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...
