Description ysyi 1999-05-26 04:20:14 UTC
`finger` prints "/<num>" as the user's tty (if on a pty,
that is), instead of "pts/<num>" (on 2.2 kernels with
"Unix98 PTY" support, which 6.0 ships with). Not much of a
bug, but somewhat lame.

A patch for this can be found at:

if you're so inclined to fix it...
