problem with pty_fork

Post by Miguel de Ica » Wed, 30 Dec 1992 07:24:10

Currently I'am using Ultrix 4.3 (a mix between 4.2 and 4.3 BSD), and I
have a problem:

I need to fork a pty, but the TIOCSCTTY ioctl call doesn't exist in
4.2 (nor Ultrix).

I've tried to use Ricard Stevens' examples for forking the pty, but
they don't work with pre-4.3 Unixes.

Thanks in advance,

I have an IBM 37.5 GB hard disk and I'm trying to duel boot Windows 98 SE
and Linux.  In the oversize disk HOWTO
(, it mentions
that a distribution running the 2.2.14 kernel will survive the insane 33.8
GB Linux booting limit.  Does this mean that I can successfully install
RedHat Linux 6.2 (the new RedHat with the Linux 2.2.14 kernel) on hard drive
with partitions like:
|  Windoze  (GBs 1-19)
|            |
|            |
|            |
|     RH 6.2 (20-37.5)
|            |
|            |
|            |

Note:  I can't seem to duel boot the RH 6.1 and Windoze.  I've had many
problems each and every time I try it and I've had to delete all partitions
on my drive and install Windoze using its own CDROM disc and its simple
