For cases where a linux process is taking longer than you expected and you want to put the process on nohup so it won't terminate when you log out, you can:

  • If the process is not in the background, you can press ctrl + z to pause the program and then type 'bg' to put the process into the background.
  • typing 'disown -h' will make sure all active jobs will not get a SIGHUP when you log out or close the terminal.
