/dev/null: Permission Denied


Hey,

I run a redhat 9 server and have been receiving this message when trying to login via ssh

Code:
Server refused to allocate pty
-bash: line 28: /dev/null: Permission denied
                                            -bash: line 4: /dev/null: Permission denied
How can I fix this, as I just reinstalled the other day due to have some problems mounting the proc file system and other problems on boot. I have not been able to get it rebooted because it is in a remote location...I can get someone there to reboot it for me, but I would like to know if that is going to work.
Thanks for any help,
Derek

probable kernel problem

Maybe the problem is with your kernel. This can be caused by a corrupted installation source. Make sure your installation media is good (e.g. md5sum check).

Could it possible be a corrupted hard disk. Because on several occasions, I have run media tests on the cds and they have passed every time.

Yes, it is possible! If your installation medium is good, it is a good idea to check your hard disk.
