Another problem with the new glibc & old kernel pair, anywho; this is an easy fix, just remember to do it before you logout, or it’s a little painful (unless you have root privs)
# # /etc/fstab: static file system information # # <file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> devpts /dev/pts devpts defaults 0 0 shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid 0 0
rm -rf /dev/ptmx mknod /dev/ptmx c 5 2 chmod 666 /dev/ptmx umount /dev/pts rm -rf /dev/pts mkdir /dev/pts mount /dev/pts
WAIT, I rebooted, and can’t access my vps, how do I fix this?
Well a couple solutions include you logging into a serial console and running the commands.
Or if you have root access availiable you can login with:
ssh yourserver.com '/bin/bash -i' #Run all the same procedures as above, reboot
Otherwise you’re kinda screwed, and just have to reinstall your VPS, and fix the issue before you reboot…
