I have a question for anyone. If I've already began emerging something, can I open a new terminal window and emerge another program? I would think it would screw things up, but I want to check with anyone who's ever tried it.

Sincerely,

Mark

Back when I first installed Gentoo, I did in fact emerge multiple things at one time with no problem. I believe portage has locks to keep different instances of itself from stepping on each other. The only tricky times are when it is looking at the database. Other than that, it basically functions as a script which is running configure, make and make install. These can obviously be done in parallel with other emerge jobs.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favour of
Portage multithreading
Parallel downloading/compiling with portage?
