[Solved] makepkg into background

Hey,
I would like to know if there is a possibility to send the 'makepkg' command into background. I have tried it by adding an '&', but at anytime the compilation stopped. Without the '&' the compilation was successfully.
Scenario which I wanna have:
1. Connect to the compilation server per ssh (e.g.: from other client, mobile phone)
2. Start compilation using 'makepkg'
3. Disconnect the ssh session
4. Anytime connect per ssh with any device and look at the compilation state.

Is this possible?

You can start build in tmux session, dettach it, and attach it when you want to check state.

Startx tmux, run makepkg, dettach with ^b d and attach it with tmux a.

Thanks a lot for your fast answers.
Tried tmux and it seems to be exactly what I was searching for.

For sure. ;-)
Just thought about an additionally button for marking a thread as solved. Then it would be much easier not to forget about this. ;-)

Marking a thread as solved is most useful for people googling their problems.  When they see the "solved!" they can click right into a productive thread. wink big_smile
