I get this error message when I try to log in to my box with my username. I change the default shell: /bin/tcsh by /usr/local/bin/sudosh. At the console or if I log in as root and try to do a "su - myusername" I got this message:

"Cannot open cloning master pty: Permission denied
open pty failed: Permission denied"

I changed the shell with chsh -s /usr/local/bin/sudosh myusername, as root.
I didn't change the root shell, only the shell of my test user.

I run under a livecd done by my self (it run under 6.3 p#5).

I rerun the procedure above and I get the same error (double check, sometime ...)
