I am having some problems running gnome terminal in an FC6 Xen guest I
downloaded from jailtime.org,

I don't know whether it is due to the host configuration or not. I think it is
because of the image itself. I transferred VMware images for Centos
4.4 to Xen and it works okay on that host.

This is the error when I try to run gnome terminal

"There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"

and it appears that some /dev related devices are not created
properly. /dev/pts is definitely not created.

I also have  to chmod o+rw /dev/null, /dev/random and /dev/urandom in
rc.local to get some things to work properly after I reboot.

Googling indicates that some entries relating to CONFIG_UNIX98_XXX
values related to the kernel have to be adapted to get things to work
properly. Where can I do this?

Are there some MAKEDEV related entries that I have to edit as well?
