View Full Version : [ubuntu] Failed fork pty error

December 7th, 2009, 10:12 AM
Ok, so I am fairly new at Ubuntu, but I'd really like a solution to the forked pty issue. I run jaunty 9.04 and it worked fine until package manager broke. After I do what appears correct I still keep getting failed fork pty error.
Please give a solution.
I've done the ctl/alt F1 for terminal and entered this code many times:
sudo cp /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh.dpkg-dist /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh
New Error message: mountdevsubfs.sh is not a directory, or is not found or whatever. Whether or not I have mis-entered the code, I don't know, but I type what I see.
All I want is to get my DVD drive recognized and Mediabuntu to work.

I'd like help on this, but please don't give me the snarky, look on Google stuff again.
I just want to get the terminal and/or package manager to work.

Thank you
