There you go!  expect failed to spawn another shell.  I'd highly
recommend trying the very latest version of Knoppix as it resolves the
issue (although the developer didn't think there was an issue, and all
the docs suggested that devpts was configured correctly when I last
investigated it).  I believe if you try to run those tests as root as
opposed to the LFS user they'll pass with flying colours.

Hope this helps,
