Hi,
still the same problems - since the mid 2.3.4x kernels i cant
log into my decstation 5000 - It seems the pseudo tty code
is non functional.

An telnet or "ssh" causes the connection to close if requesting a tty.

(flo@ping)~# ssh root@repeat.rfc822.org sh
root@repeat.rfc822.org's password:

I have compiled the kernel without PTY98 support:

# CONFIG_UNIX98_PTYS is not set
# CONFIG_DEVPTS_FS is not set


This looks a bit different:
