Subject: [svlug] question about GNU screen
Date: Tue, 10 Oct 2006 15:54:05 -0700 (PDT)
To: svlug at lists.svlug.org


I have an existing screen session on a remote machine. In
this session, I'm editing some file using Vim and suddenly
the network connection goes down.

When I reconnect to the remote machine, my earlier screen
session is still alive (as expected). So, I can re-attach to the
old session and continue working.

Is there a way, I can continue with my Vim session that was
running under screen ?

Thanks in advance,

(Ani)ruddha Mulay

I'm not sure I understand the problem...you say that you can re-attach to the 
old session and continue working, but then you ask if you can continue. Are 
you receiving some error?

You can't just 'screen -r' ?

Are you saying that Vim is *not* still up when you reconnect to the
remote machine then type "screen -r"? That would be ... um, unusual.
Screen sessions have always, in my experience, been in precisely the
state they were in when I left them (or some later state, if I left a
evolving process, say a compile or similar).

So, the short answer to your question is yes. Vim should still be
running when you reconnect first to the remote system, then reattach the
screen session with screen -r. So you'll still be working in your Vim
session.

Does this answer your question?

Get used to typing (or recalling from your command stack) 
"screen -r -d" as the first thing you do after login.

Jeff, Brian and Rick,

Thanks for the response. Yes, I'm aware of 'screen -r'.

> Get used to typing (or recalling from your command stack)

I have 'screen -r' in my .bash_profile.

This incidence was an error on my part. Looks like, I had
connected to the wrong screen session. Sorry about that.

Ooo! Ooo! I know this one!

Automatically reattaching to a screen session
http://www.linuxworld.com/news/2006/100306-screen-session.html

That's a nifty way to do it automatically -- and also
"steal" your screen session from where it was showing
up before in case you forgot to detach there.

(In the recent past, I didn't know this one, so I
hired Brian Tanaka, who is good at explaining this
kind of thing, to write that. I now need to learn LVM.)

http://www.nbc11.com/news/10046048/detail.html

Summary:
Hans Reiser of ReiserFS fame was arrested today around 11 AM by Oakland
PD on suspicion of murder of his estranged wife Nina. The news story
(URL above) was initially posted at 2:06 PM, and has been updated once
on the Web, 20 minutes ago, following a 5 PM press conference (which
apparently merely announced that this is now considered a murder case,
and not just a missing persons one).

Hans's house was searched (again) yesterday, according to the NBC11
story. The story says "Authorities would not discuss what evidence they
have", but that Hans "will be charged and the case will proceed" even
though Nina's body has not been found.

FLOSS Usability Sprint III is here and happening -- for real! It'll be
October 27-29, 2006 at Google. Many thanks to Rick Boardman and Google for
hosting the event!

http://www.flossusability.org/

This event will be slightly different than our last two in that the first
day (Friday, October 27) will be evening only -- 6pm-9pm. Saturday and
Sunday, we'll work all day, 9am-6pm. Also, in addition to working with
projects, we'll be spending part of the time organizing a remote usability
sprint.

We've got a couple of projects signed up already, with room for a few more.
If you're interested in participating, please submit an application at the
web site. We've got limited space, so please register quickly, and spread
the word!

Thanks! Looking forward to seeing many of you there.

=Eugene
