Hi~ all. I just moved from arch linux to gentoo because of package manager.

Anyway, I want to make "notification" which prints out a message to console and terminal like freebsd.
Is it possible to get message from system when other user log-on the system?
I found solution about this, but there are no "wall" and "message" commands on gentoo linux. How can I make it in Gentoo Linux?

Actually, they do exist. It is just that they are not installed by default. you want to add an entry in /etc/portage/package.use like this
Code:
sys-apps/util-linux tty-helpers
then emerge -1 util-linux and you'll get the commands.

chaoxifer ...

zsh has a builtin called 'watch' that provides such notifications (see here).

Code:
# echo $SHELL
/bin/zsh
# watch=( khayyam )
# log
khayyam has logged on 1 from .
# chvt 2
login: khayyam
password:
# echo foo >/dev/null
khayyam has logged on 2 from .

best ... khay

Thanks for reply.

I used to use zsh, but I didn't know about this.

zsh's 'watch' is more convenient, so I'll try it :)

Thank you 'The Doctor', 'khayyam'.
