4.0-RC1: /dev/null permission denied in Chapter 6

Hi all,

Trying 4.0-RC1. All works well, also in chapter 6 until reaching Linux  
header installation. Step "make include/linux/version.h" exited with error: 
/dev/null Permission denied. I ignored it. Next in glibc step 
"../glibc-2.2.5/configure ... " exits also with error: /dev/null Permission 

I followed the book and did no deviation. My Host Distro is Knoppix 3.1, a 
german run-from-CD Distro, with all needed development stuff. 

I tried to echo some text to /dev/null, but I also get a "permission denied" 
error.  So I removed all devices and recreated them with the makedev 
script. Didn't help.

Any Ideas ?

Thanks, Thomas
