Question: Using btget I am able to start downloading a torrent file which works fine, the problem is that as soon as I exit telnet, the process dies. I also tried using & which allows me to use the telnet console but the process still exits after the telnet window closes. How can I start btget and shut down my PC (telnet session) and just let btget run on its own? This is probably a general LINUX question. Thanks.
Ok, I found out that I need 'nohup' or something like it. Does that exist for the NSLU2?
bwalle: Of course does nohup exist, it's in the "coreutils" package.
'Screen' is the solution so it seems :) See KeepRemoteConsoleSessionRunning
The bash has a built-in feature for that: $ help disown disown: disown [-h] [-ar] [jobspec ...]
By default, removes each JOBSPEC argument from the table of active jobs. If the -h option is given, the job is not removed from the table, but is marked so that SIGHUP is not sent to the job if the shell receives a SIGHUP. The -a option, when JOBSPEC is not supplied, means to remove all jobs from the job table; the -r option means to remove only running jobs.
