Huh.. interesting.. let's see who spits that out..

 find . -name \*.c -print -exec grep "Unable to determine your tty name" {} \; > ../foo

emacs ./foo

Yields this line...

./tmp/work/armv7a-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/tinylogin-1.4-r6/tinylogin-1.4/login.c
    "Unable to determine your tty name."

sooo..

emacs ./tmp/work/armv7a-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/tinylogin-1.4-r6/tinylogin-1.4/login.c

Yields...
#define    NO_TTY \
    "Unable to determine your tty name."

and...

    if (ut) {
        utent = *ut;
    } else {
        if (picky) {
            puts(NO_UTENT);
            exit(1);
        }
        line = ttyname(0);
        if (!line) {
            puts(NO_TTY);    <<------------------
            exit(1);
        }
   


WHich brings us to the question what ttyname does, well, it , according to man ttyname  returns teh device name that the login is trying to occur on and a null string if the port is unknown.

WHich brings the next question.. why isn't this working for you?  It SHOULD just work out of the box, to get a login, so something with your system is different than "out of the box."  have you rebuilt the kernel? are you trying to do this over a serial port? and ethernet connection? ...???

I think you need ot give us more details. 

Which cpu? What system are you connecting from? over what media? what is the kernel configuration you are using on the target you are trying to log in on? etc etc.  Might be able to get more betterer reply then.

When you say nothing happens, do you mean like NOTHING? as in it acts as if it doesn't even see your login attempt?
Or does it then ask for a password and etc.?
