown the computer so that on reboot at a later time, i can get back to what the command was doing and finish off from where the compile was halted? Does anyone know if this is possible or am I just dreaming? I am asking as I need to use my webcam in windows as the videoquality and speed is far slower in linux amsn than in windows hence during the evenings I'd like to log into my windows to chat but not to lose all of the compilation that the computer has done currently. Ive heard of a program called CryoPID but dont know if anyone has good stories to tell about it.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
