On older DSL distributions, I've noticed that applications will still keep running after a terminal session is closed or exited. How is this accomplished?
Typically, when exiting a session a HUP (hangup) signal is sent to all child processes and they shutdown. But Damnsmall Linux doesn't behave this way; process still stay running.
How is this being accomplished?
I'd like to reproduce this.
It is definitely not using 'screen'.
