Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3901
autoexpect says the system has no more PTYs
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
BTW: expect-5.28-29.i386.rpm is not listed in components.
expect-scripts and autoexpect script generation doesn't
work anymore with the new Unix 98 pty compiled into the
kernel (my version 2.2.10)
Increasing the number of pty's doesn't solve the problem.
[root@zuse1 /root]# autoexpect
autoexpect started, file is script.exp
The system has no more ptys. Ask your system administrator
to create more.
"spawn -noecho $env(SHELL)"
(file "/usr/bin/autoexpect" line 317)
Make sure that /dev/pts is mounted. You should have a line in
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
I don't know of any other problems like this. Please reopen this
bug if my analysis is wrong.
