} With screen you wouldn't put it in the background. If you
} have several machines in the location with reliable connections
} between them you would only have to run screen on one of them
} with ssh sessions out to the others and you'd still be able
} to disconnect and reconnect. I prefer to do this from a box
} running X with vnc enabled, but you get the same effect of being
} able to get back to long-running commands.
well, i am novice at screen. havent used for over a decade
i did this
then i did this
screen yum update
watched it. of course about 3/4 of way through i lost connectivity briefly
it completed fine.
i ssh'd back in and rebooted
and now am back in and
[root at ns2 ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 4.2 (Final)
thanks for help!
thing is, i need to learn how to make a new screen and be able to attach
back to it as i wasnt able o attach to this one even though it was still
there till done and went away.
