Hey, I am in my chroot enviroment doing binutils again:

and I get this message:
root:/source/binutils-2.18# expect -c "spawn ls"
spawn ls
The system has no more ptys.  Ask your system administrator to create more.
    while executing
"spawn ls"

how do I fix this? The book said I have to fix it before running the test
suite but it doesn't explain how. I am running Kubuntu 7.10
I didn't get this message before
