Starting a program on the background
I try to start a program on my linux server,
but the program should start on the background.
in the rc.local file
but the program only seems to work when it is opend in a screen so i made it:
screen /map/map/theprogram &
and thats the way it works.
only the rest of the startup is going over the screen and isn't readable any more.
so i want to find a way to start the program in a screen but on the background. or the screen should be closed again before the rest or the reboot.
is there a way i can fix this?
Im kind of new in linux so i hope you can help me out.
