Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2426
RedHat 6.0 FTP install, /dev/pts not added to fstab
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I successfully completed a FTP installation of v6.0 and upon
loading Gnome and accessing a terminal, the terminal comes
up with the cursor but typing produces no output. NetScape,
file managers and editors work.
what does /etc/fstab look like?

Try doing the following as root:
mount -o mode=0620,gid=5 -t devpts none /dev/pts
Does that solve the problem with gnome-terminal?

You can put the line:
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
in your /etc/fstab, so the filesystem would be mounted at boot.
Could not replicate this on a test machine. I did a 5.2 install then
upgraded by ftp to 6.0.
