‘been absent for a while – PTO and stuff

Here are the two major show-stoppers of today which nearly cracked my head:
PTY allocation request failed on channel 0

This occured when I tried to login to a xen domain I just created – took a while to figure out how to solve that but doing a
ssh user@host "/bin/bash -i" (notice the -i for interactive)
helped in accessing the vm and then i could reset the dev’s:
rm -r /dev/ptmx
mknod /dev/ptmx c 5 2
chmod 666 /dev/ptmx
umount /dev/pts
rm -r /dev/pts
mkdir /dev/pts
mount /dev/pts

The second Problem was a erroneous cd-rom drive that stopped working in the middle of the installation process. The wonderfull tool UNetbootin saved the day by providing me with a bootable USB stick in a matter of seconds.

Happy weekend,
Willi

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I
    was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.
