Description Clock 2003-12-17 05:54:08 UTC
install.html omits mentioning the user must enable /dev/pts filesystem
(both devices and the filesystem) and mount it prior starting samba.
Otherwise, during changing password, smbd will crast with "can't create
master/slave pty".
Comment 1 Jelmer Vernooij 2004-01-02 08:26:24 UTC
Install assumes you have a decent basic POSIX system installed. /dev/pts is 
part of that. Also, I think /dev/pts only has to be present if utmp support is 
enabled.
