I have improved the error message in CVS.

You can use strace to see what error it was.  I guess /dev/ptmx is missing
or cannot be opened by the ordinary users.

Thanks to your answer I found the missing key in the kernel config:

File systems  --->
 [*] /dev/pts file system for Unix98 PTYs

If someone need, theese are my kernel config choises to have mc working properly (kernel 2.4.22):

Character devices  --->
 [*] Virtual terminal
 [*]   Support for console on virtual terminal
 [*] Unix98 PTY support
  (256) Maximum number of Unix98 PTYs in use (0-2048)

File systems  --->
 [*] /dev file system support
 [*] /dev/pts file system for Unix98 PTYs

Thanks a lot for the help!
