General :: Running Program In Background In Child Emulator Process

Aug 26, 2009

I wonder how one can, if at all, run an X program in the background *in an emulator sub-shell process*. What I mean is to launch a program in an emulator, e.g, by xterm -e gedit

but with gedit (in this example) running in the background from inside the xterm sub-process, so that the xterm will accept other commands. In the above, gedit will run in the foreground, and of course, if you do
xterm -e gedit &

then xterm will run in the background, not gedit.In short, I would like to achieve the same thing as "gedit &" as you manually do in xterm, but from another shell. What I aim to do is write an X init script to achieve this result (to have the emulator open and a program or two running from it, in the background, at the X startup).

General :: Pull Process / Job Into Background

Jan 17, 2011

I know of terminating a command with & and then moving it into the background by pressing Ctrl-Z and then bg [pid], and I also know of nohup. But say you started a process that turned out to take much longer than one expected, is there a way of pulling, so to speak, this process from another terminal screen into the background so that even if I log off from the server the process would continue?

General :: Sending Remote Command To Background Process + Out Log?

Feb 1, 2010

Because of my English skills I'll try to explain this subject as best I can, thank you for understanding. Fisrt of all, I am running some program on my slackware in background (using standard method - &). I need to make a script, which allows sending command to this process on my machine from another one. Furthermore this program have to be logged out (standard output f.e. ./myprogram > log.out.txt).It might be a separate Program A which runs my Program B but it cannot be screen, because it is not working like I'd like to and it cannot be java, because it's slow and working not the best so to speak

General :: Function Having Background Process Inside Command Substitution

Oct 5, 2010

The first call to "somefunction" works as expected. The function prints "endfunction" and a process in background sleeps 30 seconds. In the second call I thought it should work in the same way, but the script sleeps 30 seconds before it prints "endfunction".Does someone know the reason of this behavior? Is there another way to do a command substitution of a function that has a background process without have to waiting for that process?

General :: Running Php In The Background?

May 31, 2010

I have a LAMP server with some php files. When I do this:

> php -f filename.php

It works great. But of course, it stops when I close the SSH window. I need to be able to run it and leave it running. The script is a crawler and it takes about 3 hours to complete it. So I tried this:

> php -f filename.php &

This doesn't work at all. It doesn't even execute the script.

I want to create a new process (for which the sleep is just an example) in the while loop:

CentOS 5 :: Sending Process To Background?

Apr 30, 2011

It's my first post and think not last here. I'm new to Linux system ( had a bit of unix programming at school but forgot already ). Please, take a good care of nooby me Now, let's get to the point

I have CentOS installed on one of my machnce, its my PHP development server. I also wanted to run a Minecraft server on it. I would like to skip autostart with init.d thing and be able to control it's run manually, but remotely. Thing is, when i log via putty to server and start server the server output is in terminal. When I close puty, ran application closes also. So I need to have putty window ran all the time.

So, since many programs can be run as background task (like httpd). Is there a way to log via putty. Start application and send it to process... log out of putty ( and application doesn't shut down with putty)?

Also, would be nice if I was possible to log to putty and switch to that application, so i could see server output, info and Issue commands. Basically, I want to start a service and be able to manage it via putty. and not close it when i terminate putty.

PS: I have installed Windows on CentOS server. Is there a way to issue a system start without loading whole GUI thing? When I was installing it I thought it would be easier to manage it with GUI, but now loading it only eats system resources and i unplugged monitor and mouse nad manage it only from Putty
