i want to set up a half life cs server and i was wondering if it is possible to make run as a daemon. i ve set up a server before but i dont like the idea of it taking up on of my terminals. and how would u do this for any service that wasnt already a daemon
You can put a program into the background by starting it with a '&':
If you want it to keep running when you logout, use nohup.
someprog -argslist &
nohup someprog -argslist &
