opening another terminal
I'm running centos in shell mode only. Trying to troubleshoot a freeradius problem so I'd like to open up a second shell as I can't do anything once freeradius is up and running until I cntrl-c out of it.
How do I open up a second shell? can this even be done? How do I switch between them?
You should probably look at screen. It allows you to have an arbitrary number of shell sessions open concurrently, with the ability to switch between sessions arbitrarily.
alt-F1 alt-F2, and so on switches between login consoles.
will background the process ... if it doesn't output lots of
stuff at all times you can carry on using the same shell.
