Re: [OFFTOPIC] .bash_profile Exit



Circa 2003-12-02 10:45:54 +0800 dixit Suat Lee:

: We had just upgraded Linux from 6.2 to 7.3 and is having problem with 
: .bash_profile 'exit'.
: 
: User's .bash_profile reads as follows:
: ...
: cd /dir1
: ./menu
: exit
: 
: When user login, menu will be prompted for user to start a few processes 
: and those processes are supposed to be running even after user exit from 
: login session. In 6.2, this is running well.
: 
: In 7.3, the processes are killed whenever user exit from login session. 
: If those lines were commented, and user manually cd /dir1 and ./menu, 
: the processes will be running well after exit. Is there a way to keep 
: the processes running after exit in .bash_profile of 7.3?

The version of bash changed between Red Hat Linux 6.2 (bash-1.14) and
Red Hat Linux 7.3 (bash-2.0x).  Read the bash manual page on your
RHL-7.3 system:

  man bash

and search for the words 'SIGHUP' and 'huponexit'.
