Using CentOS 5, I have a screen session running and I often reattach to it after a day or two with the usual:
screen -r <sockname>
The session reattaches fine, and runs fine (I can see output from ongoing processes happening in the background) but I can't enter in any commands... Does anyone have any tips for getting screen sessions to start accepting your commands again?
Note that I can enter C- commands successfully, I.E. C-d detaches the session, C-[ enters copy mode - k,l then scroll through the buffer. I simply can't enter in any system commands, like ps etc.
You may need to detach any existing sessions in order to take the write lock for the session. For example,
screen -d -r
Hey so I am still having this problem? Does anyone have any solutions?
