It a simple issue. Just do the following steps
1. Enter your root password
2. Open /etc/fstab, check whether there is a entry called
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
3. if it's there then no prob, just run "fsck", else enter this whole line in /etc/fstab
4. When system is booting just add this to your booting option screen selinux=0
