multiple command shells

Postby Bernini on Mon Jun 15, 2009 4:41 am

im not really asking for any specific reason other than curiosity, but under gnome/x you can open as many terminal windows as you might want... say to have a tcpdump going so u can see what another process is outputting or whatever... i was just wondering outside of x in a command shell would it be possible to have more than 1, and if so how would you do that?

this is really just more of a curiosity... there isnt any real reason why i need to know this thanx

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Look up (gnu) screen: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Screen I use it by default. Ubuntu also made a screen profile chooser for Jaunty (and hence Gloria).

im a little more amazed by linux everyday... mint6 or ubuntu for most peoples home computing needs would be better than windows... if youre just doing email and browsing maybe chatting... this OS has to be better than windows... just as easy to use more secure
