http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, I'm newhere (and also partly to Linux) and would like to know if there is a tool akin to System Automation / OPC/TWS on the IBM mainframe for Linux/Fedora. By which I mean that it would ve great if I could keep track ofany running task, and do something when it finises. Ie wait for a file copy job to finish (and maybe also have the compiler finish with rc<1) orwhateve with rc=0, then shutdown. So I can start those jobs, then walk away from my pc and go grocery shopping or whatever, without my pc staying on for too long after the jobs finish. Maybe also start cdrecord after the co (HowTos)
