An embarrassment of TTYs

Paul D. DeRocco

My core-image-base build seems to have blessed me with 256 pseudoterminal
devices and 325 TTY devices. I really don't deserve this generosity. Is this
normal, or am I just a lucky guy? More to the point, where do I donate the
excess back, so I can live with a more modest number of these devices? I'd
like to be able to do "ls /dev/*" without having my recent activity
disappear off the top of my terminal window scrollback.


Ciao, Paul D. DeRocco
