Hello, I have numerous problems with tty:
urxvt: could not obtain control of tty
And now I encountered another problem: sudo output goes wrong tty.
For example I log in tty1 as root, and tty2 as user, when I invoke sudo su from user, it prints messages on tty1 where I loged in as root.

this usually happens if you aren't running a logger of some sort. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Tools#System_logger
