Description Richard W.M. Jones 2008-06-21 08:29:07 EDT
Since recently upgrading something in Rawhide, gnome-terminal doesn't start up. I see the error message "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal". Version: 126.96.36.199-1.fc10 I don't know if this is related, but xterm doesn't start up either. It says: xterm: Error 32, errno 2: No such file or directory Reason: get_pty: Not enough ptys I have set SELinux to Permissive, so it's probably not an SELinux problem.

Created attachment 309966 [details] strace -f -s 1500 from gnome-terminal This is an strace of gnome-terminal starting up, failing, then closing down. It appears to be a pty problem as far as I can see.
