Bug#570382: after upgrade: "vlogin: openpty(): No such file or directory"
Thanks, I tested that , and it does seem to work.
Hopefully this bug is being worked on by someone upstream.
AFAIK it's not worked on upstream and very probably fixed in newer
vserver releases. I asked on vserver's IRC channel and was told in quite
clear words something along the lines of "we don't care about ancient
<preferred fecal word of your choice> kernels that Debian ships". You may
want to re-inquiry @vserver.
On a different note: the last update to the most recent DSA kernels 
went completely smoothly - that is all vservers restarted without a
hickup. Makes me wonder if that was caused by a change in the
2.6.26-24lenny1 kernel? We'll see at the next upgrade.
I'm Cc:ing this to all bug report participants, I hope you all don't mind.
