Since ALSA 0.9.0 doesn't work that well yet, I'm thought of enabling sound by using the standard kernelmodules. It all goes well, but when I enter the command "MAKEDEV audio" in the directory /dev I'm getting this output:

mv: cannot move 'smtpe3-' to 'smtpe3' : Operation not permitted


This file isn't the only one, there are a lot more.

How can I solve this? I've already tried "chmod 777 smtpe3-" but this doesn't work.


I also have a less important question:

When I update packages, like ALSA, the old packages also stays installed, how can I configure it that when in update a package that the old one will be deleted.


Thanx

It looks like you are using devfs. devfs uses a different mechanism.
you need to modify your /etc/devfsd.conf file

Alsa creates these entries

# ALSA/OSS stuff
# Comment/change these if you want to change the permissions on
# the audio devices
LOOKUP snd MODLOAD ACTION snd
LOOKUP dsp MODLOAD
LOOKUP mixer MODLOAD
LOOKUP midi MODLOAD
REGISTER sound/.* PERMISSIONS root.audio 660
REGISTER snd/.* PERMISSIONS root.audio 660

I'm not real up on devfs myself, still having an issue with my cardreader. I know you can create the device using this file, also richard gooch's site
[http://www.atnf.csiro.au/people/rgooch/linux/docs/devfs.html]
has the devfs documentation. If you know your major minor numbers you can generate the device you need and make sure you have this enabled in the devfsd.conf

# Uncomment this if you want permissions to be saved and restored
# NB: Do NOT change the following!
# Do not do this for pseudo-terminal devices
REGISTER ^pt[sy]/.* IGNORE
CHANGE ^pt[sy]/.* IGNORE
CREATE ^pt[sy]/.* IGNORE
DELETE ^pt[sy] IGNORE
REGISTER .* COPY /lib/dev-state/$devname $devpath
CHANGE .* COPY $devpath /lib/dev-state/$devname
CREATE .* COPY $devpath /lib/dev-state/$devname
DELETE .* CFUNCTION GLOBAL unlink /lib/dev-state/$devname
RESTORE /lib/dev-state
