One of the biggest annoyances I’ve had with using nuvexport is that the latest version doesn’t work well with nohup. It used to be that I could run “nohup nuvexport” in one window and “tail -f nohup.out” in the other, and use the tail command to view the output of nuvexport and enter the right prompts. Then, when I was all done with the shell, I could just log out, and nohup would keep the export ticking along.
Well, the new nuvexport doesn’t work with nohup. Fortunately, Google led me to Rob Newcater’s BasicallyTech blog, where I learned about the magic of disown in bash. It’s much more convenient than using nohup because if I forget to start the job in the correct way, I can background it and disown it without restarting from square one.
