Updated Console Access Program (lish)

November 8, 2003 5:34 pm

The Linode Shell, or lish, is the small script that runs when you connect to the host (username@hostX.linode.com) for console access.

Lish now prompts you if you want to retry to connect to the console, instead of just attempting to reattach so many times and then disconnecting.

This also solves the problem for people who detatch from screen and are immediately re-attatched.

NOTE: There is one remaining bug — if you issue a reboot or shutdown the Lish program get’s killed. Eventually, Lish won’t do this so you won’t have to reconnect to the host.

    This is now fixed. Lish doesn’t get killed when the cleanup procedure runs on the host.

    Also, the “[i]uml-leaving a thread behind and keeping the filesystems locked bug[/i]” is also fixed, since the cleanup script now does a seek and destroy mission on your pids as a last resort. Even with the newest procps, skill wasn’t finding all the threads.
