chrooted user: "write" and "talk" don't work.
I have a chrooted user on my system but for some reason, he cannot use talk and write.
When I execute talk or write, I get the following error:

-bash-2.05b$ talk lieven
talk: cthulhu: Resolver Error 0 (no error)
-bash-2.05b$ write lieven
write: can't find your tty's name

I copied the two files to directory: /home/stijn/usr/bin/
And I also did an 'ldd' to find and copy the needed library dependencies to /home/stijn/lib/

I can logon without any trouble, use any of the builtin bash functions + some other commands that I copied to /home/stijn/bin/ directory:
-bash-2.05b$ pwd
/bin <====================== this is in fact /home/stijn/bin/
-bash-2.05b$ ls
bash cp ls mkdir mv rm rmdir su

What am I missing to make "write" and "talk" work? Or are they impossible to use from within a chroot jail?
