There is a bad bug in the configure scripts in lyx 1.2.2 which deletes /dev/null when run as root. As a workaround, run configure as ordinary user. To recreate /dev/null, boot from floppy, mount the partition containing /dev (probably the root partition) and use something similar to mknod -m a+rw /mounted/partion/dev/null c 1 3 There is no need to re-install anything, though...
