I don’t know why, but if you use the terminal emulator URxvt, the colour scheme Solarized and Neovim (or Vim) at the same time and then search for something, jump to the highlighted word, the cursor will then blend in a bit too much.
Ever since I retired my HTPC I have been using my desktop computer as my HTPC with my TV connected to it. My HTPC consisted (and still) does of some terminal emulator running software like Newsboat and Ranger, but because I want to be able to read the text on the TV from the distance of my sofa I have up until now been lazy and used a secondary terminal emulator with alteranative settings that better suited with large text and another colourscheme.
This issue was driving me nuts the other day, I could not find a solution to it and I’m not knowledeable enough to have figured it out myself. All credits goes to a user called Sheogorath on the IRC-channel #Jekyll at freenode.net for helping me with this.
With the help of the tool qlop from the collection of utilities called q applets you can check how long it took to install a package in Gentoo. qlop reads from your log $EMERGE_LOG_DIR/emerge.log and extracts relevant information.
I’m using Gentoo with OpenRC and I use the tool pm-utils to suspend my computer. The only issue I have with their way of automatically running a command when you resume your computer is the fact that it’s executed as root.
By default the Extended-filesystem, more known as Ext2/4, reserves 5% of the filesystem blocks on the filesystem for privileged processes. It’s done to avoid filesystem fragmentation and to allow system daemons to continue to function correctly after non-privileged processes are prevented from writing to the filesystem due to a full filesystem.
