Re: /dev permissions after reboot (and panic)
:Ah, by the way, I'm having this problem for some time, too. E.g., sendmail
:complains incessantly on console that it can't write to /dev/null, and some
:other userspace programs can't work as supposed of the same reason (I don't
:remember which though).
:Happens with every installation of 1.2.0-RELEASE and 1.3.x-DEVELOPMENT. Three
:boxes are affected.
:The only common thing I see there is installing with 1.2.0 installer which I
:throw into iso's of 1.3.x, too.
Well, if its the same shutdown problem the fix will be MFC'd to the
release at the end of the week. You can fix the problem manually by
chmod'ing the devices to their proper permissions. e.g.
chmod 666 /dev/null
chmod 666 /dev/zero
On HEAD all you should need to do is install a new kernel, reboot, and
reboot again to see if the corrected permissions stick.
