Attached another dmesg output, this time from an FC7T1 x86_64 system (DELL
Latitude D620 laptop).

BTW: There is no product / version for FC7T1 in Bugzilla yet.
Comment 3 Aristeu Rozanski 2007-03-09 15:36:50 EST
Can you test the kernel on http://people.redhat.com/arozansk/ptytest/fc6/ and tell
me if you can reproduce the problem?
Comment 4 Bernd Bartmann 2007-03-10 06:11:06 EST
Just installed the i686 ptytest kernel on the FC6 PIV HT system. I couldn't see
the error message so far. Is there any way to trigger the error?

This testcase (compile with gcc -lpthread -o pty_testcase pty_testcase.c)
the error much more easily on some machines. You may test this testcase with
unpatched kernel to check if it triggers then boot on the patched kernel to

Beware: this message you're hitting may cause another bigger bug that makes
impossible to allocate more ptys, thus you won't be able to open other openssh
sessions, so it's recommended it's tested in a local machine.
Comment 6 Bernd Bartmann 2007-03-10 14:36:49 EST
Ok, tested pty_testcase on 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6 (latest FC6 kernel update). On
this kernel the bug is 100% reproducible and fills /var/log/messages with call

I can't reproduce the problem on the test kernel 2.6.20-1.2922.fc6.ptytest.
ptytest keeps running with no output at all and nothing is logged to

Comment 7 Aristeu Rozanski 2007-03-12 11:05:48 EDT
I just checked and the fix were included on the latest FC-6 CVS kernel, so it'll
be available on the next update. If it's still reproducible on kernel versions
newer than 2.6.20-1.2925, please reopen this ticket.
