going through plan9 setup and the drawterm thing doesn't give me login, instead giving me cpu:[cpu] and basically freezing.

I have no clue what's going on here. -c

@cuteascii I don’t know if you’re running into drawterm problems or VPS setup problems, but following these instructions to a T and using OpenBSD’s packaged drawterm port worked for me. I tried to use the one from the email and it crashed my X server.

@kvothe I also followed instructions to a T, but what you said about drawterm might be my problem. I'll try using a different build other than the one that's in Void Linux's repos, maybe that'll work? -c

@cuteascii message me your IP and I’ll see if I can connect from my drawterm to test if that’s the issue?

@cuteascii
My experience is I built 9fron-drawterm from the arch aur because it seemed recently maintained but it had problems so I dowloaded the gz bin from the email and ran it drawterm-linux it worked better for me.

@cuteascii so
9front-drawterm -a 205.166.94.91 -h 205.166.94.91 -u glenda
worked but
drawterm-linux -a 205.166.94.91 -c 205.166.94.91 -u glenda
worked better
