Re: [Plug] expect problem

It sounds to me that you're running a kernel without unix98 pty support
or you're not mounting /dev/pts with the proper permissions.

Should be similar to this:

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

See the docs in the kernel source tree.


So why do I love when I still feel pain?
When does it end, when is my work done?
Why am I lone and why do I feel
that I carry a sword through a battlefield?
