Just recently I started vmware2 and got this error message:
Cannot open /dev/tty0: No such file or directory.
Virtual terminal initialization failed. Perhaps your kernel is not configured
with virtual terminal support.
Failed to initialize mouse-keyboard-screen control.
I couldn't find anything on google or a trwal through the -current request
emails, so I'm reduced, once again, to asking for help. Here's some output
that I think (?!@#?) might be relevant:

I'm fairly sure I've run vmware succesfully since I did the last make world
and kernel build, but not certain. In any case, I haven't made any major
changes to my config file (nothing UPDATING didn't tell me to do)
So... where's it gone? If anyone's got any idea I'd be really grateful.
