Hey guys,

I just setup debian pocketworkstation on my zaurus running pdaxii13. Now whenever I run rxvt I get the follow error:

urxvt: can't initialize pseudo-tty, aborting.

Anybody know what the problem is???

Thanks,

VirtusRex

Rxvt on Debian or PdaXii13?

Have you tried other terminals?

I also had this problem often in the past.

IIRC mounting devpts manually helped.
CODE
mount -t devpts devpts /dev/pts


But I don't know why exactly this helped, and it also didn't always help.
Somehow the amount of available pseudo-ttys was exhausted, maybe becuase the pseudo-ttys didn't get released again after usage.

But this is all only a guess.
Does anyone have definitive information?

An old question, but for the record and the next one looking for a solution:

Most probably because the card was mounted implicitly with -o nodev.
Adding the option 'dev' in /etc/fstab for the sd-card (where I installed pocketworkstation) solved the problem for me.
