Consider Enabling Portage ELogging. Taken from the Gentoo Wiki: Portage Log. Inside /etc/portage/make.conf: Set PORT_LOGDIR, i.e. PORT_LOGDIR="/var/log/portage" Set PORTAGE_ELOG_CLASSES, i.e. PORTAGE_ELOG_CLASSES="log warn error" Set PORTAGE_ELOG_SYSTEM, i.e. PORTAGE_ELOG_SYSTEM="save" You can also set Option 3 differently depending on your ...

There are no built-in function to colourize logs, but there's Vim with its messages highlighter that makes logs easier to read and also highlights lines with certain keywords ("error", "failed", etc.) in red. Try :setf messages. ccze - A robust log colorizer — a replacement for colorize that apparently has lots of ways to customize it colourization ...

I'm not sure what are you trying to achieve, but if your function will somehow interact with portage then perhaps you could use its color definition. From man 5 color.map: VARIABLES NORMAL = "normal" Defines color used for some words occuring in other contexts than those below. BAD = "red" ...

Not sure about kterm, but probably it is xterm escape compatible - most are. If so, then you'll want to put something in your prompt that sets the window title: 3.1 xterm escape sequences Window and icon titles may be changed in a running xterm by using XTerm escape sequences. The following sequences are useful in this respect: ESC]0;stringBEL -- Set ...

Adding to Ikraav's answer: After using eix -tT, remove the comparison operators and the package version number. Your File can also be written as: dev-python/ipython ~amd64 # and many lines later package-cat/package ~arch This will guarantee that you will always get the testing versions of dev-python/ipython and package-cat/package

Do you use Synergy? I also had this problem (just the hover issue) and found that it was caused by that. Sopping synergy fixes this. I'll try updating it because I need it...

You might want to look at Sabayon Linux, a child of Gentoo. It uses pre-compiled packages, a.k.a binaries stored in repos, that are remote. What actually happens is that maintainers configure the package using predetermined USE Flags, and then compile the package with portage. Then using the Sabayon Binary Package Manager, Entropy, the maintainers upload ...

You can set the USE-flag for VIM using this commands: sudo echo ">=app-editors/vim-7.4.273 gpm" >> /etc/portage/package.use sudo emerge -av vim or you could set the gpm flag globally in /etc/portage/make.conf and ad it in the line USE USE="gpm <a bunch of other use flags>" and after this update the system with the new USE-flag sudo ...

TL;DR I have a different take on this as a Gentoo user. While I agree with peterph's approach of "Let the System Decide," I disagree when it comes to an ABI Update. An ABI Update is sometimes a major shift in behavior. In the case of GCC 4.7, the ABI Change was the adoption of the new C++11 Standard, which peterph also pointed out. Here is why I write ...
