Anyone familiar with development BLFS? [SOLVED]

I decided to go with the development instructions for installing BLFS, and everything went rather well.

But logging in with a normal user is faulty.

Logging in gives me some errors:

"/dev/null: permission denied"

And openning an xterm in fluxbox:

"No more ptys"

But I get no problem with logging in with root or enter superuser mode.

Any ideas?

It's a permission problem. giving access to people in the group: users will fix the problem, but I am sure eggs as eggs, that the problem will keep manifesting itself after each reboot. Is there something I can do to keep permissions from going away?

UPDATE: Situation is solved, for some odd reason, the udev "rules" configuration files didn't get copied properly. And now everything is right in the world.

Thanks anyway.
