I ran the command and got the following, which looks similar to the
crw------- 1 root tty 5, 1 Oct 19 2002 /dev/console
I also tried out several other commands and I can vi, ls, mkdir, mv,
rmdir, ping, cat, chmod, chown, ps, login, logout and kill with no
problems. This should get most of the jobs done that I need to do.
All the commands in /bin/ have permission to execute for all users
and I am definitely logged in as root, which has rwx for all.
Don't worry too much about this, more is not exactly vital to me.
