nohup: redirecting stderr to stdout
Deacon_Cronin (67)

Occasionally whenever I run any pygame repl (at least to my knowledge regardless of code) it which eventually display "nohup: redirecting stderr to stdout" and stop everything. This happens every time I make a new pygame repl, after some time. I have no idea what the problem is. This happens even if I replace all the code.

Renaming the repl then changing the name back worked for me.


@TrentonHorne i've been having the same problem as well, and this seems to help fix it (at least temporarily, after a while it starts acting up again). thanks!

Does it still happen if you fork your repl?


@themaka I also have this problem and it works after I fork the repl. It is still very annoying though.

@themaka It works for a while after I fork the repl, but the error just comes back.

@themaka Yeah, I have the same problem. Is there any solution to solve that ?

pygame just stops working for a while and even in a different repl or new repl created after it starts doing this will do the same thing. it's probably a server-side problem.

@ETHANSIAO Totally on the same boat. I'm having the same problem. The team need to look at this.

@PYer Do you have any idea what this is about? You're my favorite python lad (although I don't know if you use pygame)

@Deacon_Cronin Rob created the pygame, and made it print that. it is not a problem, just some text that is printed in the terminal.

Deacon_Cronin (67)

@PYer When the message displays the code doesn't run, and nothing else is printed. It is definitely a problem

@Deacon_Cronin it does work. i just think that the function doesn't
