I did a bit further looking
in libkpty (kde4libs/kpty/kpty.c), there is a call to openpty:
(this is compiled with g++)
::openpty( &d->masterFd, &d->slaveFd, ptsn, 0, 0)
(d is a pointer to a struct, d->masterFd is a int, d->slaveFd is a
int, ptsn is a char pointer)
which fails with EINTR (according to errno)
I tried then look at xterm sources, which apparantly doesn't use openpty
by default, but has codepaths to use openpty. I made xterm use the
openpty codepath, and xterm actually worked...
xterm is doing:
openpty(pty, &opened_tty, ttydev, NULL, NULL);
(pty is a pointer to int, opened_tty is a int, ttydev is a char pointer)
I'm out of clue and/or inspiration.
