Inappropriate ioctl for device
My host is using PHP Version 5.2.6, I have no control it's setup
There is something strange going on:
I pass a variable to a page with tables it works, pass the same to a
page using CSS <div> instead of <table> I get the warning PHP
"Inappropriate ioctl for device"
I am learning how to use CSS, PHP and templates which is supose to
simplify life. I is only making mine more confused.
The test site is at gasperaux.canadian-dream.com
The problem is with this script I think, it is identical in both file
since I cut and paste it.
<?php include_once($config['tem...stty: : Inappropriate ioctl for device
stty: : Inappropriate ioctl for device
I am getting this error in a standard ksh script
it really doesnt do anything fancy, so Im having
a hard time tracking it down.. My main clue is that
it does not happen when I run it on a different box
in a similar environment.. The only stty that the shell
sets is stty istrip.
Any ideas (or solutions of course ) appreciated (reasons

I have a python program that downloads database backups from a remote server, and tries to replace the local database with the downloaded backup. The database is a PostgreSQL server and my program calls the pg_restore command with the aid of the wonderful pexpect module. Everything works fine if I start this program from a tty. When I try to start the same program from cron, I get this nasty exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):

I'm writing a shell program that will do background/foreground executions.
I also implemented the 'fg' command that will bring a background job to the
foreground. All work fine on Linux. However, on Solaris (SunOS 5.9) when
the shell passes terminal control to the background child process, the
tcsetpgrp(fd, child_pgrp_id) call returns an error: "Inappropriate ioctl for
Although I use same open() call for Linux and Solaris to get the file
descriptor of the controlling terminal, Linux successfully returns a fd that
I can use while Solaris returns -1 for..."Inappropriate ioctl for device" error
I have a korn shell script that calls a child script in the background.
The strucuture of my script is as follows:
while read line
ksh anotherscript.ksh $line &
done < file
Everything seems to work well. I see the desired results but the
problem (rather small issue is) when i check the log file created by
parent process, i see following line appearing multiple times

I dont know what this error is and am not sure about the potential
threat this poses let's say going forward in pre-production a...Inappropriate ioctl for device using system("useradd")
My line of code is simply...

$opts") || die "Useradd : $!\n";
and dying with:

I haven't a clue : )
Running CentOS, 4.4 up to date.

...(unable to open "/dev/acd0"): Inappropriate ioctl for device
I tried to install the port "sysutils/dvd+rw-tools" on a release 5.4 FreeBSD
box. The installation process seems to complete without error. But when I
tried to issue the command
to format a dvd+rw disk in the drive, I got the following error message:
DVD RW/-RAM format utility by email@example.com, version 4.10
:-(unable to open "/dev/acd0"): Inappropraite ioctl for device
I have verified with dmesg to make sure that my DVD+RW drive is at acd0.
What does "ioctl for device" mean? What doe..."Inappropriate ioctl for device" while upload()ing using CGI.pm
I'm using the procedural upload() function from CGI.pm.
In this line:
my $fd_file = upload( 'file' ) or die( "upload() ( $! )" );
I encounter the weird-looking error:
"Inappropriate ioctl for device".
I don't understand what could be the problem. I did exactly like they
say in the manual.
Can you please help me solve this problem?
Thanks a lot!
