due to demand for Palm m500 compatible evolution RPMS I just put 4 RPMS
at the following URL:

evolution-1.0.8-et.3.i386.rpm               (binaries are stripped)
gnome-pilot-0.1.65-et.3.i386.rpm    (contains gnome-pilot-devel)

This now works fine with my M515, but now I find that I can't start a
wterm (rxvt modified to be WindowMaker-like). I get these messages:

wterm: can't open pseudo-tty
wterm: aborting

It does work when I'm root, so it's got to be some kind of permissions
thing, but I can't figure it out, nor can I see why installing these
packages could have caused it. I even added some stuff to
/etc/security/console.perms like this:
<console>=tty[0-9][0-9]* vc/[0-9][0-9]* pty/[sm][0-9][0-9][0-9]*
:[0-9]\.[0-9] :[0-9]

but it didn't help. Does anyone have a clue?
