I am attempting to redirect all output of a program (Steam) to /dev/null so it doesn't show up in the terminal.
Here's what I've tried:
steam & > /dev/null 2>/dev/null and
steam & > /dev/null 2>&1
Neither of which suppress it's messages whatsoever (as far as I can tell.)
My understanding is that & detaches the process from the terminal, and > redirects input/output, with the default/blank > being stdout and 2> being stderr. Are there more outputs than those two? Why am I still seeing output if I'm redirecting all of it away?
