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
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"
