- Subject: ssh ... PTY allocation request failed on channel 0
I am trying to ssh to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I get the error
"PTY allocation request failed on channel 0"
I tried ssh -vv ..., but did not see anything meaningful.
googling I found references to devices ptmx and pts.
There is a /dev/ptmx. I can see it if I do ls /dev/ptmx but not if I
do ls /dev (why?).
I also tried mount /dev/pts (as shown on google), but it failed
does not have a corresponding entry.
Am I going in the right direction, or something else the problem?
