Package: libc6
Version: 2.2.5-11.8
Severity: Important

(Debian stable, with 2.6 kernel)

/etc/init.d/devpts.sh contains the following:

devpts_avail=`grep -qci '[<[:space:]]devpts' /proc/filesystems || true`
devpts_mounted=`grep -qci '/dev/pts' /proc/mounts || true`
devfs_mounted=`grep -qci '[<[:space:]]/dev[>[:space:]].*devfs' /proc/mounts || true`

if [ $devfs_mounted = 0 ] && [ $devpts_avail != 0 ]

However, surely this is wrong, as `` backticks are used for recording
the stdout of the command, not the return value. because grep -q || true
doesn't print anything, this variable is assigned an empty string.

bash then complains with "[: =: unary operator expected" because it tries
to do
if [ = 0 ]
which is a syntax error. The end result is my devpts isn't mounted and
I can't run programs that want a pts like screen.

Furthermore, adding || true to each of those tests seems to make the
tests redundant, since ` anything || true ` will return 0 (true).

I think you probably want something like
   grep -qci '[<[:space:]]devpts' /proc/filesystems

These bugs are tagged as woody, because they're well-known problems
and for keeping open to come to light what the problem is.  However,
as you know, sarge was released.  Our stable version was moved from
woody to sarge.  It's high time to close old woody's bugs that are
still open.  Now I close these bugs.  If you have any objections to
close them, please reopen and let us know your trouble.
