Re: Screen Command

OK not to be a pain but this is going to be a long compile, so i want to get
this right :)


Putty (ssh to box.com) to box and start compile (make install)
stuff is going all over screen (make installing ), how do i let it keep
going and detach to pick up later?

after that when i get home to the host box, i open up terminal and get:
i type screen -rd ?

I guess where i am not getting it is using putty do i use the screen command
BEFORE i start entering the commands?
