sorry could not find a pty resource busy

  • Hi,

    When I want to do a screen /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART 115200 in terminal i get a 'resource busy', any idea how to fix this?


  • Looks like that you just can make one connection to a /dev/tty... If you try to do more you get the busy message.

    Try to add the option:

          -d -r   Reattach a session and if necessary detach it first.

    ex: screen -d -r /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART 115200
    Check out more options with man screen ;)

    I checked under Linux Mint. Are you using OSX?
