I have experienced this same problem a few days ago while installing
Axiom on a fresh Mandrake 10 system. I am not very familiar with the
Mandrake or Redhat distros, but I know they have been fairly similar
in the past. Perhaps this fix will work for you. You probably have
restrictive permissions for the pty devices under /dev/pty. Try giving
yourself read/write access (the error is coming from clef, the Axiom
rewrite of GNU Readline, which explains why you do not see the same
problem when executing AXIOMsys).
