14 Same here on two different boxes, ~x86 and ~amd64. I'm on LXDE,
15 ~/.lxde_errors reports that rxvt could not start due to lack of
16 pseudo-terminals. Issuing
17 # mount /dev/pts
18 by hand temporarily solves the issue.
20 A related issue might be that during the boot I see that /dev/shm could
21 not be mounted. /dev/pts and /dev/shm are both mounted by
22 /etc/init.d/devfs, maybe that's failing?
24 The last emerge pulled in
25 sys-apps/openrc-0.11.1
26 sys-fs/udev-init-scripts-17-r1
28 but neither one has any bugs open relevant to this. Other ideas?
