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"
