Description DE 2005-03-17 13:26:25 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
$ script
pt_chown: needs to be installed setuid `root'
openpty failed
$ echo $?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. As non-root user, invoke script
2. Verify error message
3. This is step number three

Actual Results:  Script command fails complaining about pt_chown needing to be setuid 'root'

Expected Results:  The command should have exited with a zero status and initiated a log file in the current working directory of each command the user types and terminal output for commands in a log file.  See script(1)

Additional info:

The bugzilla interface has a terrible searching interface.  However, for bugs listed under 'util-linux', this one was not listed.  Therefore I believe to the best of my knowledge that this is a new bug.

I can't reproduce it:

$ rpm -q util-linux
$ script
Script started, file is typescript

It looks you haven't mounted /dev/pts. Please, check it:

$ mount | grep devpts
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
