i've tried mknoding /dev/ptya*, /dev/tty[0-9]*, setting ownership and permissions, as well as mounting the devpts filesystem, but the error remains. anyone have an idea what i'm forgetting to do? any help would be appreciated, as i'm starting to run out of ideas.


What happens if you did a mount /dev /new_to_be_root/dev
chroot /new_to_be_root
