Hi everyone, congrats for the answers, I've been consulting linuxquestions.org for quite a few months for my FC3 problems.
First, here's the setup. My computer is a P3 1Ghz with 512 MB of RAM, a GeForce4 MX440, a 250GB HD, plus some other junk to keep it all together. I use it as an all around server: Apache experiments, VNC browsing from my job (proxies are blocking me), FTP backups, and pretty soon TV surfing. Basically when I moved in this apartment I found out there was no place for a desktop computer. There's not even a corner to put into, so I simply set it up as a headless server in my laundry room. Then, after a few days, I figured out I could simply run a S-video wire for my video card through the wall and connect it to my TV. And it works! So the next step will be to buy a wireless keyboard/mouse kit pretty soon to I'll be able to surf/check my email/quake/irc/experiment more with my FC3 box. All in all, I think FC3 answers pretty much to all of my questions up to now.
There's a problem that twitches my curiosity thought: In FC2, I could bend an alias kind of like this one:
alias btget='screen btdownloadheadless.py --display_interval 10 --spew 1 --max_upload_rate 10'
The --max_upload_rate 10 part is necessary because my download/uploads are limited or else I'll have to pay 7$ per GB overused. But every time I use that alias, it simply exits the screen and gets out. I then tried typing manually
screen btdownloadheadless.py --display_interval 10 --spew 1 --max_upload_rate 10
and it still does it. So now when I want to do some bittorrent from my job, I have to go into VNC, fire up a terminal window, type the line up, minimize the terminal window and then exit VNC. It's pretty weird though, since it worked perfectly in FC2. It's like if it would exit at the very first error or connection failure. It also does that with Ctorrent.
So, Am I the only one to have that screen command bug, or does anyone have an answer?
Thanks for the help.
