Re: 2.4 -> 2.6 kernel upgrade problem

I read a while ago that the debian package somehow recreates
/dev/null as a regular file. Looks like your /dev/console might
be hosed as well. Here's what they should be:

crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 1, 3 Sep 12 18:58 /dev/null
crw-------  1 root tty 5, 1 Sep 12 18:59 /dev/console

You probably have to boot from CD (or net) to get back into your
system, but you could try init level 1. When you get in, use mknod
to recreate these files if needed.

30 years from now GNU/Linux will be as redundant a term as UNIX/MERT is 
today. - Martin Habets
