there is a chance that your /dev/null device is broken. You can test it with:
panic% echo > /dev/null
It should silently complete the command. If it doesn't, /dev/null is broken. Refer to your OS's manpages to learn how to restore this device. On most Unix flavors, this is how it's done:
panic# rm /dev/null panic# mknod /dev/null c 1 3 panic# chmod a+rw /dev/null
You need to create a special file using mknod, for which you need to know the type and both the major and minor modes. In our case, cstands for character device, 1 is the major mode, and 3 is the minor mode. The file should be readable and writable by everybody, hence the permission mode settings (a+rw).
