Perhaps I spoke to soon... I'm still having the issue, this time with
a domain based user.
I executed 'mkpasswd -l -c > /etc/passwd' which again acted as
expected, and the /etc/passwd file was created. I went to edit the
file with 'vim -D /etc/passwd' to change the users' default group and
vim again displayed the message about an error opening input.
Looking in /dev I have:
drwxrwxrwt+ 1 ironhead Users 0 Dec 5 08:22 shm/
drwxrwxrwt+ 1 ironhead Users 0 Dec 5 08:22 mqueue/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ironhead Users 15 Dec 5 08:22 stdin -> /proc/self/fd/0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ironhead Users 15 Dec 5 08:22 stdout -> /proc/self/fd/1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ironhead Users 15 Dec 5 08:22 stderr -> /proc/self/fd/2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ironhead Users 13 Dec 5 08:22 fd -> /proc/self/fd/
(note that the domain user ID is 'csutclif' and 'ironhead' is the
local user ID that was giving me problems before).
Further checking on stdin reveals:
$ ls -ltr /proc/self/fd/0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 csutclif Users 0 Nov 30 2006 /proc/self/fd/0 -> /dev/tty0
however, there is no /dev/tty0. Should there be? If so, how do I create it?
I'm at a loss here, could anybody hazard an idea as to what could be
happening, or how I could further debug the issue?
