comment Attach - Detach
please reformat the output so it's readable. Can you add details on how the data is copied? Which tool/commands are used? How is it scheduled or triggered? Could it be you are already connected to the screen session and as such cannot attach to the session a second time?

comment sh script cannot run process
Why would this be better than the OP's solution? fully qualifying like the OP did is better practice than "assuming" your cd worked. The only reason I see why this might work is if the CCcam app is depending on something else and uses relative paths.

comment The equivalent of start-stop-daemon for RedHat 6
for RHEL6 you will need to create and install a traditional sysV init script. Then you can user /etc/init.d/play stop/start or /sbin/service stop/start play etc. and /sbin/chkconfig play on/off to enable/disable it at boot time.

comment Why brace expansion not supported?
@user43312: why are you still using RH9? It has been unmaintained for many many years. AS Stephane wrote it is a feature of recent bash versions. So it's very unlikely that your bash version supports it. You can check the version using bash --version. And just to be sure check if you are running a bash shell by checking the $SHELL variable or simply running ps. To use this feature you might try to start a zsh shell (zsh) first. Anothher workaround would be to use something like "mkdir $(seq 1 10)".

comment Bash, name of the stdin file?
side note: counting the signs is not the best way to check if a file is valid. While it is recommended to encode a greater than sign as > the w3c validator doesn't even generate a warning if you don't. So if you are trying to validate XHTML/XML/SGML/etc. you need to look into different tests.

comment How can I fsck a partition when the device reads as busy (but has been confirmed otherwise)?
It didn't help in my case but the Red Hat KB (access.redhat.com/knowledge/solutions/54184) recommends adding the nodmraid kernel option as a workaround for this problem.

comment How can I fsck a partition when the device reads as busy (but has been confirmed otherwise)?
I'm encountering the same problem on a RHEL5.8 system. /tmp has been unmounted, /etc/mtab and /proc/mounts show no trace of the file system. I've even rebooted the machine, made sure I'm the only one logged on. lsof shows no file in use on /tmp. The same procedure works fine on 4 similar servers installed using the same kickstart profile. The difference between those servers and this one is that this one has SAN storage attached to it. Could the multipath daemon cause this?
