Try redirecting stderr and stdout to a file -- the
process may be getting suspended by the shell due to
pymol -qc script.pml >&
pymol -qc script.pml > pymol.log
I seem to be having trouble running pymol (v1.0, gentoo)
in the background from a terminal, neither appending "&" nor "ctrl+z"
followed "bg" is doing the trick. In both cases pymol freezes during
certain operations, eg opening pdbs, drawing cartoon. The window controls
themselves respond. Don't want to have to change directory in pymol all the
time. Any ideas?
I think perhaps the most important problem
is that we are trying to understand the fundamental workings of the
universe via a language devised for telling one another when the best fruit
