    Been there, done that.. Just run the command in the background using “&” and hope for the best!

      nohup + ‘&’, although I suspect you meant that. =)

      My preference would be to run it from ‘screen’. Or ‘tmux’, if that’s how you roll.

        I am leaning more towards tmux these days.

    Heh. The first time I updated LAN drivers over 56k link and rconsole on a NetWare 3 box was terrifying… And it was only 20 min away.

    Now days I prefer to update by destroying and rebuilding VMs. :)
