I'm using screen on debian lenny, and I would like to use the
-R option. From
-R attempts to resume the youngest (in terms of creation time) detached screen session it finds. If successful, all other com‐ mand-line options are ignored. If no detached session exists, starts a new session using the specified options, just as if -R had not been specified.
However, when I run
screen -R it does not actually attach to the youngest detached session. Instead, it complains that there are "several suitable screens" and that I need to choose one of them.
Am I missing something? How do I make this work as advertised?
