Try this, it might work ... 
Check if there is a /dev/MAKEDEV, there should be one.
Go into /dev/	:	cd /dev
write		:	./MAKEDEV ttye1
			./MAKEDEV ttye2
			./MAKEDEV ttye3

Check if they there now.

To fix the hole /dev/ directory you could also type in:
The MAKEDEV script will then try to make all the entries it supposed to.

If these things doesn't work, look up in the manuals for mknod
man mknod
mknod is the program that in the end makes the /dev/ entries,
I havent had so much need to use it, so I'm not really sure how it works.

Maybe someone else could answer to this ?
