I installed gentoo. Added a normal user, then merged fluxbox. Then logged out of the terminal as root and logged in again as the normal user. I proceeded to create .xinitrc and add fluxbox to it.

I then ran startx and opened fluxbox session with no problems. The next time i used the computer (after a reboot), when i login as this normal user i get the error:

Code:
-bash: /dev/null: Permission denied
-bash: /dev/null: Permission denied


If i then startx i am not even able to start xterm window from the fluxbox session. None of this is a problem however if i login as root. I can start an xterm or happily browse the internet with lynx or whatever. What have i done to create this problem?
