Yeah, it's me again.. ;)
I'm constantly running out of pty's (virtual terminal lines).
I recompiled the kernel with pty set to 48 (and according to binpatch,
the number really is 48). I created the device nodes pty[qrs]* and
tty[qrs]* using MAKEDEV. I rebooted. Still, only the first 16 pty's
are used by the system. When they run out, screen etc. refuses to work.
What am I doing wrong?
