When I issued the ifconfig commands, I got the "invalid device" reply.
I saw an equal number of messages on the UML console that it was trying to use a device in /dev/ptys.
No devices with names like the one being used exist, so I figure you're trying to get a psudeotty and failing.
Linux 2.4 kernels with MY configuration puts pseudottys in /dev/ptys with numeric names. The standard RHL kernel did something different, though I don't recall precisely what.
Some product, which I think is xemacs, has a problem with the RH way of doing it; I surmise that in some cicumstances UML has a problem with the way I do it.
