Hi,

I just left a screen in a remote machine (holding an "emerge -auD world" command) and I cannot attach to it anymore. When I try with "screen -r -d" the terminal just hangs :?

I tried googling around and found some people with the same problem. There is a guy that says he solved that with "strace" command

but this is not working for me...

Any ideas/suggestions on this?

Greetings!!

EDIT: ooops...it seems this is a known bug

Does temporarily downgrading app-misc/screen to the version you were using prior to the @world update allow you to attach to that session again?

yes, masking screen-4.0.3-r4 (and hence using 4.0.3) did the trick

Thanks!!

Just remember to unmask the newer version when you have a chance to switch to new sessions.

Moved from Other Things Gentoo to Duplicate Threads, given the topic we both ended up linking to.
