I'm having a problem with screen. There was a message a while ago about
screen asking for a password, which wasn't the user's. I haven't had
that problem until now.
I've just gotten a dumb terminal, and have attached it to /dev/cua1. On
the local console, everything works fine. I can create, lock, detach
and re-attach screens without problem. However, running screen on the
terminal produces this error with these steps:
1) Run screen (creating, changing and moving around screens is ok)
2) Lock Screen -- Comes up with the "Screen used by ... Password:"
3) Type in proper password.
4) Screen then prompts for "Screen Password:", which I don't have.
If I type in my incorect login password at the "Password:" prompt, screen
gives an error.
I can re-attach to these screens from the local console, but not from the
For reference, here is the line in /etc/inittab that rus getty on my
7:23:respawn:/sbin/getty /dev/modem -Lh 19200 vt220
which is the final line in the file.
