My ubuntu VM does not run
cron jobs with a TTY (not even when I log in and run the command from the user's env).
Because of this, cron can't run
screen, preventing programs (specifically
rtorrent in this case) to be run in the background in a simple and attachable way.
What is the best approach to running a program like
rtorrent on boot while making it easy to attach, detach, and kill the process from any terminal?
I assume just running the equivalent of
rtorrent & should do it, but this is not as convenient as screen/tmux.
