You did compile your kernel with pty support?
And you do mount devpts? With an fstab line like:
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0

  Yes...I did compile everything in...but I didnt MOUNT it...sigh
  Sorry for the false alarm.

  But one question remains: I am using devfs(d). I have to
  mount devpts /really/ after calling devfd and not in fstab...
  or are there other chnces ?

I don't think it has to do anything with devfs, but with the way the 2.6
kernel works. It now needs devpts mounted, but I forgot what the context is.
I have no idea if it should be mounted before or after calling devfsd, I just
let my distribution handle that.
