You need Unix98 PTY support in your kernel: Device Drivers ---> Character devices ---> [*] Unix98 PTY support Here is a cut from my udev init.d script that mounts the pts. # create pts file system [ -d /dev/pts ] || mkdir --mode=755 /dev/pts [ -c /dev/ptmx ] || mknod --mode=666 /dev/ptmx c 5 2 mount /dev/pts and the line in fstab: none /dev/pts devpts defaults 0 0 If you dont want depend on your fstab, replace the above "mount /dev/pts" with "mount -t devpts none /dev/pts" -- Natanael Copa -- gentoo-embedded@g.o mailing list
