Running Commands in Background?

Hey… I’m doing so many works sometime, and sometimes it’s not in a way I can use tabs or different shells… Is there a way I can run some commands like upgrading in background?



you are looking for is called job control. With ^Z (control z) you can suspend a running job, and with “bg” you then can send the process into the background Looking Running Bring When you enter “jobs” you can see process list and their state. To bring one of the processes in the background into the foreground again (because maybe it waits for user input or such) you can do “fg x” where you replace x with the number of the job (written in square brackets before the command name).
