2010-11-08 18:34:42     disown a process using msh and dropbear

I am using dropbear (0.48) as an ssh daemon (via inetd) and using busybox msh as

my system shell.

 

When I ssh into my box, I want to start a process in the background and then

exit out of the ssh session.  Unfortunately, this causes my background process

to die off (as should be expected.)

 

I would like to use something like "disown" but do not see it in the user build

options.  What is the best way to start a process in the background via ssh and

then be able to exit from my ssh session?

 

Thanks

use setsid.  busybox already includes it.
