GNU screen gets killed on logout
Last modified: 2018-05-22 01:03:39 EDT
Description of problem:
GNU screen gets killed if I detach GNU screen and log out.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1. Login as user graphically
2. open gnome-terminal
3. $su - root
5. Detach screen
7. Logout of Gnome.
8. Login back again graphically
9. $su - root
10. $ screen -ls
There is a screen on:
12057.pts-1.hostname (Dead ???)
Remove dead screens with 'screen -wipe'.
1 Socket in /run/screen/S-root.
GNU screen should not be killed
Fresh installed Fedora 26.
Using XFS file system.
I tried the following two things after filing the bug.
As screen is working properly in Fedora 24 and 25, I installed Fedora 25 version of screen.
$dnf remove screen
$dnf install http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub/Linux/Fedora/updates/25/x86_64/s/screen-4.6.1-1.fc25.x86_64.rpm
Download, compile and install GNU screen from source.
GNU screen is getting killed after these 2 steps also.
The above issue is a known issue in systemd.
"systemd-logind will now by default terminate user processes that are part of the user session scope unit (session-XX.scope) when the user logs out."
Hope there is some fix by either systemd or screen teams.
Issue is there in Fedora 27 also.
Issue is there in Fedora 28 also.
