gnome terminal "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"
Last modified: 2008-06-21 16:40:48 EDT
Since recently upgrading something in Rawhide, gnome-terminal
doesn't start up. I see the error message "There was an error
creating the child process for this terminal".
I don't know if this is related, but xterm doesn't start up
either. It says:
xterm: Error 32, errno 2: No such file or directory
Reason: get_pty: Not enough ptys
I have set SELinux to Permissive, so it's probably not an SELinux
Created attachment 309966 [details]
strace -f -s 1500 from gnome-terminal
This is an strace of gnome-terminal starting up, failing, then
closing down. It appears to be a pty problem as far as I can see.
fixed in initscripts-8.78-1 in koji
Yes, the new initscripts fixes this.
