Hi hitsware
This will create the correct special file:
Code: [Select]
sudo mknod -m 664 /dev/snd/seq c 116 1
sudo chown root:staff /dev/snd/seq
I don't think it's going to help you unless there is a driver associated with it.

I may be clutching @ straws.
I keep getting an error ' file not found '
I am assuming that on installation something
will write to it .
I tried the 'make new directory' on the edit utility
but got ' operation denied ' or somesuch

Half-assed error reporting won't fly. I feel reasonably certain that there are no programs that return the
error "somesuch". No one but you can see what's on your screen, which makes it your responsibility to
accurately report what shows up on it.
There was a typo in the mknod command I posted, it has been corrected.

Better ass/2 than no ass at all :)

Tell me again how to paste my terminal screen into messages on this forum.

Hi hitsware
Move the mouse pointer to where you wish to start copying. Press and hold the left mouse button down, and
proceed to drag the cursor until all the text you wish to copy is highlighted, then release the mouse button.
Move the mouse cursor to your browser to where you wish to paste to, click the left button once to place the
cursor, and click the center mouse button once to paste the text.

Hi hitsware
Are you referring to the icon with the pen on it that starts the text editor?

Hi hitsware
The Editor app is only capable of creating a new file name in an existing directory, it cannot create a new
directory. It is also not suitable for creating entries in the /dev directory, that's what the mknod command
is for.
