"screen" program dies
Posted on 1997-05-21
I am trying to run "screen" (3.7.1) on a linux notebook. (redhat 4.1, kernel 2.0.27)
I start on a terminal called /dev/tty1. (note: there is no /dev/pty1)
It takes quite a while to start, then the welcome message is displayed, then "screen" quits.
Onthe other hand, in an Xterminal (on /dev/ttyp0, for example), screenhas no problems.
How can I run "screen" without starting X? For example, can I change the console's tty from /dev/tty1 to /dev/ttyp1?
