When I try to install a package, for instance nsnake, with the command
sudo apt-get install nsnake &, the process immediately stops. I can bring it to the foreground and enter my sudo password, pause it (with Ctrl-Z), and send it back to the background again. But then the shell will immediately pause the process, e.g.,
katriel@caseylaptop:~$ bg + sudo apt-get install nsnake & + Stopped sudo apt-get install nsnake
Is it possible to install packages in the background? I may want to do this while installing large packages on a computer I'm SSH'ing into.
