Terminal windows in X don't work
I've posted this in the General forum, but so far the only reply I've received is that more information is needed, but being a Linux n00b, I really don't know what is pertinent to the problem.
Just today I compiled from source (for the first time, mind you) my own 2.4.20-19.9 kernel. Much to my surprise, it worked after fixing a few USB and IEEE1394 problems. However, if I try to open an xterm or a gnome-terminal under X using my user account, I only get a blinking cursor and never receive a shell prompt. It works fine if I'm logged in as root.
This used to work just fine with my old 2.4.20-18.9 kernel that I installed from rpm. Obviously I've done something terribly wrong when I compiled the -19.9 kernel. Anyone have any ideas what I did wrong?
