5 This is one place where those quake-like terminals comes in handy. I
6 use tilda, for KDE there's yakuake. Basically they allow you to press
7 a single key and a terminal pops down from the top of the screen. I
8 usually have one of those running all the time: I have a tab or two
9 devote to emerges, another tab handling an SSH -X session to some
10 other computer, and maybe a tab or two devoted to some command line
11 tasks. Press a single key and it all goes out of sight.
13 You'll probably want to run the compile in one screen session, then
14 tail -f the emerge log in one of the tabs.
