Its not a kernel bug that Im sure of. I think its a Debian glibc bug. It
only affects debian potato. We know of one glibc bug that it might
and that is a bug in glibc 2.1 ttyname(). If it works with /proc
you need to get the debian folks to fix their glibc
Subject: 2.2.5ac1 & screen
I noticed Alan wrote in his release notes this breaks screen.
It broke mine.
I tried downgrading the kernel, and screen... Is there any work around?
Here is what I am seeing...
I'm running Debian 2.2 (potato)
[wrmcd@janitor: ~]$ screen -S bitchx bitchx
