grsecurity and

I patched my kernel, configured it and compiled it. I followed the "quickstart.pdf" file.

I'm not really sure where to start...

When I boot-up to the kernel I'm getting permission denied errors when I run 'pico textfile'. I'm as root when all this is happening. I'm also getting some permission denied errors when booting up, I think it has something to do with libraries? Also when I run 'named' i'm getting a permission denied error with 'shared libraries'. God knows what else is 'permission denied'.

What's up with these permission denied stuff? How do I circumvent this problem?

I'm a noob, is there some kind of manual? the quickstart.pdf shows how to 'get started quick' but doesn't explain much.

I initially wanted to install grsecurity because someone recommended it to me because of the 'limited ps -aux' feature for normal users.

Any help is appreciated.

I'm totally lost here.

distro is slackware 10.1

freakyg, either post something useful, or don't post anything at all when you don't know what you're talking about..

pico comes with the package 'pine', which is found in slackware.

As for your libncurses and permissions, i've heard that usually happens when you install gsecurity.

try typing
ldd /bin/bash
ldd /usr/bin/pico

It'll show you what libraries its using, their location, and one of them should be Make sure its owned by root (-rw-r--r--)

all i can find is information on setting up bootscripts, which i'm not sure if its related or not.
