Udev, Konsole, funky errors


ok, as soon as i started using udev, i started getting issues. Untill recently, i could not use an X based konsole as a non-root user. I fixed that doing chmod 777 /dev/pty/*

Now, i get this error when i open a konsole in kde:
Code:
/dev/ttyp2 is not the slave for the master pty on fd 3
no colors appear, and when i tried to nano a file, it said:
Code:
Error opening terminal: bash.
I can bypass this by clicking File -> New Linux Console.
I have tried different versons of udev, but all give me this issue...

After i did chmod 777 /dev/pty/*, programs in /sbin and /usr/sbin do not work unless the full path is typed. I can put them back into $PATH, but that only works for that one session...

As non-root, most users who run mplayer get a Segmentation fault.
Same with many other programs, including supertux, and xawtv...

Thanks for all your help,
~ATrain

I have tried converting to an older version of udev, but that does not help.

yes, of course

When i try and run supertux:

Datadir: /usr/share/games/supertux
Sounds disabled
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

Error: I could not set up video for 640x480 mode.
The Simple DirectMedia error that occured was:
Couldn't find matching GLX visual

looks like time for reinstall

i have a nvidia 5200, but i cant use the nvidia glx because it needs 1024x768, and my 17" monitor died, so im stuck on an old 15" which is whining at 800x600...

but supertux ran fine without glx working before...

decided to try sudo chmod 777 /dev/*

it worked....
So I now know that the issue IS a permission issue with UDEV....

Can somebody running gentoo + udev here give me their udev permission file please?
