No controlling TTY
"You have no controlling tty. Cannot read passphrase.
Last month I asked about this error w/ regards to x11-ssh-askpass. Basically
I've narrowed the problem down to wdm, X, and all the apps running in X don't
have any tty. Exactly what the error says oddly enough :).
All of my /dev/tty* are chmod 666 and scp/ssh work from an xterm or vt.
When I do a ps aux the TTY column is '?' where as the regular vt's and the
apps running in a vt are a tty1 and so on. I am curious as to what others see
when doing this. (try M-! tty from emacs.) This appears to be the problem.
With no tty against the xclients, x11-ssh-askpass can't work.
Does anyone have and ideas?
