KGenlop 1.5

Gentoo emerge notifier
KGenlop is a set of scripts to popup a kdialog message about the currently compiling package(s). is the more advanced one. It uses the inotify API to watch emerge.log and inform you when something new happens.

It can be run from KDE autostart, or xinitrc or whatever, no need for cron.

The simpler one, script will just call genlop and pop up a message when it has something to say.

You can run it as a cron job e.g. like this:

*/5 * * * * /home/user/bin/ 2>/dev/null

You need app-portage/genlop and of course kde-base/kdialog installed.

The included Makefile will copy the script to ~/bin and set up a symlink in the KDE autostart folder (~/.kde4/Autostart). Do not run make if you don't want this.
