Hi,
I did not mean to change the permissions to 777 permanently. Just to come to a conclusion on whether it is a permission problem. As 90% unix problems are related to permissions.

Just give 777 permissions to /var/log/messages

This is BAD advice, and you should NOT follow it. If you do, you will give anyone the ability to modify or delete your log entries, which yoou do NOT want. Find and fix the actual problem; don't bypass the symptom with something that reduces system security.
