Emerge Status


Is there a way to view the status of individual packages in an emerge? Thanks.

Sure if it is one that you have emerged before. You can do this:

Code:
genlop -c
If it is new, there is really no way that I know of to do this. Oh, emerge genlop for that.

Hope that helps.

what does 'view status of individual packages' mean?
to view individual search results you can 'emerge gentoolkit', update database with 'eupdatedb' (needs to be updated every time you use 'emerge --sync') and type regular expression in esearch string like 'esearch ^gob$' or 'esearch -S ^gob$'. it's also faster than default 'emerge -s'/'emerge -S' due to indexing.

What I mean (yeah, what I was saying wasn't all that clear), is that while I'm emergina an individual package, is there a way to tell how far (percentage wise or whatever) I am through the emerge.

If you use x11 terminal with title configured to be able to change with programs run on it, then you can see number of packages 'left to merge/merged' in it. Also you can 'tail -f /var/log/emerge.log' before (or while) emerge and it'll show you the same results. I think there's no way to watch the progress of configuration/compilation/installation processes...
