for pseudo ttys, new style, to work, you need to have /dev/ptmx
11:08:35ghovs at ghovs - ~> ls /dev/ptmx -l
crw-rw---- 1 root uucp 5, 2 Jan 4 11:08 /dev/ptmx
and /dev/pts dir
11:08:57ghovs at ghovs - ~> ls -ld /dev/pts
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Dec 11 12:16 /dev/pts
And that's pretty much it.
I'm not 100% sure if these permissions are right, but it _works_ this way and
the permissions on the actual ptys in /dev/pts are certainly secure.
