Hi, all.
I just installed the new world with the xfree86, then I run
startx with icewm. When I tried to fire up the xterm, nothing happend.
It just printed some error messages on console -

xterm: Error 32, errno 2: No such file or directory
Reason: get_pty: not enough ptys

I noticed that we have a new frame in /dev. We mount it as mfs.
Do I just simple type 'sh MAKEDEV all' in /dev or is there any other
correct method to fix it?
