Hi, I just build or rather used the slackware root mentioned a short while
ago. Thanks for that post it made things so much easier.
However, when I run ssh, both the included openssh and the ssh.com verion I
get a quote "/dev/ptmx no such file or directory."
When I do a ls -al /dev/ptmx I get a device with a major and minor of 5 and
2 which the man page confirms.
What am I doing wrong? It's unable to allocate pty's as a result, ssh.

Does directory /dev/pts exist and did you mount the devpts filesystem on
it? And does the kernel have that support? It seems to be a mandatory
option in kernel 2.6.x but it could be omitted in 2.4.x. Here's my line
#Device Mtpt Type Options fsck order
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
