/dev/console is probably a symbolic link to /dev/console, perhaps through
one or more other symbolic links. I don't know why it would have gotten
that way. You can probably fix it with these shell commands.

	rm /dev/console
	mknod /dev/console c 4 0
	chown root.tty /dev/console
	chmod 111 /dev/console
