It seems to be a problem with agetty attaching to the tty?? lines. It
opens these like files (If I don't know what I'm talking about let me know)
and apparently Linux permits it to continue, but agetty does not know some
(apparently new) syntax for the fcntl_setlk() UN*X locking call. Does
anyone know _exactly_ where the problem lies, and where we can get a new
agetty? On my system here, it has one of these lines at startup for each
VT i have set up (I have 8) and it occurs every time a login prompt comes
up. Also, if I'm wrong here (I may be, I'm somewhat short on Linux
experience) please, _please_ tell me so. I would like to think I know
what I'm doing, but if I don't I'd like to know that. Thanks.

Win95 isn't the problem - OS/2 and DOS are. Win95 is the answer.

Linux is the answer to the same problem.

Linux is free.
