HELP 2.6 kernel and X terminal. [FXx]

So I compiled the 2.6 kernel, and with much help from people on IRC, I got it working.

Everything seems to work except that when I open an X terminal (gnome-terminal, xterm, aterm, konsole), it doesnt work. They just dont open.

How strange?

Does anyone have any ideas?

The regular text terminal works though.

I get this when running xterm:

xterm: Error 32, errno 2: No such file or directory
Reason: get_pty: not enough ptys

Re: HELP 2.6 kernel and X terminal. [FXx]

I made the same error at first. You have to enable the devpts filesystem under filesystems. If I remember correctly, it appears directly after the devfs setting.

After that, add the following line to your /etc/fstab:

none  /dev/pts  devpts  default  0  0

Yeah, that fixed it, thanks.

2.6 is awesome, EVERYTHING is faster, and multi tasking is a dream.

Ive been messing with the configs though, so lets see how long it takes me to break it again. tongue

How did you upgrade to kernel 2.6, using pacman or did it manually?

Re: HELP 2.6 kernel and X terminal. [FXx]

Just a mention that the addition of adding the devpts to /etc/fstab solved the problem for me as well as mentioned in this thread

Re: HELP 2.6 kernel and X terminal. [FXx]

Thanks for all the help folks.  I finally got a 2.6 kernel working with the help of the posts on this board.  Couldn't do it in Gentoo or Slackware or Debian but is works great in Arch.  I even stole the kernel and source (test9-mm1) along with modules-init-tools from my Gentoo partiion.  Strange that what I compiled in Gentoo would not work in Gentoo but copied over to Arch, it works like it was compiled just for my machine.  Wait a minute...it was compiled for my machine, just not compiled for Arch.

Re: HELP 2.6 kernel and X terminal. [FXx]

Thanks for that easy way to install module-init-tools. Just one little prob in the package: you should also treat 'insmod'. Keeping the old insmod in plae prevents, for instance, the NVidia drivers to install correctly. That said, it's just a matter of seconds modyfing the script. peace!
