Description bbernard 1999-04-29 19:33:41 EDT
I successfully completed a FTP installation of v6.0 and upon
loading Gnome and accessing a terminal, the terminal comes
up with the cursor but typing produces no output.  NetScape,
file managers and editors work.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-30 10:51:59 EDT
what does /etc/fstab look like?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-04 12:02:59 EDT
Try doing the following as root:

mount -o mode=0620,gid=5 -t devpts none /dev/pts

Does that solve the problem with gnome-terminal?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-06 11:49:59 EDT
You can put the line:
none		/dev/pts		devpts	mode=0620,gid=5	0 0

in your /etc/fstab, so the filesystem would be mounted at boot.

Could not replicate this on a test machine. I did a 5.2 install then
upgraded by ftp to 6.0.
