    Watch application

    I am trying to compile the nVidia drivers on my LFS system. When I do it tells me that the command watch is not found. So I had a look in debian and there is a command called watch. Where does this come from?

    hope this helps:

    Summary : System and process monitoring utilities.
    Description :
    The procps package contains a set of system utilities that provide
    system information. Procps includes ps, free, skill, snice, tload,
    top, uptime, vmstat, w, and watch. The ps command displays a snapshot
    of running processes. The top command provides a repetitive update of
    the statuses of running processes. The free command displays the
    amounts of free and used memory on your system. The skill command
    sends a terminate command (or another specified signal) to a specified
    set of processes. The snice command is used to change the scheduling
    priority of specified processes. The tload command prints a graph of
    the current system load average to a specified tty. The uptime command
    displays the current time, how long the system has been running, how
    many users are logged on, and system load averages for the past one,
    five, and fifteen minutes. The w command displays a list of the users
    who are currently logged on and what they are running. The watch
    program watches a running program. The vmstat command displays virtual
    memory statistics about processes, memory, paging, block I/O, traps,
    and CPU activity.
