Using nice to keep your processes in line (gentoo)

You can use the nice command to lower the priority of a process at run time

i use

nice emerge kde-4

When i want to install the latest kde4 build but still want my computer snappy while it works on the install

This will make the install of kde4 take longer but it wont let it use both my cores at 100%
