Package: pbuilder
Version: 0.227
Severity: minor

Dear Pbuilder Maintainers,

   I want to rebuild locally gcc-5 and gcc-4.9 in current stretch by pbuilder.

   I download the source of gcc-5 (Debian) and gcc-4.9 (from Ubuntu) and rebuild by "sudo pbuilder build gcc-xxxxx.dsc".
   But building failed with reporting:
      "The system has no more ptys. Ask your system administrator to create more."
      "while executing"
      "spawn ls"

   I gave a try in Pbuilder with root user:
   # expect -c "spawn ls"
   It is OK to output "spawn ls"

   But when I type above command with normal user:
   rleigh@WFA256:/$ expect -c "spawn ls"
                     spawn ls
                    The system has no more ptys.  Ask your system administrator to create more.
                    while executing
                    "spawn ls"

   I check the /dev/pts, it was mounted in Pbuilder (with both root/normal users):
       rleigh@WFA256:/$ mount | grep pts
                        none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)

       root@WFA256:/# mount | grep pts
                        none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)

   I have same issue in sbuild if I rebuild gcc by:
      $ sbuild -d stretch gcc-xxxx.dsc

   But it is OK if rebuild with root user:
      $ sudo sbuild -d stretch gcc-xxxx.dsc

   Yes I can rebuild gcc by sudo sbuild, but I don't know what is happening in Pbuilder or Sbuild with normal user.
   Any comment or advice would be very appreciated !

   Best Regards,
   Xiangyu LIU

   [ Simon McVittie ]
   * Instead of creating a /dev/ptmx → pts/ptmx symlink unconditionally,
     try mknod with “c 5 2” parameters first, and fall back to a symlink
     only if it fails. This should help with various tools like pbuilder,
     sbuild, and schroot (Closes: #817236).
   * Add autopkgtest support to test various scenarios.
   [ Cyril Brulebois ]
   * Uniformize COMPONENTS/USE_COMPONENTS handling.
