Try moving .screenrc to .screenrc.bak. It couldĀ just be a corrupted config file.

I use the fenrir screen reader, and after updating yesterday, it will no
longer work in the console. I have tested it in a PTY, and it works fine
there, so it's not a change in the screen reader itself. Also, it is the
same version that was being used before the update.

Also, interestingly, screen gives an error when I launch it now. It did
not used to do this, but it flashes up an error that I can't review
because it's gone as quickly as it appears. I probably wouldn't have
noticed it at all if it wasn't for speakup reading the error. So I'm
probably not spelling this exactly, but it sounds like it is saying:

/home/storm/.screenrc expected character, x, or ioctl 38

The interesting part from the Fenrir log is, there are quite a few of
these errors:

ERROR 2023-02-16 06:55:48.420559: VCSA:updateWatchdog:[Errno 6] No such
device or address

I have checked and all the /dev/vcs stuff is there. It even seems to
have the correct permissions and ownership. Here is a sample:

crw-rw---- 1 root tty 7, 1 Feb 15 18:30 /dev/vcs1

Does anyone have any idea what may be going on with this? Oh, and I'm
using Linux-lts:

linux-lts 5.15.94-1
