TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Will Byobu be put back into turnkey linux?

Will Byobu be put back into turnkey linux? because I liked Byobu, because you can have multiple tabs of command prompts, and if one gets hanged, then you can just open another tab.

I don't think for the upcoming 11.0 release

From what I gather from the comments on the core-beta blog post, I don't think it will make it into the 11.0 release. But, you can easily install it via:

apt-get update
apt-get install byobu

It won't

But you can install it as Rick suggest, or learn how to use the screen command. I miss it also but prefer that it was removed as I only use it on occasions. 

Screen Still exists, How Do I use byobu instead?

It should be an option during install

Or you could try reconfiguring it.

dpkg-reconfigure byobu
