Like most other folks, I usually do an emerge of "world" and switch to another screen while all that compiling and stuff is going on.

Every now and then, however, I observe that certain messages go whizzing by .. messages that are sometimes put in bold colors, presumably so that I'm supposed to read them. Presumably because they are important.

Yet... how on earth am I supposed to know that? Whoosh! They're gone!

When a configuration-file needs updating, portage tells me. But what about those messages, which I might not even know were there and have no means to see? Is there "a means to see?"

Have you tried redirecting stderr to a file?

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads.

See the two stickies in P&P: Log of emerge readable output produced somewhere? and Portage 2.1 Features. The former is about the old-style ways of logging it, the latter (and the end of the former as well) show how to do it with Portage 2.1.
