When I tries to execute the xterm i got this message: xterm: no available ptys


Hi All,

When I tries to execute the xterm I got this error message:

xterm: noavailable ptys
I have the following system: HP-UX

I already tried to search for the error message but none of them resolve my issue. Thanks for your prompt reply.


John

Fairly common on HP-UX. You didn't indicat which one you have (9.04, 10.20, 11.11 etc...).

The following is an excerpt from a post on the Dutchworks mail archives:

Quote:
1. Use SAM --> Kernel --> Configurable Parameters

npty (10.20 and 11.0)

nstrpty (11.x only)

nstrtel (11.x only)

set NPTY, NSTRPTY, and NSTRTEL to 512, save and reboot.

NPTY, NSTRPTY, and NSTRTEL are the desired number of telnet sessions.

=20

2. Rebuild the special device files at the command prompt as follows:

=20

insf -d ptys -n 512 512 being the number you set NPTY in SAM
(10.20

and

11.0)

insf -d ptym -n 512 10.20 and 11.0)

=20

insf -d pts -s 512 -e -v (for 11.x only )

=20

insf -d pty -n 512 (for 11.x only )

=20

=20

=20

That's it, your sessions have been increased to 512

=20

NOTE: 512 is just and example value that was used. You should determine
the amount of PTYs needed by looking at the average amount of users that
login to your system.
The full post talks about telnet as well which you aren't interested in. The link was at:

Since the maintainers of LQ don't see fit to keep an HP-UX forum I always recommend HP-UXers go to Dutchworks or HP's ITRC forums.

HP's ITRC is at itrc.hp.com. You have to register then go to forums. Nowadays there is much more activity on ITRC than Dutchworks but Dutchworks has good archives and is active.

B.11.00.00 = 11.0 in HP-UX speak.

B.11.11.00 = 11iV1 in HP-UX speak

B.11.22.00 or B.11.23.00 = 11iV2 in HP-UX speak.

The post above does give you infromation for 11.0 (11).
