I'm stumped again. I'm having problems making new terminals with xterm. I've searched around on google and on LQ and haven't found a solution that solves my problem.
my /etc/fstab does mount /dev/pty at boot time. I'm running Kernel 126.96.36.199 and this is what I have in my kernel config:
$> cat /boot/config-188.8.131.52 | grep PTY
# CONFIG_LEGACY_PTYS is not set
How do I enable CONFIG_LEGACY_PTY? what are it's dependencies? when I rune make menuconfig, it doesn't show up as something I can enable. When I run xconfig, it is grayed out, so I assume that I did not activate some kernel option before it.
Any leads would help. I'm tired of killing all my xterms just to get xterms up and running again.
BTW: kill `pidof xterm` works great!
