Special thanks, by the way, to whoever instructed me in the use of
"screen" the other year. If you need to run a utility via SSH where
there is a chance of losing the network connection, first run "screen"
to invoke a session that, if you get knocked off, you can reconnect to
by running "screen -r". If you're going to upgrade your Linux remotely,
do it in "screen". You won't regret it.
More info on "screen" and the many things it can do:
> Version 22 came out the other week, so it was upgrade time.
> Ever since they came out with the "fedora-upgrade" script, it's been
> super easy. Here's what you do:
> yum update
> yum install fedora-upgrade
> And that's it. Five out of five servers rebooted happily to Fedora
> 22. The only headache was that I had to run "chkconfig dhcpd on" and
> "systemctl start dhcpd.service" on those servers that were running
> DHCP, but that's the sort of thing that happens sometimes.
