I changed to Arch Linux on my Linode server, and expected to just run irssi in tmux as usual, but
tmux failed to run with the message “
create session failed: : No such file or directory”, which was not very enlightening. Running
tmux -vvv to get some debug output wasn’t at all helpful either.
All the way through the 256
/dev/pty* files are
660 permissions, so just adding my user to the
tty group solved it. I knew it was a permission problem somewhere, but it took a little digging since the error message was very generic.
