Subject: [gentoo-user] Can emerge play a sound on either a successful/unsuccessful build?
Date: Mon, 14 Jul 2014 10:53:09
1 Hi all,
2 I have a laptop churning away in the loungeroom doing an "emerge -NuD
3 world" whilst I'm in my office, amongst other things composing this
4 email. If my world update fails, I won't know until I look at the screen
5 in the other room. Is there a way to get emerge to play a song depending
6 upon the status of the emerge build?
8 If memory serves, an email can be sent letting you know what's
9 happening, but a sound would be better. For example, on those days when
10 you kick off an emerge then start pottering around the house doing
11 stuff. All of a sudden Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" starts playing,
12 and you know the emerge has karked it....
14 Thoughts greatly appreciated,
16 Andrew
