kernel rebuild messes ssh up


So i've compiled a 2.6.10 kernel and got it running great, nfs works fine, and so does internet. The only problem i have is with ssh. Upon bootup i get this message:
Code:
Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server: sshd.
NET: Registered protocol family 10
Disabled Privacy Extensions on device c02fe120(lo)
and when i try to connect from my main to my server via ssh i get the username prompt and the password prompt, but after typing in the password i get:
Code:
login as:
password:
Server refused to allocate pty
But when i switch back over to one of my old kernels like 2.6.8 it works fine (these are prebuilt debian kernels). I'm guessing that while minimizing modules i probably screwed up on an important one. Can anyone tell me where i went wrong? I've been searching for a bit and haven't found anything that could help with this. I'm using a 3Com Corporation 3c905B 100BaseTX [Cyclone] card. Thanks.

You'll probably want to enably support for UNIX-style ptys. (CONFIG_LEGACY_PTYS) (Character device drivers/Legacy (BSD) pty support for menu-style configuration).

I've built in Unix98 and Legacy (BSD) pty but i still can't log in... You know any other way to fix this? Otherwise i'll just scrap my current configuration try again and be alot more conservative, but i think it'd be better to do it the other way around.

EDIT: I guess this is also the reason i can't start terminals in x window system...

Do you have /dev/pts support? (PTS filesystem, I believe)

Now i do, i've decided to clear my configuration and start again, this time carefully selecting all the modules i remove, so basically i've only touched things i'm familiar with like networking and graphic drivers... Hopefully it'll work fine next reboot, if not i'll be here again posting :P.
