I'm installing a new Gentoo, and as you know, compiling takes LONG time.
The issue is that I want to check if compiling has done or not, but long compiling makes screen become black.

Without Xorg or DE(because I didn't even reach there yet), how can I prevent dim screen or the blank screen?

whjeon ...

man setterm wrote:
--blank [0-60|force|poke] (virtual consoles only)

Sets the interval of inactivity, in minutes, after which the screen will be automatically blanked (using APM if available). Without an argument, it gets the blank status (returns which vt was blanked, or zero for an unblanked vt).

So, to disable set to '0' (zero):

Code:
# setterm --blank 0

HTH & best ... khay
