    Is it possible to have the notfred VM show the progress in its own window?

    Like you would with a standard Linux VM???

    Its a pita to be at the machine with it on but have to use fahmon to check it. So much easier to just open the window to see. :eyebrow:

    log in to notfred as root

    use the command
    Code:
    tail /etc/folding/1/FAHlog.txt
    update:

    The "tail" command displays the last ten lines of a text file.
    You can use the "-f" option to tell tail to redisplay the file when it changes. Control-C to exit.
    I can't test this at the moment as my notfred is waiting for work.
    Note there is a space before and after "-f". The command is:
    Code:
     tail -f /etc/folding/1/FAHlog.txt
