The broken bulletin boards you see in 2.4.0 are a consequence of a bug in
lonnet.pm which is fixed in lonnet rev 1.887.
You may wish to install LON-CAPA version 2.4.1 which includes the latest
lonnet.pm (1.890) - this will allow you to display bulletin boards and
simple pages in your courses again.
LON-CAPA 2.4.1 is available from:
Download and extract the contents of the tar file. Then
Once the update is complete restart loncontrol and apache
Although the bulletin board issue you reported is unrelated to the version
of perl-IO-Tty which you have installed, this could affect the functioning
of problems requiring the maxima computer algebra system. If your update to
LONCAPA-prerequisites 1.9 did not update perl-IO-Tty automatically use:
Software -> Install and Remove Software
Search for perl-IO-Tty
Use the spacebar to toggle from i to > to update to version 1.07
(Avail. version should show 1.07; Inst version 1.02).
