    Run a program on background

    haodong

      Hi All,

       

      I understand that   "nohup python xxx.py" can run a python script on background in Linux system.

      But when I use   "nohup python xxx.py" in yocto linux, it seem as follow:

       

      root@edison:~# nohup xxxxx.py

      nohup: appending output to nohup.out

       

      Then it don't allow me to go back to the terminal until the end of program.

       

      I am wondering how can I run the script on background and then go back to the terminal, so that I can run other programs.

       

      Many thanks

      Hao
