Serial over Bluetooth - 'Inappropriate ioctl' error

Postby neilneil2000 » 2017-09-13 12:50

Hi, I have configured rfcomm to allow me to connect a console session over bluetooth. This seems to be working reliably, however I get the following errors at login. I have searched everywhere and can find others with the same problem but no solution.

Code: Select all
-bash: cannot set terminal process group (XXX): Inappropriate ioctl for device
-bash: no job control in this shell


XXX varies depending on when the job starts.

But if you just press enter do you get a normal prompt anyway?

I do, but there are various other impacts of this not being correctly set. Like having to tell sudo to accept a password from stdin.
