How can I close a terminal without killing the command running in it?
I have a very low-end "server" running Debian Squeeze that I occasionally ssh to. The system tends to be slow, e.g. running
apt-cache search might take half a minute. Occasionally I find that I can't wait for a process to complete (I'm on my laptop and need to go somewhere).
If I had originally started the process with
nohup or inside
screen, this would be no problem. But how can I get an already running process to continue despite my logging off?
