Cannot open your terminal ‘/dev/pts/0’ – please check.

I always get this error when I am working i a chroot trying to use screen. In the past I have fixed it using the following command.

mount -t devpts devpts /usr/CHROOT/dev/pts

When this fails another alternative is the following:

script /dev/null
screen

Its a bit of a hack but it gets the job done.
