makedev


i did a winecheck and it tells me that my one problem is the lack of /dev/sequencer

024. Checking MIDI sequencer device /dev/sequencer... BAD (/dev/sequencer does not exist).
- ADVICE: use MAKEDEV script to create it.


ive tried using the command makedev but the konsole sez there is no such thing, what is it telling me to do?

-thanks

mine is rw-rw--w-

that would be

chmod 662 /dev/sequencer

if that doesn't work try 666

ok thanks for that...but now theres more to the problem

024. Checking MIDI sequencer device /dev/sequencer... BAD (no kernel driver for /dev/sequenceror used by other program?).
- ADVICE: module loading problems ? Read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/modules.txt.



what do i do for this?

The MAKEDEV script in in /dev and you have to run it there, so "cd /dev" followed by "./MAKEDEV audio" should do the trick, then check the permissions on all the created devices. Note that the MAKEDEV script is UPPERCASE, and that linux is case sensitive so "./makedev audio" will not work.
