Trouble running fte from the Official Debian 1.3.1
I have installed the fte text editor package from my Cheap*Bytes Official
Debian 1.3.1 CD-ROM. I can run the text-mode (vfte) version of this
program just well, but only as root! If I try to run vfte as a normal
user, I get the following:
open: Permission denied
failed to open /dev/vcsa*
Is there a small permission problem that might have been fixed since
Debian 1.3.1 was released? I really don't want to make vfte setuid
(heavens, someone can just happily modify my /etc/passwd as will).
