Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Guys, could someone explain? This actually only is the fix for non-root users. Root never had the issue in the first place.
Seems to that this fix works when screen expects to
get it's pty's from another location.
By mounting the real location to the 'expected' location screen can appearantly retrieve it's pty's successfully.
When you google "sorry could not find pty" this is the first site that pops up. As I got this error in terminal on my Mac I thought I would post my simple solution, add sudo in front of your command and your good to go. Hope this helps someone...
I run Debian (Lenny) and was having the same PTY issue. The solution in my situation was to use MAKEDEV to create a new PTY in /dev as root and thereby facilitate the creation of a new session by a non-root user:
Keep in mind you will only create one pty device each time you "MAKEDEV pty", so this is likely not a solution if the number of non-root sessions active at any one time cannot be known ahead of time.
