Basically what the title says I am running xfc4.10, X starts fine for normal user and I can run xapps ( chrome, spacefm etc ), but if I try to run xterm I get a blank window with a cursor that does nothing, if I try to run Terminal (the xfce version) it flicks up then closes.
If I login and start X as root every thing works fine, if I open a terminal ( xtrem or Terminal ) and su to my normal user account and the try to start a new xterm i get this error:Cannot chmod /dev/ttyp1 to 666 currently 620: Operation not permitted ( and yes I have tried setting the permissions first but the don't stick )
and a dead window again, both the root and user are members of the same groups:bin sys kmem tty tape daemon floppy disk lp dialout audio video utmp usb cdrom console cdrw mail news users
If I run in a chroot environment every thing is fine.
I have tried creating a new user in case the problem was with permissions but got the same results.
I am working from this:http://cblfs.cross-lfs.org/index.php/Main_Page
Aside from this and automounting ( which is a whole 'nother kettle of fish! ) everything seems to be working fine.
