Have you compiled support for the /dev/pts filesystem into the kernel?
(Device Drivers -> File Systems -> Pseudo File Systems -> /dev/pts)
I had this problem when I was trying out DevFS, because I disabled /dev/pts
Otherwise, check system logs (/var/log/message) and dmesg right after
trying to open a terminal. Also, if you start X with "startx", check
the console for errors.
