Subjectxterm: no available ptys
Hello,

I have created a trimmed down /dev directory to be
used with my custom bootable Linux CD. I've run into
a problem where I can't start an xterm. I get the
error...

xterm: no available ptys

I'm not sure which device I'm missing in /dev. I'm no
expert on how the tty's and stuff work so feel free to
fill me in. Everything else seems to work fine on the
CD.

Here is what my /dev directory looks like now:

/dev:
console
cua0
cua1
cua2
cua3
fb
fb0
fb1
fb2
fb3
fb4
fb5
fb6
fb7
fd0
fd1
hda
hdb
hdc
hdd
kmem
listing
mem
mouse
null
psaux
pts
|...0
ram
ram0
ram1
ram2
ram3
ramdisk
scd0
scd1
scd2
scd3
scd4
scd5
scd6
scd7
tty
tty0
tty1
tty2
ttyp0
ttyp1
ttyp2
ttyp3
ttyp4
urandom
zero

Am I missing something?

Any help appreciated!
