Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 132398
No xterm after some time
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:09:36 EST
Description of problem:
After two days uptime, I cannot open xterms anymore:
xterm: Error 32, errno 2: No such file or directory
Reason: get_pty: not enough ptys
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux uno.theory.org 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 #1 Tue Aug 3 09:19:06 EDT 2004
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
rpm -q xterm
Waiting for while?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for long enough
2. Open an xterm
Cannot open new xterm, even when killing old one.
Happened only after 2 days+ uptime. Cannot try latest 2.6.8 kernel
because of other severe cd burning bugs.
Most likely this is a duplicate of Bug #128154 which is solved by
newer kernels. Please install the latest FC2 kernel (521) or latest
rawhide kernel, both of which should solve this problem. Please
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
