Server refused to allocate pty

Post by bdonkey » Tue Dec 21, 2004 12:54 am

Hello,
Whenever I try to SSH into GentooX, after logging in, I get a "Server refused to allocate pty." error. Anybody know what's wrong?


For background info, it's probably because I converted my native install back into a loopback, but I've edited the fstab, and I've used the initrd.gz from an e-drive install.

Do GentooX fstabs normally have an entry for /dev/pts?

If so, is yours correct? If you manged that entry, you could well run into this problem.

Yeah, I thought about that, but my original fstab didn't have a /dev/pts line. Out of frustration, I tried adding it anyway, but it doesn't do a thing (or maybe I bungled that too)
