View Full Version : problems maintaining DS process

03-28-2002, 10:28 PM
Having managed to get a DS up and running using the linux server files, I'm now stuck by having to keep the a SSH window open connected to the server to keep the process alive...

As soon as I lose focus to the server process, the process dies. as you can imagine, this is totally frustrating.

I can live with having the SSH window open and connected to the server, but it's hardly a permanent solution.

if you have any ideas, any at all, please let me know!

need to use the screen command...

following command will start jk2ded in a virtual terminal
screen -A -m -d -S jk2 ./jk2ded +exec server.cfg

to reconnect, type:
screen -r jk2

and to quit the reconnected screen w/out killing the jkded process, hit control "a" and then "d"

You could also append the server command with a & and it will launch it as a background process. Useful if you won't be needing the console any, but meh. heh
