Did you recently change your kernel? rxvt/gnome-terminal require you to
have the "pts" file system mounted. It's part of devfs in 2.4, but NOT
in 2.6. Run "mount" and you should see output like this:
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
or something about devfs if you're using devfs with 2.4. If it's not
mounted, mount it.
and did use compile PTS filesystem. Once compiled, things work again.
