ttymon cannot be respawned for /dev/console

Post by Qun Ge » Sun, 18 Sep 1994 04:58:36



Sometimes, when I killed a user's X server on his console, ttymon cannot
respawn for /dev/console. So, the user will not get login prompt on his
console. When i try to manually run the ttymon in /etc/inittab:

/usr/lib/saf/ttymon -g -h -p "`uname -n` console login: " -T sun
-d /dev/console -l console -m ldterm,ttcompat

I got the error message:

Push (ldterm) on /dev/console failed, errno = 6

Anyone can tell me how I got this problem and what I should do to
restart ttymon for /dev/console beside reboot the machine?

Thanks

I have observed the same behaviour, with both Solaris 2.2 and Solaris
2.3.  I also tried restarting ttymon and changing init states to no
avail.  I would be grateful for an answer.

1. ttymon error:ttymon cannot allocate controlling tty on /dev/console

I can't at the moment make a console login to my Sun Solaris 2.7 box,
but only login remotely by way of ssh or rlogin.
    If I try to make a console login, it gives the following messages:

        Warning -- ttymon cannot allocate controlling tty on
"/dev/console". There may be another session active on this port.

Have any one got any ideas for the solution to this problem?
