Re: Unable to determine your tty name error.
Just following up to myself, having attempted to repeat my previous
experiments with wheezy-grip...

After completing the initial package configuration of a multistrapped system
and having made an attempt to remove the root password (which may or may not
have done anything, but there isn't a root password afterwards, anyway), I
then cannot set a root password and get the following error:
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
passwd: password unchanged
There are also odd things like trying to ping another host while logged in as
the root user and getting the following error:
ping: ping must run as root
(That said, I'm not completely sure that the kernel is as happy as it was
Trying to add a new user with adduser gets the following error when setting a
chfn: PAM: Authentication failure
adduser: `/usr/bin/chfn paulb' returned error code 1. Exiting.
Upon rebooting and attempting to log in, I get the previously stated error
message flashed up briefly on the display after trying to log in as root or
my perhaps unsuccessfully created user:
Unable to determine your tty name
I'm using the same kernel as before, which is a mipsel 3.3.8 Linux kernel
built using the OpenWrt toolchain. So perhaps there's some incompatibility
between kernel and user space.
