Hello,
Thanks for your reply. Googling the gentoo docs and looking in
/etc/make.conf and /usr/share/portage/config/make.conf-example i've
come up with the following variables. Will this get me the
post-installation messages?
Thanks.
Dave.

/etc/make.conf:
PORTAGE_ELOG_CLASSES="info log warn error"
PORTAGE_ELOG_SYSTEM="save_summary"
