In 5.x devices are automatically built for you on first use.
That is just one of the changes between 4.x and 5.x.
THAT IS WHY MAKEDEV DOES NOT WORK FOR YOU.

long this time. My box is a dell optiplex gx1 and using old school
rules catted dmesg.boot and found pcm0<my card> but when I tried to
run sh MAKEDEV snd0
I find that makedev is now deprecated. please assist in my using
devfs to make device
