Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
Using '&' in Console
I am running the latest version of Ubuntu.
When I try running
and then type
it comes back fine.
If I try, however, to type
It says: "top
top: failed tty set: Interrupted system call"
If I try again to type 'jobs'
there are no jobs running.
You said that you use the newest ubuntu dist. Do you mean the newest stable "LTS" version (v. 14.04) or the newest version without "LTS" (v. 15.10) ? Because the 15.10 COULD MAYBE be the reason that it acts weird because it still is "kinda" under development. I really really doubt that it has something to do with it BUT you never know...
Or did you find the problem? If yes, what was ist? Because I'm just getting started on the Console foundation course, and I am too using ubuntu. The LTS version 14.04 (desktop).
I had the same issue, but it worked with your solution. I am running an Ubuntu within the Windows subsystem.
I was just wondering if you could tell me why it works when you are logged in as the root and not as a user.
Thanks in advance!
