Using 'nohup' or 'screen' for compiling TMVA file

I am trying to compile my TMVA file which I usually just to do with “root TMVAFileName.c”.
But, I am trying to run it in the background using either nohup or screen and both are failing.
With ‘nohup’ I am getting: “ignoring input”.
With ‘screen’ because I am not the su I cannot run it in my university cluster.
I haven’t tried it on lxplus but I doubt without the su, I can do it there either.
Has anyone tried this before?

There is a related question here: Linux command nohup and Root

Hi Psiddire,

Have you tried running the macro in the background (“root -b -q TMVAFileName.c”) in nohup or screen?
